    Dear Sirs and Ladies, November, 2006

We are requiring a 50% down payment to reserve one or more actions and estimate 16- 20 weeks (depending on quantity of run) to complete the first production run.

    Pricing:
    Repeater - Includes Surgeon bottom metal and 1, 5 round A.I. magazine. $1685.
    Single shot - $ 1350.

    FEATURES
    Integrally machined 1913 mil spec base with a fixed cant of 30 MOA.

    Surgeon Target bolt knob Blank (non drilled) trigger housings $ 45.00

    NOTE:
    Due to the increased thread diameter we recommend a minimum barrel breech diameter of 1.350 for good shoulder contact and rigidity.
    McMillan Fiberglass Stocks will have the new action and bottom metal inlet programs available for the A series and some target/competition stocks. This action will NOT be compatible with the AICS series stocks due to the increased length.

    Best 100yd group shot to date. Using factory 250 Lapua ammo



    We took the rifle to NE TX Saturday. Shot it at 1000 with a wind switch the 5 shot group was about 4" tall and about a foot wide.
    We were taking the target back to 1500 and we got to thinking 260 more would be 1 mile. So at 1 mile with a very light wind the 5 shot group was about 12-14" tall and about 3-1/2ft wide.

    Thanks

    That rifle kinda reminds me of the M85.

    Guys I didn't get to shoot it but I did fondle that rifle at this years ASC match when my team mate Tony brought it out to show off. The pictures don't do it justice. That action is amazing. Smooth and the mags click in very solid. Anyone building a 338 or another magnum rifle this is the action to use.

    That's .4 at a thousand not accounting for random wind that's hard to account for to begin with... That's a good rifle.

    Amen to that. I'm still working on rounding up the cash for one, but I will have one eventually.
    Recognize what is in your sight, and that which is hidden from you will become plain to you.
