New addition to the family
« on: February 11, 2019, 11:37:46 AM »
This is my first of probably many customs  :chuckle:
264 win mag, 26" barrel,  bedded action, polished trigger set at 1lb6oz, Boyd's stock, bedded nightforce 20moa rail, harris bipod, topped with a Zeiss v4 6-24x50, I have a set of seekins precision matched 30mm rings and a 1" kickeez pad in the mail. Hopefully next week I'll get a load worked up for some 140gr Berger vlds. Thanks everyone for the advice, couldn't be happier with the rifle  :tup:

Sweet set up!  Youíre going to love hunting with that caliber. Iíve done a lot of work with the 264WM. 140VLD and H4831SC is a winning combo.

Send me a PM when you're ready to start loading and I'll share what worked and what didn't work for me.

Already shooting 1 moa looks like  :tup:.  I was out there Saturday but stayed home yesterday.  Next meeting is tomorrow at 630.  Need to be there early for joining though.  It'll probably be a full house with renewals.

Pretty gun. Congrats on your new kid.
