At least a 1/4. I could measure for you but if you've ordered both you'll be set.

The 6.5 CM, I almost got another 7mm-08 but the one I have is still a good shooter. I just keep it for a back up rifle.

Alright, time for another update!

Long actions w/mag bolt face - We received another shipment yesterday! It looks to be just enough to cover the remaining TBH builds. Started dropping those into production this morning.

Long actions w/standard bolt face - Finally got an update on those and it looks like they should be here by the end of next week.

Short action stocks - Grayboe delivered several of the missing ones on tuesday and the rest are coming.

Short actions - Still have not received the latest shipment, but we are still working through what we have at the moment.

So mostly positive news for the week. We have had one unexpected issue holding things up this week. The supplier for the pins in our bottom metal ran out of stock. They will be back in stock on 6/30 and shipping out to us at that point. What that means is that the S/A builds currently in production are going through the entire process, but are being held up at the end awaiting this part so we can install the bottom metal. We currently have 14 TBH builds sitting there awaiting this part before we can give you the call. More are being added to that pile daily. The good news is that we have them bedded, fitted and test fired ready to go the second they come in. It's probably going to look like Christmas morning in the picture thread when these pins come in. And I imagine our UPS guy is going to need a bigger truck that day.

Thanks,
Robert

Thanks for keeping us updated. Hoping one of those is mine but doubtful as I placed my order a few days prior to the deal ending.

It may well be, as we are building based on available parts. As an example, if the green stocks showed up before the brown stocks, the greens are running through first. We had a pretty solid production plan when this thing started, but that kind of got thrown out the window with some of the delayed delivery dates. We don't want to hold up any of them longer than necessary, so as the parts arrive, they get pushed through.

Iím guessing mine is one of those 14, since last Friday they said it was in production. I think like everyone else we just want to make sure they are built right and quality usually means time. Itíll be ready when itís ready is my thought, and Iíll be like a fat kid on cake when I get the call!!

Got a call on my Kryptek mountain rifle. They suggested that the copper pearl cerakote was going to look "blingy" due to the glittery appearance. The website pics didn't represent it well.




Decided to go with midnight bronze for a more subdued look.



Waiting on my bottom plate to come in and she will be done.

Just take a really long lunch! Glad you decided to go the other direction on the color. It's going to look sweet. The copper pearl looked awesome back when we first developed it. Unfortunately, we ran out of that pearl additive and have not been able to replicate it with any other brand or batch. It seems to "sparkle" more than the other stuff did. Reminds me of a bass boat from the 80's

Ok, another update. A partial shipment for the bottom metal arrived late this morning. We have been assembling them and making calls since right after lunch. Should have more than 10 of them completed by end of day and about that many completed again tomorrow. Looking like next Tuesday before we receive the remaining parts for the rest of them. I am awaiting a current status report on the standard long actions and short magnums. I'll post when I get a reply. I do know for a fact that the bolts are completed and it is the action bodies that are the hold up. I'll post as soon as I know more.

Thanks,
Robert

I should have just taken out the trash like I was told.
