    My 416 RM MRC is Kevlar, also shoots amazing! Almost all my hunting rifles that I seriously use up north are dressed in composite and stainless.

    Seriously considering an SCR in 338 Norma; if my (Master) gunsmith weren't so busy I'd have him build one for me He has used their actions and is quite happy to keep doing so..... (a 338 Norma in a Ruger No 1 might be a bit "ouchy"). I have a PacNor barrel and loading components laid aside.....

    I have a .280 Rem., 300 Weatherby, 9.3 X 62 and .375 H&H, the problem I have had is feeding with the .280 and 9.3, Montana could not make the 9.3 feed reliably. I sent both the 280 and 9.3 to a gunsmith that is verry good at feeding and both feed great after he worked on them. The positive thing that I can say is all of them are extremely accurrate.

    Once the sun is up good, I’ll get you a picture in direct sunlight. Meanwhile here’s one in SA in sunlight.

    Nice big thick bosses on him, and worn tips. I've been told the chest being rubbed bare of hair is a good indicator of his maturity.... Congratulations!!!!

    Cooper makes a beautiful rifle, but at almost twice the price for the same features in my research.
    I was looking for a weather resistant (Stainless, cerakote or nitride, synthetic stock to hunt coastal Alaska again), 375 H&H (to find ammo anywhere and the minimum to handle anything) with a removable muzzle brake (to relieve my old body while testing loads).

    How about a CZ or get a custom built? For a budget minded custom, start out with a Remington action instead of a 1k custom one. I've built my own complete rifles for less than 1200. That includes custom barrel, reamers/gauges, H.S. precision stock and aftermarket trigger. If a gunsmith does the work, add in another 300.
    Having said all that, one needs to reload to realize the full potential of this or any other non-rimfire firearm.

    The chest rubbed bare on a bull ussually coincides with the backs of a few cows being rubbed bare:K Over 18:

    Porker, it shoots most factory ammo into 1 1/2” or less and my handloads as you can see even better.
    Working on some Northfork 300gr SS loads now.

    Dang, that thing shoots! The stock color reminds me of the giant anthills in the Northern Territory out here in Oz. Congratulations!!!
