    Looks like she's coming along nicely. Bet you can't wait to get her to the range and see how she shoots!

    Looks very nice. I am in the process of rebuilding an ole 5R. Sent the stock back to H.S. Precision for a new paint job and shorten the LOP. As soon as I return from this hunting trip, a new Bartlein barrel will be ordered and spun up to 6.5X47L. This is going to be a range rifle and maybe a whitetail kill stick.

    In my WM's I tend to stick with the 180-200, maybe 210 class bullets.

    In my Rum's 200-220gr. IF I were pushing 800-1,000yds regularly or farther I would probably go heavier but I like that combination for the best balance between flat shooting and energy at the ranges I'm most likely to be shooting.
