Guns looks great!
Two questions though.
First what is that bottom metal...looks to be a detachable magazine but not the AI type. I like that look.

Second question is how come you took the easy target when there was a pesky crow sitting out there begging to be shot. whistle

HAHA, Thats HS precision Metal I have got to where I really like it. It fits tight and is not noisy. and they pre shape it to the creedmoor caliber so the feed is nice. Think I know someone that needs it on their LH 22 creed

They're something to hunt all year long! Nice shot, that clearly worked well. You're pushing that 75 gr. A-max quite a bit faster than I am in a stardard 22-250 @ 3200 fps. I love that bullet! Flies great, and is obviously devastating on coyotes. You should see what it does to a prairie dog pup! grin

Take a 6.5 Creedmoor and neck it down for .224 inch bullets and you have a 22 Creedmoor. Much like the 22-243, 224 TTH, 22 Middlestad (sp), 223WSSM.....

Yes but is feeds and cycles better because of the case design and the longer neck allows for seating it out with more powder. And I take down 6mm factory brass to 22 in one step so you don't have to go down from the 6.5 creed making it pretty dang easy.

I saw on your old website that y'all are going to start selling custom ammo. Will you offer this chambering?
