Thanx for sharing. I am building a .408 wildcat bench gun on the same action now. I hope I am as happy with the finished product as I am the action. They are great guys to work with.

Congrats SR. I too looked at those PGW demos and thought long and hard about it. It game down to one of those or the down payment on a house. Needless to say I closed last friday. Still want the gun, especially seeing your finished piece.

At least she drew the line after this one.

Matt, there's only one of the demo rifles left. They are getting ready to start a run of the Timberwolf actions real soon. I talked to Steve this afternoon about one for the 416PGW. So better make plans to get a home equity loan now

SR thats a nice setup, just wish it weight a little bit less with the scope. What rings did you use on the T-wolf? Also did you go with the mil-dot on both scopes?

for those interested here is the info on the rifles

rifle 1 spec's:

This was one of the demo rifles that were used in the Canadian military sniper trials, It has a new barrel though and has been refinished. The only signs that it has been used are on the stock. The unofficial word is these rifles gave the competing sniper systems a royal spanking during the trials.

Finish: polymax woodland

Thanks everyone! Glad to see you like my new toy.

Just got done shooting it at 1000 yards in a 15 MPH gusting winds and it performed quite well. I am still doing load development and I am going to be testing some RL25 soon. Those 300 grainers sure do buck the wind well!
