Looks pretty awesome, I would love to do a build like this someday! Thanks for sharing.

I would like to do something like that some time. Really sounds like a great build. Can't wait till you finish her up. Be interested in seeing some pics.

Keep the up dates coming.

What chassis is that farmerboy? I am looking into all kinds of chassis right now for my 300 win mag.

I have looked at their carbon chassis. Yours looks a lot like the MDT HS3 which isn't out on the market yet but is another one I like.

I chose the element over both versions of the evolution chassis for two reasons...1st, I preferred this style more so over the tube handguard...2nd, wanted the weight over the carbon for recoil absorbing effect. ..

What was your reason for using the Nightforce rail and rings over the DNZ mount you had? I'm asking because I have a DNZ mount on my rem. 700 7mm mag.

Well I decided to pull the vortex pst off my savage 10 pc .308 and use on this rifle and it was sitting in the nightforce rings already...so I wasn't gonna let those nice rings sit unused so I bought the rail...that's the only reason.
