Sweet, too bad you aren't closer, I would spot you a hundred LRP's to send those dudes down range. 168 SMK's one of my favs out to 600 yds.

Have fun, good luck finding the LRP's.

Nice! Looks like a 5r, but with bottom medal and adj. cheek riser. Is that part of the anniversary package?

Thanks! It is a 5R. No that was from another stock I had previously purchased (ironically a 5R take-off, haha) that had already been inletted for the bottom metal to accomodate a detachable box mag as well as having the kydex cheek riser installed.

I had no idea it was a 10th anniversary model until I saw it on the barrel. Not sure what's so special about it.

So now I have a brand new 5R stock, bottom metal, internal box mag, and action screws I need to sell, which sounds like a good idea to fund the glass for up top.

Nice find… in this market its cause for celebration…

It’s funny because I find reloading components when I am not looking for em… I walked into Turners to check out some guns on sale and I see a box of CCI SPP sitting on the shelf… I almost jumped over the counter to claim it before someone else did.

That was a good day since I’m almost out of SPP and gave up looking for them.

Nice find. I picked up a few hundred Berger VLDs because the cabelas I was at had not a single 308 projectile made by sierra or hornady, so hey atleast I am branching out.

haha that is true. if there's a positive thing about this drought it's that it's causing some of us to try new combinations and loads, which is really where the fun in reloading lies anyway.

then again, i'm pretty stocked up with all my other calibers. just need LRP to try 308.
