    The New 7mm08

    I recently had this 7mm08 built. I finally got the chance to take it to the range and break in the barrel!! Big thanks go out to Abe ( tui_man2) and Jason with senator stocks for all their hard work!! The rifle turned out better then i was expecting!!! Now its time to start load developing and get out and shoot some paper at long range!!

    Nice mate
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    He doesn't need a comb at all. He has got fuck all hair
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I am going to have an adjustable saddle cheek piece available soon that will be able to be added if needed

    Catch 22 isn't it; if you make a high comb stock for correct cheek weld, then you can't insert a cleaning rod or remove the bolt. Adjustable/removable is the only way to go.

    Hi Jason,
    What would be the price for such a stock with a basic inlet for a Remington or an howa?
    Thanks.
