Looks super sweet. Does the scope mount cantilever off the back of the barrel block? Nightforce 8x32? What bullet and weight at about what speed will you use? How much does she weigh?

Attached is a closer view of the scope base and action.The Night Force is a 12-42x56.The rifle was throated for the Sierra 240gr MK's from what I have been told by the 1000yrd shooters is that I should find optimum performance at aroud 2850fps but every barrel has it's sweet spot I'll start there and work up..The rifle without optics runs just under 16 pounds.....I live in Eastern WA and this rifle was built for long range RockChuck shooting I went with the thirty call to cary distance a little better.
I hope I did'nt make a mistake because I dropped the 6.5-284 for this cartridge(.308 Baer)I'll soon find out...
