    Im very happy about the way this load, and my rifle is shooting.

    Shot prone with a Harris Bipod laying in the weeds with a rear sand sock

    Now before you bust my nuggets that these are not 5 shot groups remember reloading supplies are hard to come by and I have a match in 2 weeks.

    Who did the paint and what did it run? I want to get my rig painted and I like the looks of that.

    Do it after a few beers, I have to not care how it looks while doing it. Just what it looks like in the end. lol

    I had a hard time painting my gun it was very cool looking before
