    Nate is building me a 260, the rifle colors are the same as yours and the stock is an A3. My rifle should look almost look the same as yours, just a tad smaller. I'll can't wait to get her. I am going to shoot tactical competition with it.

    That should be a awesome rig. I can't say enought about Nates workmanship and attitude, Great guy. My 6.5-.284 shoots 3 into the .30s once I upgrade optics and get a jewel trigger in it I think it will hold that for five shots. Love that .264 cal. not much recoil and awesome ballistics. I Wish I had went with the A3-5 with adjustable cheek peice built in Though.

    Nate suggested I go with the exact stock/Adj set up that you mentioned. I chose the desert camo color, same as the one you picked. The metal will be Coyote Tan.

    Yea, I think that stock is one of the nicest of mcmillans. I'm going to have Nate put a saddle cheek peice on my 7mm sometime soon. I had thrown around putting the HTG with the cheek peice on my 6.5. Nate built it for another guy and I got it from him with a real nice peice of wood that Nate bedded and I finished but wood and I don't get along. Had I built the rifle it would of worn a HTG its more of a hunting weight rifle. I actually just got the bid on a HS sporter stock on ebay for $167 I'll try that out for now.
