If you can put your phone on slomo video its easy to tune brake.   Iíd start with back 2 open and keep opening until you detect any initial downward movement - you have to look really really close.

Looks like you've got a really good general purpose hunting set up there.  Should serve you very well.  Get in touch with me if you need any help dialing it in.

Iím not sure what youíre talking about.

Yes this build will be used for hunting only. Iíll work up a few loads and see what it likes. Thanks for the offer.

The wait is finally over. Picked it up the other day from Defensive Edge. Now the work really begins.

Looks great!  Did Shawn shoot it?  Usually he shoots everything before you pick it up.

Not that I know of. Didn't feel like getting charged for having my scope mounted so I didn't leave it there.

I would hope he tested it out, seems standard when having one built.

Oops thought you had the Generation 3 brake with the tuneable ports, just noticed it was the Gen 2 that doesn't have em.  .

Yeah I didnít think to ask him at all. It just said cleaned on the tag when I picked it up.

Sometimes some shootem sometimes some don't.   If its a caliber a smith is familiar with and loads for they probably will shoot it.  If not why bother unless its a service you have paid for and they built into the price?   What will shooting a random factory load or random handload for that matter tell you other than its safe to shoot and they know that already. 

I know how much time and ammo it takes to develop an accurate load - I wouldn't want to pay gunsmith wages for that - but if they have a pet load I will be happy to start with it.

I'm not too worried if Shawn test shot the rifle or not. I didn't want to pay money for things that I could do myself ie mounting the scope and load development. I'm pretty sure it'll shoot as good as it looks. The finished work is excellent.

Lol tell me about it.

 I've been busy chasing Elk in Idaho with the dang bow. Too bad it's not rifle season or I would have been tagged out already.  :bash:

Well first few problems. One I can't even feed the internal magazine from the top. Two I can't even close the bolt on factory 150gr Hornady and Winchester 180gr. It was throated for Berger 215gr. Shouldn't I still be able to shoot factory ammo from this thing? :dunno:

I would think so! Go back to your gunsmith and explain.

I've tried calling twice now but it just goes to the busy tone. I measured the throat with some 185gr Berger VLD hunting and got a max CBTO of 2.148" the max COAL was something around 2.834" with the 185gr Bergers.

I would think all should fit , but maybe it was set up for the exact bullet you told him. I had Ron Smith build a barrel for a 338 Lapua and he wanted to know the bullet I was going to shoot. Both weight and length. Another smith cut the chamber though and I just used factory specs for the loaded ammo. Will the shells slide into the chamber at all?

Theyíll slide in but the bolt wonít close. We throated for 215 knowing I will be running 185ís.
