    This is the way i picked it up. It a model 116 synthic stainless with a 3-9 weaver scope. I have not shot it yet and i don't no how much it was shot before me.
    In the new year I will take it to the range with a few boxes of factory ammo and record the results. Over the next year we will torure test the rifle and work up hand loads maybe add a chassis to the mix. Adventuraly I'll rebarrel it and keep up with the shooting.

    Oh yeah, the ol 30-06... my long range platform is in 30-06, I feel like it's a good mix between .308 and .300wm. It offers good barrel life too.

    Too bad it has the bottom bolt release. No trigger options.

    So what upgrades should I do. I was thinking scope and mounts first, this is going to be on the cheap. I found a 1 piece 20MOA base and rings on amazon make by weaver. I can order a primary arm scope here in canada fairly cheap as well. After that I tinks will move on to a chassis probably from MDT Lss-xl unless I can find something else.
    As for the trigger will leave that for now.
    Today all go pick up 3 diffent boxes of factory ammo.
