LongRangeRig finally up to snuff

I finally got the stock on the 270 AM up to par with the rest of the rifle. The original stock was a bit flimsey on the front end for the long heavy bbl and the general form of the stock wasn't right for prone/bipod shooting.

I designed my own stock and finally got it finished. Seeing as Memorial Day was looming I chose some appropriate camo colors.

The bipod will be finished shortly then we'll go back to some long range rock bustin'

It does. All of that was worked out prior to redoing the stock.

195 gr .277 Wildcat bc ~.8+ @ 3050MV.

19 MOA drop @ 1000 from 100 yd zero.

Sounds like the local 'yotes and chucks have some serious concerns.
