Nice looking rifle. Let us know how it shoots. Will it feed from the mag or will it be a single shot?

I hoping to get out and shoot it this weekend. I am adding a rat grips cheek weld to the stock and then i will be ready to go. She will be a single shot and I ordered a single shot ramp from SSS today. She should be a tack driver of i do my part. Ill post test pics when im done.

I finally got out and shot the RUM today. All I can say about this rifle is wow!! It took a few shots to get her to settle in and then she really tighten the groups up. I took my dad with me so he could help spot shots. We decided to have a shoot off and wouldn't you know it, the old man still has a dead eye :D My new rifle, and he out shoots me with it on our first trip out. The rifle is going to be a real shooter for sure. With 84 grs. of H-1000, it pushed the new 230 berger to 2980 fps. Im looking to get about 3100 and then I will call it good.
