at the local range when they opened, set up targets, got guns ready and had a fantastic morning burning powder. Just my third time to shoot since the surgery back in July and I was pleased with the results. brought three of my Steve Roe built XP's:
6.5 creedmoor, 6.5x284 Lapua & the 6.5 WSM. I had worked up the loads for the WSM & the 6.5x284 a couple of weeks ago and needed to get them zeroed. all went well and "boy" do these guns shoot!! Steve does an excellent job on his builds. thx again Steve

Nice shooting. Have you chrono'd your wsm?

I bet it feels good to get out of the house. Been laid up for a couple weeks now, wish I could get out and do something...

I dug around in your post history and found the post back in June on your two new additions. Is the WSM the blue and black stocked McM? If that beauty shoots that well, you sir have won SP Big Grin

Greetings Tom!

WOW! That's getting it done. Great bag work, sir. I'm really glad to see you back in action shooting. I've thought about you often and was glad to see that you're out shooting again. Another thing - It is a pleasure to have you as a customer, as a friend, and shooting AMAC guns. You do a 'smith proud!

On a side note, we are in the early stages (land clearing) of building a larger Apache facility for 2016. I have the property and we are going to have a new building to move into mid year next year. I cannot wait - I need the space!

Happy Thanksgiving,

Great shooting,Tom. Glad to hear you are back to shooting. I would be too,if I could stay away from the hospital. 2015 isn't going down as a banner year for me.
