That sounds awesome CC. I like everything about it. You can elk hunt with that if you wanted to. This may be the most practical hunting gun on the forum. I have to ask about the weight and felt recoil. I know you are use to more recoil with your 300, but for us old guys i would think it is less than a 7mm. I think you have it scoped just right. Congratulations on putting your 06 back to work.
