Yeah I was actually planning on an EH1 for the build but I like my MPA chassis so well that I decided to try it. Plus I like the idea of having a folding stock too.My experience with him also. I have not pulled the 'trigger' yet, but close. Still kicking the idea back and forth about a chassis for hunting although it has numerous advantages I believe over the more traditional design of a stock.
I would also entertain the March 5-42x56 that is coming out but I hate FFP on a hunting rifle. I like the extra magnification though since I plan to take this one out to 1500 plus. I also have a March 5-50 that has worked well on my 28 Nosler.This will be more of a hunting rifle for me so I am leaning towards the NF NX8 4-32 unless something comes out of the Shot Show...would like to see the NX8 in SFP, I think.
Nice! That is the one I am talking with Ryan about also. Was that 8.7 with the scope too?I could care less about anything tacticool or the way it looks. Its about how it feels and the adjustability of the chassis system for me. I built my first one two years ago and I absolutely love shooting with it but it's just too heavy to hunt with. I just got this one Saturday and the entire gun chassis included only weighs 8.7 lbs. Built by Ryan Pierce and chambered in 300 Norma Improved. I dont have the brass or bullets yet so I haven't shot it but it's -7 here anyway. Hopefully I can get out this weekend and see how she shoots.View attachment 170447
No I haven't weighed it with the scope yet. I am waiting until after shot show to buy a scope for it so its wearing my load development scope a March 10-60×56 high master for now. The 8.7 lbs it what Ryan said it weighs but I will check it with the scope later.Nice! That is the one I am talking with Ryan about also. Was that 8.7 with the scope too?
