I'm all done with my DIY work one my Winchester M70 30-06. Glass bedded the action, strengthened and inletted the forend for a free float, took the trigger down to 2 lbs, painted the stock, and topped it with a VX3 3.5-10x50 with the M1 turret. I can't believe how well it shoots. 3 shot groups at 100 have been 2 in the same hole with one about 1/4" outside. Haven't even shot it out of a vice yet.
I'm really impressed with the turret system. The other day I crushed a softball sized rock at 640 yds first try. Today I whacked this coyote at 466.
Here is the rifle before (earlier this year).
