    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.

    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?

    Interesting.
    Something I hadn't thought about with carbon barrels. No change in contour so you can't get the scope as low.

    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.

    Settled on 64 grains AR2217, CCI LRM primer and 175 ELD-X for this weekends shoot.

    3 shots into 7mm @ 2837fps SD 9fps, second group was 15mm.

    Pretty sure it will only get better as the barrel settles down eh...

    :thumbsup:

    Can't wait to see what the 162 ELD-X 160 TMK and Barnes bullets do...
