Buffalobob,
The reamer I borrowed needs to have the throat lengthened to seat bullets way out so not to use powder space. It is my hope 208 gr. Hornady A-maxes
will shoot really well,If not 200 gr,Nosler AB's are my second choice.
By the way it it chambered,did it this afternoon, now for the stock work,
need to open up stocks barrel channel,Rem varmint is too narrow!

Wayne,

Looking forwad to some pics.

Man it sure would be nice to have a lathe in the garage. I'd pick one up but it would never fit in the one room shack I'd be living in after the divorce.:D

Winmagnum,
Nice thing about a one room shack, no room for trouble makers!
Probably not going to see pictures as I am computer stupid, if I was better
at this computer I'd have pics all over the place of my cabin I built this fall!

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen


Nightforce ATACR Scope Review
By Jeff Brozovich

The new NightForce ATACR is for sure a top choice for any long range shooter. Read More


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
