Congrats! It looks good to me! I see dead animals in the future. :D

How do you like the SWFA scope? I have one on my .300 WSM and l am very pleased with it so far. I can't believe the quality/clarity of the glass.

Happy safe shooting/hunting.

I really like the scope. solid. easy to use. nice glass. I like the reticle.

I have the SWFA SS 3-15 version on another rifle, the Savage FCP HS 300 win mag.
other than a difference in power, it is really hard to tell the difference looking thru the scope. that 3-15 is a great scope, and at half the price!

Nice shooting out of that .338 Lapua. At the end of last year I bought a Savage FCP .300 WM. I like it, it is comfortable to shoot and fairly accurate with factory ammo. I have not loaded for it yet. I know if I had another super mag it would be the Savage FCP .338 Lapua. I have owned a SS HD 5-20 since they came out, bought it in the group buy over on S.H. The only thing I regret is that I did not buy 2 of them, I use mine for tac match run and gun, rough on it, never had an issue. It is very repeatable, always. gun)
