The scope is a Vortex 1-8. The only thing left is to blend the steel trigger guard and then Cerakote it and the comp matte black. The McMillan stock cost double what the rifle cost me, but wow what a difference. Worth every penny.
Looks great from here!..

Thanks,

Its not a matter of looks. The trigger guard is shaped for the factory stock contour. The McMillan is much flatter behind the trigger guard and left the guard proud of the stock about 1/8" and a pointy hook. Right on my shooting hand knuckle. You can imagine how that will feel (and probably draw blood) from recoil. Anyway, I just finished fixing it. Cold blued it temporarily while waiting for the Cerakote to arrive. Smooth as silk now. Going to shoot it later.

Built this on a Sako TRG-S M995 action in 7mm Rem Mag. Bartlein gain twist barrel, Manners stock, Tubbs heavy recoil lug, PTG (McMillan) bottom metal, etc. Had to make the rail for mounting the optic and the bolt handle.

It is a little known fact that Justin Beiber is a shooter.

Here he is shooting off the jersey barrier Sunday afternoon.



Ok, maybe not the real Justin Beiber...

Browning X Bolt McMillan Long Range Max

Finally got the scope mounted on this beast. I installed a Vortex PST Gen II 5 x 25 x 50. The rifle is chambered in 6.5 Creed. I'll get it bore sighted at the shop this week and hopefully get out with it soon. I ended up installing the 0 MOA rail and I'll see how that works. Man.....this is a bench only setup. Frickin thing must weigh 11 lbs.

I like the urban disco groove camo pattern. Let us know how you like the scope. I may have a use for one of those on one of my rifles.

Very nice. I bet it shoots real nice, especially when you find ammo it likes. Have you shot it yet? When my son bought his X Bolt he looked at the Max, but ultimately chose the Hells canyon speed because it was a little lighter. His sole purpose is for hunting. Heres a photo of his before a range trip. For Hunting he does not use the sunshade or bi-pod. It still weighs 9 pounds or so with the scope, also a Vortex. The stock so impressed me I was inspired to send my Savage to McMillan. Those stocks are superb.
