    This was a 270 Win that I wanted a little more kick out of and also do some of the build work myself. It ended up turning into my lighter weight long range carry/backpacking rifle.

    I sent if up to Lone Wolf Stocks to have a custom Howler Thumb Hole stock fitted to it and while it was there Bob gave it to Jeff down the street to have thier extreem service metal coating put on all the metal. I am really happy how it came out. The scope, rings and bipod have all been painted to match but the Jeff said he would let me put it all together since I need to adjust the scope to myself.
