I finally got my 6.5 Creedmoor in. My buddy Lonnie that owns Texas Custom Guns in Alvin did the barreled action for me. It is a 700 action, blueprinted, with a Shilen, 26", #7 taper, 1 in 8 barrel. He cerakoated it a very dark grey. I had the AI-AX chassis and the Vortex optic already. I put Badger rings and base on it, along with a Timney flat trigger. I absolutely cannot wait to see what it will do!! I asked that he engrave Psalm 23-4 (one of my daily, go-to verses) by the vent hole. Well, now my buddies have dubbed it the Shadow of Death (or SOD). It took a bit to get it, but it was worth the wait. Man, does this rifle make me smile!! I have no doubt that it'll shoot better than me. This one's going to be fun!!
