    Just got this one back and I’m loving it. I went back and forth for way to long between the PRC and WSM. Ultimately the WSM won out because of ammo availability and component crossover. My next is going to be a clone except in 308 and probably 18”.

    I figure the 308 will be a 0-400yd and the WSM will be a good follow up.

    Chad over at LRI did the work and it’s amazing. Accurized the action and spun on a new 24” Proof Carbon sendero lite. It’s sitting in a McMillan HTG with edge-fill and a adjustable cheek piece. It’s balance is right behind the recoil lug without the suppressor and just in front of it with it attached.

    So far I’ve tried factory Federal 200gr TLR ammo and it is grouping around 1/2”. Which is about as good as I can shoot using a bipod and a 2-10x scope.

    I have to say I would use LRI again in a heartbeat. All the work is perfect and it was less then a 3 week turn around.

    Very nice, congrats. I love seeing someone put a good Model 70 action to good use.

    Yeah. It was pretty trashed since I’ve last been up there a couple weeks ago. The police usually bring the inmates up to “help” clean when needed.

    How much POI shift are you getting with that suppressor on/off?

    I went with the 6.5 PRC and a sendero Proof. Thought I wanted the sendero light, but Proof convinced me to go with the full profile for rigidity. We'll see how it goes when the ARC nucleus gets in.

    I don’t know thos were rounds 3,4, and 5. I don’t really intend to shoot without the can. I’ll try without the can next time up.

    I know it’s apple to oranges but the CA with a slightly heavier contour is 3moa straight down between the break and suppressor.
