Yeah it aint that bad.
Could maybe send to reputable place for touch up.
Pulled it out of the safe, all oiled up.
Damn it is pretty.

Have not found an M8 8X AO to stick on it yet.
That happens and it will probably stay LOL

Might shoot it next weekend.
Deer rifle......any factory load recommendations?

Was thinking something around 150 gr



Very nice rifle.

I've owned a later 1A in 280 as well my go to rifle for years was a Ruger MKII stainless in 280.

Both shot very well with Hornady 139 gr ft over max loads of either IMR or H 4831.

Nice stick of wood!

I once had one of these factory chambered in "7mm Express". Not this pretty. Any idea how scarce that would have been?

Thanks. I dug it out of the safe and the marks are becoming more tolerable LOL
Because that wood is so nice.
Still hunting for a scope.
If it shoots, keep, if it disappoints, away she goes.
I don't need it..........but bought it just because of the wood (and I like #1s).

Saw on a FB forum a 1B w peep on quarter rib and a front sight added.
That was pretty frickin cool looking IMHO.
Might have to buy another one just to mess with that.
