Misty, is that a Shawn Carlock adjustable cheek piece/comb or did you source it elsewhere or even make it your self? How do you find it? does it stay put once set? is it comfortable?


They comes as optional extra on the MacMillian stock.

Yep thats right Battson...
Its very comfortable and just the right shape. It can be adjuted up and down a fair way and id say it'd take a lot to move it once the screws are tight.

I put a Shawn Carlock adjustable cheekpiece on my Sendero, it makes all the difference and allows a good cheek weld which is hard to get with any scope much over 40mm objective.

Accuracy International AICS 1.5
Going to have a  Rem 700 Tactical in 308 fitted for now.. once I've run the barrel out on that, will rebarrel in 260.
Thinking on another one in LA, 300WM or RUM possibly.. depends on how much I blow on Optics lol  Grin

This is the latest for me, a bit of payback for the long hours I am doing at the moment Grin



It is in 300WM at the moment but the reamer has been ordered to take it to 300RUM Cool If they had a 300RUM in stock I would have grabbed it but reaming it I will get a chamber that suits the dies better and throat length to suit the pills I will shoot Cheesy Trigger was better than expected and easier to lighten than I was led to beleave, even has a half bolt from factory (no need to mod this one)



Nice looking action to, The stock is good and firm to with its ali block. I will use it in 300WM untill the reamer arrives then it will get its ream & brake Wink

the scope is the 4.5-14 grand slam with 30 thou of tilt to give me 36 moa of adjustment up, I can give it 10 more thou if needed but will try that to start with. I may change the scope later but it is a good start Wink The brake is going to be fitted by HRE & it is supposed to be a muffled brake, It's supposed to be a bit quieter than without it and of corse reduce recoil Cheesy I thought about a can but its already long enough and the brake is ment to be very lite.

I am looking forward to getting that done Smiley

Awesome rifle for the money I reckon. Very accurate, last trip out took about 10 rabbits in a row from 10 shots between 250m and 330m, using handloads with 40gr vmax's. Nice compact action and awesome trigger, either set or unset (especially since I readjusted it recently). Not too heavy and stock is very stiff (not having the problems the guys are having with the walnut stocks). Supressor is a great addition, three of the rabbits above were sitting in a group at 255m, and each remaining rabbit sat there wondering what had happened to its mate(s) until it met the same fate... Grin
