Not one round down the tube yet. Got the stock last night and hand sanded the channel to take the bigger barrel. My other DIY shot in the .3s.

Hoping to get .5 without bedding it. My wood stock 110 is unbedded and shots around there or better.

The AT's are purty square on toppa the wrist and the acute angles are peculiar. Couldn't stand it and hadta recontour ergo's there,which is no big deal and a fast/easy improvement. They are not so hot at felt recoil management either,due the obtuse ergo's.

Have broken to many LW's and like lotsa things,recent Production pales to earlier versions in relative metallurgy. I've all but abandoned 'em,after having 'em on multiple dozens of rifles. Looks like a 10x Bushy? A guy could do worst,but parallax adjustment is near mandatory at 10x.

I love Jered,but HATE Loudeners and would haveta' pitch it offa cliff,with all the others.(grin)

Salvage COAL typically do nice things in Kreedmire,even with the generous SALAMI throating,which Shilen undoubtedly threw at you.

147's or bust,for me...............
