6mm Creedmoor almost done

Basically all I need to do is add a BiPod and a WMT muzzle brake.

I bought this for the sniper walk, up and down hills, weight is an important consideration. The current rifle I use for that is gaining weight for some reason. I swear it has put on 5 pounds in the last year.

Not perfect, needs some tinkering.

It's gaining weight because of all the added accesories.
Course i ended up building a 10lb Mauser...
Shoots wonderful, just not something i wanna run up and down a mountain with.
I am in earnest- I will not equivocate- I will not excuse-
I will not retreat a single inch- AND I WILL BE HEARD!

10 pounds I can live with. The one I used is a Winchester M70 Coyote barrelled to 284 Winchester with a heavy profile 27 inch barrel. That thing weighs in at 15-1/2 pounds. Great for F class but not for carrying.
