Slung a few rounds down range with my friends 6.5 today.
Here is my first 2 round group at 100 yards off sand bags.

Here is the rifle.

Image

Factory barrel, Timney trigger, Stocky Stocks laminate thumb hole and a Bushnell elite 3200 10x.
Damn these rifles will shoot.

the rounds hit high because he has a 200 yard zero.

Well I managed to do a bit more work on mine. A friend took pitty on me and finished my stock. :mrgreen:

I still have to do some in letting, bed the action then refinish the metal with flat back gun kote.
I bobbed the safety on it in anticipation of installing a timney trigger. I didn't want the safety popping up and dinging the scope.

Here is a pic of what it looks like now.

Here is the bobbed safety. I still have to smooth it up a bit more before I gun kote it.

try to deal with timney directly rather than a dealer they will take good care of you,they will make sure you get the proper trigger and they shipped the trigger kit right to my door.
