Negative. I figure with a 300WSM build I will be one of the last. Figure they will start on all the 6.5 builds at first.

Thanks for the info. I'm having one built as well. Said I never would but Robert talked me into it. I had plans of a 65x47 so speed wasn't the end all goal. I'm building a 22 suppressor ready rig and will be happy with anything around 2700 from a 140-147 boolet. The fact that Lapua is making brass for it was the kicker that put me over the edge.

I agree with the above, if you want to go faster buy a bigger gun.

I'll add this is the first set of seekins I've had. I looked at many. One said they didn't have to be lapped and I can't remember who. these had to be and it took a little more umph than usual. I guess it's the coating

Medium. Low would have worked if you wanted it lower. I spoke with talley and they recommended low fwiw

I tried some Burris lows. They might have been a tad better when set to 10+ power and throwing the rifle up and trying to acquire crosshairs fast. But the mediums seemed better below 10. I figure in a real hunt scenario and I was hurried in a shot it would be close and lower scope setting.

I received mine yesterday. It wasn't part of the group build but a barreled action in 6.5 manbun. I have a little stock work to do and will be taking chamber measurements tomorrow to start working up a load for ladder testing at 300 yards.

From what I can gather, doesn't look like Curtis has ever had a .308 bolt face long action for sale, other than maybe a demo model, looks like long action magnum actions were available March 1st, since mine was based on 280AI, I'm not expecting a call before August.

Anyway, carry on with the gun pern...

I wasn’t complaining, or at least didn’t mean to sound like it. As much as I would love to have my rifle tomorrow, rifle season is still like 5 months away so I’m good with waiting for now

Barrel is just .22 caliber, depending on twist probably not an issue but the reamer probably only hold up if that.
