    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.

    Should be 2900+. 3k if I go H4350. That’s the 147’s
