hopefully I get the first few rounds down her this weekend...... if she gets anything north of 2700fps w/ those bergers it will be tough for me to hold on to my 308.......

Based on everything I've seen I'd have to agree with that statement.

Good looking rifle, congrats.

Awesome rifle. I have really wanted to build one on a surgeon. They were non existing when I built my rifle. But now with the new actions that came out this year I can't make up my mind. I think the new gap temptest looks interesting.

cheers

Let me know what you think once you run those bergers. Went together really nice. Not in love with the way surgeon does their extractor, and bolt assy but should be a solid shooter.

The Teptest and new Mausingfield both have my eye for a build.

2700 with 168gr should work if not you will be really close.
