I would be interested in some details of the build.
Some of you still suprise me at where we have gone with SP's. Twenty five plus years ago I thought IHMSA was a big deal, and jumped in. That was and still is a challenge. The technology has come a longggg way since then.
In some of Don Bowers writings he wanted handgun silhouette to be shot at rifle distances off the bench. I think if that had come to be, we may have had more 500 yard ranges in existence today. Though the two hundred was hard enough to pull off for most.

Good luck to you. Make at least a few of the rifle guys cry laugh

Educate me on the scope base, is that windage?
Knob on the side of the grip, to get it flush on the bags or a bit of elevation?

G whiz, it's a Contender or a G2, never was a G One!

ARS Chassis, McGowen 1-8 twist barrel, Area 419 brake, Savage Dual Port Target Action, Ivey adjustable 175-MOA Mount and NF 15-55x52 Competition. The knob on the side of the grip is a lock for the internal grip mono-pod and the Ivey Mount is strictly elevation.

Wow. That's quite the build.

It's not a break, it's a brake, unless it's a break, then it's broke ;-)

Randy I really like the color combination you chose,it really sets things off. Is it my imagination or is that stock/chassis just a little different than all the others I have seen? Sure looks like it to me. Let us know if the graduations on the Ivey track true.

Randy: hope you got to shoot this beauty at Rayners this weekend even with the crappy weather predicted.
