Default Just What I Need, Another Hobby

After 6 months of debating and 3 months to have it put together she arrived today. I got home from Texas and she was sitting in the shed. Im just getting into benchrest shooting and its very addictive and very very exspensive but a blast. Here are the specs.

Remington SS Trued Action by Mike Davis, super great guy and a hell of a smith, his rifles hold many records. http://www.daviscustomrifle.com/Home_Page.php

Bill Shehane ST-1000 stock inletted, block bedded and weighted by Tom Meredith, another great guy and one of the best in the stock business. http://www.tmss.net/home.html

Krieger chamber in 6BR @ 28" 1-8.75-8.3 Gain twist barrel.

Jewell Trigger set at 4oz.

Going to put on a boosted Weaver 60x scope on it now till I get my Leupold 45x

Weights in @ 17lbs

Going to finish putting her together and work up some loads this week and smoke test her next weekend. Im hooked on "Custom" riflles. I have 2 now, and have 2 in the works, a 30BR and a 6.5x47 lapua.

That is a sweet setup.

Is that a shooting rest under the front? Is it part of the stock or something you bought? I like all the adjustments on it!

I've never shot a gain twist rifle, but I'd imagine you get pretty good trajectories with high SD bullets. Do you have any other rifles like that? And do they perform better than standard twist?
