Besides hitting your target accurately at 1K, what is your plan for this rifle? Benchrest, Prone, pseudo-tactical matches, walk around hunter, etc...? Do you reload or need an "off the shelf"...

Yes, it's the 2"x10" BAT action. I'm shooting the rifle as a .284 Shehane in that pic. It's throated for the 175-180gr. bullets. At 58#, it's very comfortable to shoot. I've also got two 6.5x.284...

Front rests

The R.W. Hart rest is similar to the Sinclair. I think the Sinclair looks a little nicer though.

Brakes

The JP is supposed to be a really effective brake, I've shot next to one and can attest to the fact that it's annoyingly loud.

Cases

As mentioned,

Pelican is very nice, easy to use latches.

Starlight makes a nice case as well.

Scopes

If I were in the market for an inexpensive scope right now, I'd be looking at the Weaver Nitrex line. Based on features and the current rebates ($50-100) being offered, it looks hard to beat.
