stock & receiver no barrel, so when done with stock (stain & oil rub) add new barrel, have to decide what caliber, bolt face is compatible with 22-250, 25-06, 6mm ect
used orbital sander in large areas, now down to hands, staying away from checkering, will post when done [Linked Image]

Take a Look at the 6mm Creedmoor caliber.
8-Twist , Will Shoot the 55 Grain up to the 105 Grain alittle faster than the 243 Winchester,
Speeds run about like the 243 Ackley , Without the Fireforming required for the 243Ackley.
Mine really likes the 85 grain Sierra Gamekings.
