large I think.
I'm looking forward to Monday and the pics
Rifle arrived today.
Very happy, immaculate work done by Desert Guns in Cromwell.
Mounted up the Sig Sauer Tango 6 5-30x56 mil/mil ffp. Unfortunately the 34mm Sig rings only come in one height which is far too high.
Might chase some Warne rings down, I have a THLR cheek-rest coming Friday to fix this.
Ladder loads for the 175 ELD-X all done.
Off to the range tomorrow with the LabRadar then will load up for this Saturday's Gunslinger Hunter shoot.
I will do my load testing with the 160 TMK and 162 ELD-X next week.
Only thing left on the rifle will be a cerakote job after this weekends shoot. Graphite black bolt and Tungsten everywhere else.

abit of topic but just wondering where you picked up that Sig Sauer scope? Looks great so far!
Nice one bro looks shit hot
Is that the sendero or sendero lite profile barrel?
Mate I've got some 34mm Warnes that would suit that down to a tee - PM the measurement you require and I can confirm the clearance on the set I have (unused) - $80 posted?
SR Marston in Christchurch are the importers. Reloaded have them too.
Sendero I think
Something I hadn't thought about with carbon barrels. No change in contour so you can't get the scope as low.
It changes [MENTION=3066]Shearer[/MENTION] just have rings that are too high
What does the prometheus refer to? Is it an action model?
Nah [MENTION=1608]Gibo[/MENTION], I name all my guns I am gonna keep forever.
Prometheus was the titan that stole fire from the gods and gave it to man (Greek Mythology), "Bringer of fire"
Yeah sorry mate. Wasn't talking about your rifle in particular (which is awesome by the way), just a general observation about barrels that have no taper from the chamber area.
Oh yup. Hes also a guy on facebook that does heaps of wildcats etc, think hes here too as swamplord. Wondered if there was a conection
Load development is underway

Gotta be happy with that
Pretty sure it will only get better as the barrel settles down eh...
Can't wait to see what the 162 ELD-X 160 TMK and Barnes bullets do...
I'm guessing 3000 fps :thumbsup:
