Have you found anyone with better prices on the tallys? Obviously no rush in ordering rings but I think that's what I'm going with

Unless you are talking about their tactical rings their lightweight one piece rings are on Amazon for under $50.

I asked earlier in the thread and Robert said mediums on a 30mm tube and 50mm objective. Some may take lows depending on brand of rings. Didnít say which ones.

Lol. I'm probably as excited about getting them delivered as everybody is about getting them. These things are going to be shooters!! All parts have been ordered, so the clock officially started earlier this week. Did get a bit of good news from Grayboe. They have added several new moulds for the Terrain since we last spoke when we were getting this thing going, so that should help speed things up as far as the original schedule goes. How much I don't know, but their capacity more than doubled.

I was thinking the same thing. I went 1 in 8 but having trouble locating Berger 140 VLD Hunting seems everybody I have checked is out of stock and back ordered.

I'm ready for this rifle, though I'm having some second thoughts about caliber. Maybe I should have gone with .25-06 AI rather than straight .25-06. I went back and forth on this, but decided on .25-06 since I want a 24" barrel and feel that the .25-06 would be better in a 26" barrel.

Thanks again to everybody. We're really proud and thankful to be a part of this TBH family. Can't wait to get these things in your hands and start reading the reports!


Wow didnít expect to see that many -08s up there! Thatís awesome. Should be some awesome shooters and reports to follow.

What?!?
No .270 or .30-06?!?
But they're the best rifle cartridges ever developed... there's no need for anything else.

Yes sir, I believe they will. I got my brass and dies a couple weeks ago, Midway had Lapua brass and Redding competition dies sets on sale.

I probably gonna get VX-5 HD Luepold, but I would like to see a Sig Whiskey5 before I buy anything.

I recently had the Sig Tango4. It was my first sig scope but really liked it. Great quality for the price. It is only a sample size of 1 but sill good.

Yes! When your favorite rifles go from $60 a box to $95 and you donít reload a creedmoor catches your attention.

As a matter of fact I bought a box of. 257 Weatherby that was $105 with tax the other day. I then went to Cabelas and they had .264 win mag nosler on sale so I bought 4 boxes.
