Yup and not far from you.

I live in Richmond and hunt in hallettsville. I shoot to 600 at American shooting center just weet of Houston but do most of my load work at a small private range just south of El Campo. We only go to 300 but it's rarely crowded and convenient.
Oh nice. I’m in Edna. I know that hallettsville area pretty well, used to work in that area a lot.

Finding a place to shoot distance at is definitely tough. I have people that have land it’s possible on but not like I can just pick up and go whenever I like.

Hello everybody. New member here from South East Texas but I’ve lurked through this site for a couple of years now scavenging info on builds and calibers. Earlier this year I sold a couple of “pretty” Remington BDL rifles and scratched the cash together to build myself a “do all” hunting rig.

280ai
Defiance Tenacity
Mcmillan Hunter Stock
Bartlien 2B Barrel @ 24” 1 in 8.75 twist
Triggertech “Special”
Remington bottom metal
Wyatts Extended mag/follower.

I had originally planned to go with a slightly smaller Nightforce SHV scope but my local smith happened to have a very gently used 5-20x56 SHV at the time so I picked it up with a set of Larue QD rings.

Work was done by Crossroads Precision in Victoria. Russell is a great guy and was very helpful with the whole process.
Hopefully being here will encourage me to stretch it out a little.
Noice! Great choice of bore!
