    Try 2000mr powder with the 175s in Winchester or Lapua brass you'll be surprised to get see 2550 to 2600 fps in your 16" barrel. That's what I use in my 16" Ax . I like your set up!
    Thank you, what charge were you running with 2000MR? At those speeds 2550-2600fps there is no reason for a 20” barrel. I am currently running 41.8grs of 4064 in Lake City 19 brass. Don’t think I could stuff much more powder in there.

    Recieved the Dependabilt Dovetail plate from Sawtooth and I am really impressed. Obligatory pictures

    Yes sir no need for a 20" if you want to stay compact and yet get the 20" velocities.
    You'd need to work up cautiously but be sure to run Winchester or Lapua brass for max safe speeds. The loads I've done with Lake City LR brass aren't up to those speeds due to lower case volume but 46.5 gns was max safe in my barrel with LC brass . The 175s 178s and 185s ive started at 46 grains and worked up to 48.5 gns in Lapua and Winchester brass.

    You should be able to get 2600 in your AI. I get that in my custom 16” built off a howa action with 44.8 of Varget. 2206H which is H4895 I think over there works well for 308 and short barrels. Awesome looking rifle 🤙🏼

    My comp trigger has about 2,000 rounds on it with my AXSA in 6.5CM, 260 and 308. It began creeping about 200 rounds ago, I pulled it out, flushed it, adjusted it as per the instruction manual... Easy fix, took all the creep out, beautiful clean breaks again. Put it back in without issue, slam fire tests and all the rest, no issues.

    Cleaned it out well with shellite before adjusting it, that got a fair bit of crud out and some extremely fine metal shavings. Strangely enough, the screws were SNUG, took a bit to turn them initially so I don't believe it would have slipped from firing.

    After about 100 rounds, the sear intermittently now fails to engage and cock the firing pin back, I have to lift and lower the bolt 2-5 times with varying pressure to get it to hold at times... I need to pull it out and tweak it a bit more. It's very simple to adjust, I just need to tweak the engagement screws a tad more to give it something to hold onto. The 3 position safety works fine, the shots break cleanly, it's still configured as a two stage trigger, I didn't touch anything outside of the instructions.

    Something I will keep a close eye on. Might put the factory trigger back in for a while until I'm happy with this one.

    Awesome!!!

    Question for you gents:

    Anyone have first hand knowledge of which specific ERATAC Adjustable mount would be perfect for a NF ATACR 7-35 on an AXSR?

    Depends on how much can't you'll see yourself using. 1.57" is what I'd go with

    The more can't, the higher the mount
    I do want a 100 yard zero capability

    This will be my buy once, CRY once .......prolly filled with thoughts of "why didn't I do this before?" Lol

    FWIW I run 40moa total (20 in the base and 20 in the mount) on my AXSA and a tangent theta with the tennebrex caps and have no clearance issues and maintain a 100yd zero with my 22GT, 6BRA, and my 6.5cm barrels. Mount is a Spuhr SP-4602 (1.5” 20MOA) 535CA9E9-3D4A-4388-9EE9-10B42C7E6A99.jpeg

    Looks like 50moa is max can't you can use, whille still being able to zero at 100y/m with the 7-35x. But I'd go 40moa total (mount + rail) so you won't get too much of an oval effect in your FOV.

    So you'll only use 20moa of adjustable can't on that ERA-TAC since the AXSR only come in 20moa. Unless you want to use more when shooting extended LR.

    DTA SRS is a very nice system as well. I ran one prior to my AI's as well, but I agree that the AI is a step up. Nice choice going with the green.

    Sex on Ice. Only a couple things that will make this pic a whole lot better. But why ruin the surprise...

    Looks like I’ll be ditching the Manners TCS stock I have in favor of the AT-X chassis in a couple years when it’s finally released. Would be nice to have my elite sand ax and an elite sand AT-X

    Mind sharing some pics of the elite sand?

    Anyone have elite sand next to dark earth for comparison?

    I bet that whole rig looks sweet! Wrong color, but really nice looking.

    FWIW - V22 in an AICS.
