    Alright here is my latest addition to the family. I never had a precision rifle so i had to go all out on this one.

    Full custom GA Precision .308
    26" Match Grade Mike Rock 5R fluted Barrel with Badger muzzle brake
    Accuracy International 1.5 Chassis
    2# custom trigger
    Harris bipod
    Nightforce NXS 5.5-22X50 with ZERO Stop
    Action, action threads, and action lugs are completely trued
    Bolt face and lugs are trued
    Chamber is cut to true minimum specifications

    I will be taking it out this weekend to brake in the barrel and do some 200yrd shooting. I will be taking the Magpul Long Range Precision class which is 3 day class with Chris Costa.

    If you can afford the house, the rifle is easy! I'm so jealous. Weren't you tempted to get a caliber that is...............interesting? And are you getting a can?

    Well this is my first precision rifle so i wanted to go with the most common sniping round. Also the ammo is very reasonable compared to a 300wm or .338 etc etc. I am going to try the Badger brake which is supposed to be very good. But knowing myself i know i am gonna end up with a can:)

    Nice rifle, and don't let anyone give you any crap about going with a .308 either. My SSG 69 loves 175gr Matchkings, although I hand load to save money.

    You will also love your Nightforce, I have a 3.5-15X50 mounted on the SSG and it's been great. I wish mine had the zero stop, but it doesn't so I have to be mindful of that.

    My buddy has a similar rifle from GA and we shot it at a match this weekend at 300 yards. My group was 4 inches with the flyers, and 3 inches without.
    I scored a 195 out of 200 with 15 10's and 7 X's. He uses 169 grain Federal Gold Metal so give it a try. I love that rifle and I'll be selling some of my gear to get one. We were shooting prone, so I'm betting that off a bench the groups could have been smaller.

    Good luck and shoot safe.
