Hello all. Bit of a lurker but now I have a big bore I better put up some pics.
Rem700 action.
McMillan stock
Weighs 3.7kg empty so pretty light
Should be a hoot to shoot!

G'Day Fella's,

S13tsilvia, welcome on board and a nice looking rifle.
Rob De Vries does great work.

D'oh!

8.14 pounds - Ouch!
I would not be able to shoot it.
Appears to be a good foul weather gun if the steel is all
"rigg'd" up.
Hope you have fun with it.

I had a poorly headspaced 8lb .375 H&H once and it was brutal to shoot.

Good luck with this one.
