    Great rifle IKIC, I bet you're thrilled to be putting rounds down range with it. It might not be my first choice for a sheep or goat hunt, unless my son carried it for me, but it should be perfect for everything else up here! Now you need to come up and nail a big bull moose with it!

    [QUOTE=Ikeepitcold;102539]Snowy Mountain builds their own actions but it's very similar to Remington. Barrel is a Match Grade. Ya it's freakin heavy I'm guessing 13lbs. I'll weight it but hope it will feel lighter packing it if I think it weights lighter then it does. Lol. I'll let you know the weight.[/QU

    I will have to look into that company at there stuff, is that the first action of there's you have used? Very nice looking gun.

    Nice looking gun! I have Sawtooth Rifles doing mine now and it will be done in 3 weeks. They are adding a Brux barrel as well as a muzzle break and other work. I have an H.S precision stock for mine. Nice build and happy hunting.

    I agree. So to add I sent my rifle to 406 Percision to do a full work up on the scope mounting, charts with drop, elevation, altitude, and wind out to 1500 yards. The guys at SMR sujest end that I use their service to get my rifle shooting sub MOA. I supplied two boxes of Nosler trophy grade ammo in 180 gr. I would be happy to out to 800 or so like I do with my current rifles for target shooting but heck 1500 will be fun on the range. I just hope I can do the gun justice and hit the steel that far.

    That's a long ways but that gun is totally capable of it and since your into longrange shooting and have practiced out to 800 you understand ballistics all you need to do is practice. Getting your elevation isn't the hard thing it's dealing with the wind is what I hate but practice makes perfect. Have fun and let us know how it goes.
