What distances will you be shooting?

Curious about the scope choice, do you have experience with it.

Max distances will be right around 1000.

Only experience I have with an LRP was 5 shots taken with a 308 to 600 at ASR.
A fellow shooter allowed me to try it as I was curious. Seemed par with the others in that price range. What I liked was the simplicity, along with the elevation turret. Eyebox was not that of the scopes in the 2k+ bracket, but again, it’s also less than half the cost.

Nice. Want to build a ORIGIN action. Are you using invisi-nut or 12 point?

Also, what was the lead time on the ridgeback?

Iím using an NSS nut. See pic. If you want to borrow the NSS tools to put yours together, u can use mine. Save yourself a couple hundred dollars.

No lead time on the stock. Red Hawk has them in stock and they run a combo deal with bottom metal. They are on occasion further discounted around holidays. I bedded the action to the Grayboe with Devcon. Was my first pass at bedding, and must say it was much easier than anticipated. Stock has a good feel to it, is it Manners feel, no, but very solid nonetheless (I sold a Manners T6A).

Have an appointment with Randall today for bolt tuning service. The bolt lift on the Bighorns is butter smooth, but the bump on close is abrupt.

Bolt manipulation is night and day difference after tuning service.

Thanks Randall!
