    Hey Ric,
    How did you take those pic's? They are amazingly clear.
    Also, how did you post them? I have a digital camera and would like to put a few pics on here!
    Thanks.

    I use the ImageEvent site on the net.. $25 a year for them to host and I have had NO problems ever... takes a bit of reading to get the posting thing down but once you understand it no sweat....

    I just put my digital camer up to the scope and got a good site picture focused and shot.. worked pretty well huh....

    ;-)

    photobucket.com is free /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Ric--im guessing your camers was set on macro mode?

    I had to set it on macro (since you are actually focusing on the imag projected 3" behind the scope)

    got some nice thru shot from my 50x, and a 45x swaro spotter at williamsport--will try to remember to put them up here or SH.

    cheers,
    JB

    Re: pics of my rifle

    The rifle is a blueprinted Rem 700 with a solid bottom in an H.S. Precision Sendero stock that I modified. I put 2 pounds of wheel weights around the forend, then laid up long strand fiberglass body putty over a nylon mesh grid for curing. Then I laid 16 more layers of body putty up and sanded down to a smooth level layer. Then I took 2 layers of fine putty over that to fill in pin holes. Then I had a friend of mine spray it with 3 coats of car primer, then 5 coats of pearl white car paint, then several coats of a custom metallic flake blue, followed by 3 coats of clearcoat. It took about 35 hours for my part, and about 12 hours for my painter!
    The barrel is a 30 1/2" Pac nor 5 groove .264" bore and it measures .858" at the muzzle. The brake is a custom one my gunsmith builds. The trigger is a 4 oz. Jewell, and the bases are 20 minute tapered Ken Farrell's. The rings are Burris pos-aligns with 10 minute inserts in them. The scope is a Leupold/premier 14.5-35x50. I have a Sinclair bubble level on the top.
    It shoots the Berger 140 VLD at 3100 with standard deviation of 4 or 5 usually. It has printed 1/4" groups at 100 yards, 2" at 600, 5" at 1000, 12" at 1500, and a 28"x14.5" group at 1 mile! It is currently the most accurate gun I own. I am building three new guns right now though that should rival it!

    Jb1000br,
    No offense taken. Different brakes for different folks. I like my brake becuase it IS different. Those $30 brakes look exactly like everybody else's boring old brakes. Good price for them though! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
    My brake is a thread on one that has no seam and has an inner chamber that has been harmonized for my individual bullet/barrel combo. It is very elaborate on the inside, but I can't get a pic of that. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif
