Been waiting years to get my xp built. Gotta make the move! Im getting old. laugh

Mcmillan stock is coming. Talked to my gunsmith today,who has a shop maybe 10 miles from me( don fraley/advanced weapons technology in russell ky ). he builds his own brake. So getting a brake and cap to cover threads when i dont want to brake it. Gonna do a shilen 8” twist .243 With heavy varmint taper....i guess its called.

He builds all kinds of stuff. I sat there and looked at an amazing rifle he had built. Made me want to go back to school n be a dr or lawyer. laugh cry

Gotta come up with half up front and balance upon completion. I think i can, i think i can O

So excited i had to tell somebody. Red Face

Congratulations on starting your new XP. Keep us informed and photos posted.
That should be a shooter. I'm leaning toward a .243 in my next build. I have a stock, barrel, and scope.

Thanks fellers!
Just seen i spelled brake el wrongo. I will edit to fix. I know the difference. Wink

Bipod is stolen off my factory ruger charger. I thought it would work for pics at minimum. Heck i might try it out on the bench.

If anyone has thoughts of how you would do different, or ideas for your own, i would like to hear.

Im pretty happy!....heavy on the pretty. Big Grin

Nope.....still droolin here. Aint that pitiful nuts ohboy

Every day at work, someone asks me if ive shot it yet. scratch head

I guess im just waiting until a really good time, when its not raining or muddy, i feel slightly energetic, or im off work with no other distractions. Im a moron like that. Pretty picky i guess.

I have cleaned the barrel and picked up 2 boxes of factory ammo in Federal 80gr and 100gr. Just today i found a lb of H4350. Local shop had been dry on that. Ill likely try that, maybe varget or H4895, or even IMR4350.

I must be patient and strong willed Blam......or just retarded.

Just wait till your barrel break in is over and you have some custom handloads to feed it. Great group either way with factory ammo.
