Mine is a round barrel, those get made when enough orders justify the set up.  Covid added several months as well.

The pack hardening on this thing reminds me of pictures of interstellar nebulae. 


Fanciful, ain't I?

Well, I'm often accused of having my head in the clouds, but I doubt I'd have made that comparison.

Nice set up.  My aging eyes are liking that scope!

It's an excellent scope, surprisingly light and very precise.  Combined with the excellent rifle and well loaded ammunition, I can set a paper plate out at 200 yards and pick where on the plate I want the group. 

I like it best for load development, then I can put the Tang sight on for field work.  The mounts are great, hold zero on and off the rifle.  Though I can see as I get older this will spend more and more time on the rifle. Reports from the BPCR guys say it's plenty tough.
