    Wow, you started yours in December and got it now? I've been waiting for mine for over a year now, life's too short for this!

    Hope you enjoy it.

    yes, and i thought that was wayyy too long to wait, i am just impatient and want things yeaterday. i have to thank russo for getting the stock to me with in 6-7 weeks so i could get dave on it. he had the barrel on hand so by the time the stock was sent by russo, it was already chambered by dave.


    thanks! thats the cabinet with all my favorites. the other is just shotguns, lever action stuff and cheaper guns.



    i shot the barrel in this past weekend, and just breaking it in at 300 yards, it made consistant 1.25 to 1.5 inch 5 shot groups. keep in mind i cleaned after every shot, so it wasn't ideal barrel conditions. i haden't even began to tune loads for it. i also loaded up a few rounds for an 800 yard trial ,and 5 out of five hit within 5 inches, just about 2.5 inches high of the bull. this weekend i'll be load tuning all day.gun)

    Joel or Bernosky has mine too, but they must be using it for a door stop or something.

    260 nice choice btw.
