    Sweet looking stick. Be sure to give a range report.

    Just add token picture of one ragged hole, and a range report, and you will have won at the internet for a day...

    Is this primarily going to be a bench rifle, or do you have other plans fo rit?

    Thanks.

    It was built with intentions of being a precision setup. Plan to use it to its full potential to better my skill set. Shooting from the bench, prone, etc...

    Hopefully ill be able to post a full review soon.

    Nice build, but curious as to why you're using the lightweight JP buffer with the comp and, I assume, a standard BC.

    I tried this with a 6.5 Grendel and was constantly messing with the gas (had an adjustable GB) to slow the cyclic rate/recoil everytime I changed loads. Further, the auto carrier I was using beat the snot out of the JP buffer. Once I swapped the JP with a std rifle buffer I didn't have any issues.

    Thanks.

    From what i under stood the lighter buffer could be used (with all other standard components) to allow for less felt recoil, figured i'd try it as this was a precision build and should in turn allow for easier follow up shots.

    After a few hundred rounds, ive had no issues.

    With the weight of the riffle and the muzzle brake, its pretty easy to shoot.

    I'd be interested in hearing your prior experience with the platform, and shooting in general, and what led you to choose the parts that you did. Also interested to hear what kind of groups you're getting to include number of shots, number of groups, ammo used, and distance.
