Default Iím happy with this one

Picked up my New Christensen Ridgeline chambered in 6.5x284 Norma. On top I put the new Nikon black X1000 scope. I really like the way it turned out. I hope you enjoy.

Nice. I'm wanting a 28 nosler. Looking hard at the Ridgeline since I can't afford the one I want.

Yes sir it is. If you want to come shoot it just let me know. I have a range just minutes from the house.

That's a fine looking rifle.

I just picked up a 6.5x284 and am looking forward to some load tuning with it after season. I shot just a few rounds through it and was very impressed.

I bought a savage last month in the same caliber and shot a buck and a fox with it. I was very pleased with it. Thatís what I bought this one.

It's about a mile from my house also. I live on adlong school rd. Figured you lived in lake shadows by your avatar pic. How do you like the scope? I'm wanting to get one.

I am at the end of Runneburg so I cut across the grass farm and Iím there. I really like the scope so far. I gave a review on my updated post about the gun and scope. You ever want to go shoot give me a holler
