I'm not interested in how or where a weapon is made, as long as it does the job it needs to do and I know how to use it.
As long as it fires ammunition and you've got lots of it, that's all you should be concerned about.

The bolt is sticking out the wrong side, Jay! Oh well, rarely do you get beauty and brains in the same package.

Careful, the Dems will want to ban bolt actions after looking at that beast!

You're correct. As a right-handed person, I do like a left-hand bolt action. But I'm not about to go buy another one when this one had been sitting around unused for 10+ years. :wink05:

2-groove? What bullet do you plan on using with this thing? Interested in seeing the performance.

168 or 175 gr. are the two weights I will be working up, most likely 168 as I know that will do what I want it to do.
Distance limited to 300 yards unless I drive for several hours so not concerned with ultra-long distance or dropping below supersonic at ≤ 300.

Won't get a chance to break in the barrel until mid July, unfortunately.
But plan on getting out with it a couple times a week through the rest of the summer.

Twist is 1-11.25
Perfect for 168 & 175 grn. bullets.
Not shot it yet, really busy with retirement & long vacations. :ROFLMAO:
Should get the first rounds downrange in late July.
