Been waiting for a reply too! I have one with the McM stock in 6.5 CM, but have not hand loaded for it yet. It shoots the 143 ELD X factory loads @ 2655 fps and around 3/4" MOA at 100 yards. Have shot it at steel out to 550. Fun rifle.

Shot a buddy of mine's yesterday. 143gr. Precision Hunter factory loads averaged 2641 fps at Sea Level. Accuracy was good, nothing exceptional (~1-1.5 MOA).

I've got the McMillan stocked version in 28 Nosler. First load was 180 eld at 3200 with reloder 33, too temp sensitive for my liking. Switched over to h1000 and 180 Berger hybrids @ 3100. Stays sub minute out to 1100. I did swap out the factory brake for a Ti side port brake from Mesa Precision Arms, I can spot my own hits now.

I just got the McMillan version today in 6.5CM. I've got a bunch of ELD X bullets and can't wait to run them in this. Going to be in the bean fields for the most part. Probably going with a 10, or 12x SWFA.

Let me know how it shoots. I have been very pleased with mine. I sighted mine in at 100 yards, chronographed the velocity, ran a balistic program (Strelok), and started hitting steel at 550 yards.

Still have not hand loaded for it yet. I bought factory Hornady 143 gr ELD X ammo for the brass but still have not bought dies etc.

Will do! I expect that it will shoot really well.

Real happy with mine! Paper targets were at 100 and 200 yards. Three shots on steel at 350 yards. All of these were shot with the brake. When I screwed on my GemTek Tracker, the groups went to hell. 143 ELD X, Hornady Brass, CCI primer, and H4350.

I think I am going to put a Timney on mine. Midway has a good price on them now.

Looks like you got a shooter.

Looking forward to playing with it more, after the season goes out. The trigger on mine is fantastic! It breaks cleanly and consistently at 3 pounds.

Santa brought me the Timney trigger I wanted for the Hells Canyon. I had to relieve a slot in the McMillan stock so the safety wouldn't bind. Easy to do and was expecting it.

I have the trigger set at 1 pound 13 oz. VERY pleased with it. No comparison to the stock trigger.

Anyone had theirs out on a backpack hunt or other rough conditions? Thoughts?

Mine has to weigh close to 9 pounds. I'll carry my Tikka in the mountains and keep the Browning in the bean fields.

I've been shooting it a bit more, now that the season is over. Getting just over 3.5 inches at 500!
