Very nice indeed!! Please share muzzle velocity and bullet choice once you get it to the range. I am interested in a similar build but would like to know what to expect performance wise before I commit. Thanks in advance!

Indeed, very nice! 6.7 lbs, even nicer for climbing steeps and over fallen trees. And if it's only for 500 yards, you can put a lighter scope on it. No reason for a 30x 40 oz scope unless you prefer one.

What MV are you expecting to get out of this? I like the compact rig. I’m getting ready to build a 6.5 PRC for Coues deer hunting in AZ. I just finished a 300 PRC.

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
