    There's just over 60 rounds through it. The only actual groups I shot with it were 2-5 round groups at 100 yards with some 52gr sierra bthp's that grouped just over .5". I hadn't started any load development with it yet, those were just handloads I had loaded up for one of my Remington 700's. Shows great potential though.

    I believe it is, I'd have to check when I get home.

    Not sure if it's centerfeed vs. staggerfeed, does build date help or is there a way I can look?

    Measure between the action screws. 4.25" = staggerfeed.
