I put this baby together earlier this year. It is a Remington 700 action and factory barrel in .35 Whelen. Did the finish myself and bedded it into an HS Precision stock. Rings are Talley one piece aluminum and the scope is a Leupold VX-III 1.75-6x32. Weighs in at a trim 7.5 lbs. Whenever you put a rifle together there is always that nagging feeling in the back of your head... Will it shoot? Well today the trip to the range proved that it will. Took 4 shots to get it sighted in and this is the first group I shoot out of the gun. Ignore the .223 hole to the right of the group I shot at the wrong dot later on. Anyway that is a 1" dot on the picture and the group was shot with factory Remington 200 Gr. PSP Core-Lokt ammo. I like this gun!!!
