    JP adjustable gas block, and midlength handguard, Young mfg bolt, ACE stock, lower and upper both made by MEGA. Leupold 3-9x50 (rings haven't arrived yet)
    Versa-pod bipod should be here Wednesday.

    Suppressor yet to come. I'm still trying to decide if I should build one or buy one.

    Some of my first loads. 200gr Sierra MK's, 220gr round noses, and some 150gr for supersonic action.
    and a .223 for comparison.

    .223 brass, which is one of the reasons I chose this caliber. I always seem to have more of it than I need.
    It can also be made from .221 fireball, but I don't know why you would, it's more expensive, and the neck will be a lot thinner.

    Should post that rifle pic on ARF and tell them the Leupold is attached with invisible stealth rings, cause that's what real operators use.

    Finally got the scope and bipod mounted. Pretty much had to redesign the bipod to get it mounted correctly.
    Gonna go sight it in tomorrow, and then shoot the biggest fucking deer you've ever seen on Saturday.

    Oh, and thanks to L4zy for the hookup :)

    Sad. Killing critters is one of life's joys.

    I'd offer to take you hunting, but I'd be afraid I'd have to kill you. On the other hand, I imagine you'd make an excellent rug.

    I've got a friend that is a taxidermist down in Mississippi. Last time I was down there shooting with them, we came up with the idea of having two squirrels doing it doggy style. I have the drawings all done up to make and animate the mount just haven't gotten time to make the mount yet, motion sensor on it and everything, billy the bass style.

    I'm in the market for a .300 whisper barrel it looks like. Where's the best place to look? JDJones?
