Well its been several months of progress but I think she's all done. All I gotta do now is go and break the barrel in and sight in the glass. I went with the heavy barrel (24") to reach out a little further. That in turn forced me to go with a magpul prs stock. Magpul trigger guard (cold weather coyote hunting gloves should fit nice). Weaver tactical scope 50 MOA adjustable. 6 screw rings on a picatunny riser.

And - just thought I'd throw the good old 308 in the pic too. Also 24" barrel with a leupold mark 4 on it.

Well... Took her to the range today for the first time, she shot really good, I'm happy with it. Started at the 50 yard line just to see where i was on the paper (first shot was about 1.5 feet low) turned the turret about the full turns and only about an inch off from there. Ended up putting about 5 boxes of ammo down range, good day. At 100 yards I'm about 2 inches high, good enough.

Went to Bass Pro Shop in Manteca the other day to look into getting a set of shooting sticks (Bi ~ not the mono stick). They're like $80 for a half good set. I don't see why, they're aluminum poles with a split at the top. Not paying that much for them. So then i stopped at lowes on the way home (keep in mind that i only want these for predator hunting ...sitting position... got two wooden dowels drilled some holes about an inch from the top (cut probably 5 inches off both of them) drilled some holes and ran 550 cord through them back to itself with about 4 inches of space between the top of dowels. I'll tell you what, for spending $6 at lowes, I'll give this a shot. bad thing is they are only one stationary heighth.

Cut them for sitting height and then spend another $6 and cut those for prone height, still money ahead.

Can see myself walking around a field with 25 sticks hanging around me. That'd be awesome. :-)
