If I were the one building this rifle I would have already gotten bored and moved on to at least 3 different projects by now!

Not because I personally know you but because I've read enough of your posts, that's friggen funny as he11 AND probably very true, too. LOL

Sneak peek. Still waiting on the scope base and the go/no go gauges to arrive. Then some final fit and finishing

On the 7th month for this build - that always seems to be the magic number - almost there!   Usually done with no time left for load developnent before fall!   :chuckle:

Nicely done!
Only 2 defining forces sacrificed themselves for you:
The American Soldier and Jesus Christ. One died for your freedom, the other for your soul.

My rock,
He trains my hands for war and my fingers for battle.
Psalm 144.1
