    I just picked this up and man I'm excited about it! Previous owner did some load development for it but it's only been hunted once. He shot it out to almost 1500 yards.

    Built by Vestals Custom Rifles (worth checking out on facebook)
    7 SAUM
    Lone Peak Razor Ti
    Proof Sendero Light 24" w/ removable break
    Timney Calvin Elite
    AG Composite Carbon Fiber Stock w/ Duracoat
    Non-HD VX6 3-18x50 (still have to order the exposed MOA turret for it)
    Weight as it sits is 8lbs on the dot!

    The first group pic was 5 175gr ABLR at 100 yds by the previous owner
    The second pic was 3 168 vld at 100 by the previous owner

    Can't wait to get out and shoot her!!

    Shot it for the first time. This is the first group after zero. Ignore the hashed holes. 168vld at 3053 ave for 6 shots.

    Nice looking set up! Im really liking the carbon barrel. Think on my next build im going to go that route for a lightweight hunting rifle.

    Very well thought out build, I like it.

    BTW, how are you liking the AG composites stock? I've been eyeing those myself.

    So far I like it. Light, stiff, and comfortable when shooting.
