Default Long Range build: Photos galore

So I finally put my new baby together.

R700 Target Tactical .308
SWFA SS 5-20x50HD FFP
Harris BR bipod
Leupold 15MOA base
Burris Med rings

Also shown in the photo is my Snipers Hide Data Log Book.

I ordered and am just waiting on my Kestrel 4000 weather station, Blackhawk Drag Bag, and 200 rounds of Federal GM .308 168gr.

Got everything setup and ready to get started.



Rings lapped and ready for the scope install.



Now i'm making sure everything is level and ready to tighten.



Ta-da!

What a great Piece!! What was the final price tag for us that are still drooling?
Great job and I am also looking forward to the range report.

Scope is $1,500 (I got it for less though) and the rifle is $1,500 so it is just upwards of a $3k setup. Can't wait to take it to the range.
