Very nice! Like the laminated stock and that action is like silk. 😊

I've probably skipped a few or more but my latest is a Savage 112 Target Magnum in .338 Lapua Mag.

I put a 6-24 Vortex Viper PST on it I had in the scope drawer.

Broke the barrel in and started load development yesterday with H4831SC  and Sierra 250 SMKs

4 of the first five shots were touching and it looks like it's going to like 89.5 - 90.5 grains of powder.

Several 3 shot groups were close or touching.

Recoil is nowhere near what some would like you to believe. I shot it 40 times yesterday and couldn't tell this morning.

Is it me or does a message on a barrel really help?
I would think an accidental discharge, especially at a crowded range, would have me crawling into the nearest chipmunk hole and I most likely wouldn't reappear until February 2.
We already have background checks,  maybe the form should have some basic firearms safety questions!

Nice build Chaz!!!!  I've considered a 6XC for awhile.  Seemed pretty close to the CM so I went that route, but would be interested in your thoughts and results.

Dave, that 338 LM looks pretty nice.....great shooting.  Boy, that is a lot of powder to go thru.

Grant, one hole is very impressive.....great looking and great shooting rifle.  Well done !!

It consumes a lot. You wonder if the Chargemaster is ever going to get there.

There's not much difference the CM has a little more speed, but the XC will have a bit better barrel life. I hope. I'm very happy with my choice, this is my second XC.
This is a 4 shoot group from a seating depth test I did on the weekend, at 100yds.

Well my pride and joy has been FrankenCreed, but my "REAL"
pride and joy has been my Rock River EOP/5.56. It's still a bolt
gun although rotary.  :D  Gave it a new set of eye's. I pulled the
Bushy 6-24x50 FFP, and replaced it with the Bushy 4.5-30x50 SFP
I had on FrankenCreed. Frank's going to get a complete remake,
but more about that down the road. There is almost 2000 rounds
thru the Wilson Arm's barrel RRA uses. Still stacks em' in there
with that Israeli Mod-1, 77gr ammo.

Note.....This same rifle has always been my avatar.
