Started life as Walmart 243 ADL.
Far cry from Walmart now....
Walmart action, no Gunsmithing on action yet.
Factory Remington 22" 7mm-08 cut to a modest 18" and threaded.
Boyd's At-One Thumbhole Stock, adjustable LOP and comb.
Talley 1 piece rings.
Burris Signature HD 2-10 scope, great push pull locking turrets and BDC on 10x for holds out to 400 yards.
Weight 8lbs 6oz

The load. Hornady 150gr ELD-X, velocity at testing 2700fps, 1 moa capable, G1 BC of .595(litz).

Lots of potential with round. Lots of room to grow. Could be the perfect east coast trekking rifle that can dial for east coast distances.

Wish I had this slayer at 9 years old.

Stock is the heaviest piece, but a compromise because it can grow with him. He's 9(be 10 late oct) 5ft and 100lb and shoots it fully collapsed now. I'm 6'2" and can shoot it comfortably fully extended.

And picked stock up for a song here on LRH!

Have sub moa load with varget... get same group and little more speed with Staball6.5 but ES not as good.
My 150s like RL-17. Been experimenting with RL-26 and seating long but haven't gained much. This is an AI btw
