Trued left-hand SA Remington 700.
7.5 Twist Proof Research carbon fiber barrel, McMillan A-5 stock, Seekins bottom metal, Jewel trigger. Mac's Gunworks/Chuck McIntosh did all the work and the muzzle brake is his as well.
Chambering is the 6XC.
Looking forward to load development.

    Looks good.

    Really like the stock coloration, though we've had issues with McMillan stocks in the past and currently.

    Both issues were/are with the adjustable cheek piece. The one on the Tac-50 sheared off twice.

    One on a current drops down periodically when the screws come loose unexpectedly. Happened three times in one morning last week.

    Has this happened with lower recoiling or smaller cartridges?

    Very nice!
    Knowledge is essential to living freely and fully; understanding gives knowledge purpose and strength; wisdom is combining the two and applying them appropriately in words and actions.

    The current one is a 308 Winchester.

    Nice :guns: :guns:

    Question: Is it as difficult for a Righty to shoot a Lefty bolt gun that it is the other way around for Southpaws?

    Really like the pistol stock.
