    If he conquered his saddle rifle addiction in only 12 steps ? I'm impressed !

    Ready with a mag loaded with 15 rnds of 6.5 Creedmoor.



    Add a transport cover and she is just over 20lbs.



    - - - Updated - - -

    Getting there. 3 steps left to finish her up. Easy corrections for vertical stringing.

    1. Relieve handguard.
    2. Set barrel tensioner, now in neutral.
    3. Switch to handloads, currently bulk pack commercial.

    12 steps are extremely difficult and not for the meek. At least for me since the docs said NO STAIRS anymore.....lol

    Finished most of my tweaking on this rifle. Now have 160 rnds through her and she is starting to settle down. First photo is with handloads second is GMM. Scope settings were left the same for both targets.

    I didn't realize that Springfield has their own camo stocks. This one below is in Highlander Camo. They also make one in Sand/Black with a full length American Flag ! (I need to get out more)

    Guess I won't be buying anymore JAE Chassis. There is a notice on their website that they closed their doors and business yesterday. Sorry to see them go.
    These three will remain with my prized possessions.

    possible asset buy-out by SAI? IIRC SAI used them for their "Loaded" model.
