Pretty excited about this as it turned out better than I expected.

I asked Shaen to Cerakote the bbl to match the Bighorn Origins Salt Bath Nitride coating and I'll be damned if he didn't absolutely nail it.

Looks fantastic if not better!

Only ran 5 fire form rounds down it so far as it showed up just prior to our 9 day late season deer hunt.

The .22 Creedmoor wasn't digging the McWalnut and with deer season fast approaching, I pulled it and put it back in the McM Hunter Edge fill that it was bedded to.

I have 100 rounds of 88/Lever form loads ready to go and the kids left just enough milk in the bottom of the jug to half fill a bowl of cereal almost.

You could say I got things covered.

This thing is shooting unbelievable!

I have 450 or so rounds down it and 75 eld’s with 27.6 gr of Lever in formed Rem cases is showing such tiny vertical I can’t hardly believe it.

Fast becoming a favorite.

Nah, I was up a few bucks up until a 1,325 yard Hail Mary almost put my family out on the streets.... 😜

Just glad I didn’t go home owing anybody money (cough, darrenk75b, cough)!
