Grayboe website, lists the Terrain as having 3 flush cups, so assume 2 in back and 1 up front. Makes it nice to carry rifle flat against your back and bolt handle out away from you. You can also leave a bipod attached. The 2 sling studs underneath makes for a good place to mount a 1913 rail for an Atlas bipod.
Yes, it has cups front and back on the left side in addition to the cups under neith in the front.

Trigger Tech feels great during dry fire so canít wait to shoot it.
Nice looking rifle. Is that their GAP sponge camo?

I assume I am in the same 7-08 group as yíall. I got excited seeing a couple come out, but guess the wait will continue!

I dig that camo pattern. ARC M10 medium rings.

What range of power scope are you looking at : 4.5-14, 3-15, 3-18, 4-24 ?

If looking at comparable power range scopes, Iíd choose the vx5hd over the 6hd all day long. Better value and priced several hundred $ cheaper.

If wanting a FFP scope, I just bought a vx3i LRP 4.5-14x50mm , SF, target turret, TMOA reticle for $699. VERY pleased with this glass as it will be mounted on my new custom varmint rifle chambered in 220 Russian.

I don’t mind spending some coin on a scope but definitely not opposed to saving a bit either

dealer on Ebay had it for $775 and honored the 10% off with free shipping for Fathers day sale.

Ebay will run the 10% off specials every 3-4 months. Use the code and profit on lowest priced optics

Love that stock pattern!

The rifle I posted has VX-6 with 52mm in Med and itís on the verge of too tall. I would go lows on yours IMO

For what you describe I think the LRP Blake mentioned is a great option. We have 5 of them and they all have performed and tracked well out to 1100yds.
