I could not be more pleased with my new long range rig - a 280 Ackley Improved spec'd by JGFireman and smithed by ZG Customs:

Tikka Action
Bartlein 3b 5R 1:9 twist finished at 25" spiral fluted by Horizon Firearms
McMillan Game Scout in Desert Spectre
Cerakoted in Black Graphite
Tangent Theta 5-25x56 Professional Marksman 34mm Rifle Scope

We got a chance to air them out at our place in West Tex -- smoked two does at 240 yds and 330 yds -- bang-flop x2. Then tonight snake dumped a hog at 350 with his. Folded up and didn't take a single step. Berger 168s hit like a freaking sledgehammer.

How do you like the scope. I've heard great things about them. I always did like the premier.

Rifle looks great and that's some good shooting.

Very nice rig dude. Premiers are the tits. I really hate that I sold mine. I am shooting the 280 ackley improved bigger brother 7 Saum Ackley improved 23in barrel with 168 hunting classics at 3010. The bullet is devastating.
