Shooting Winchester Supreme 168 gr. Hollow Point Boattail Match (S308M) ...It's what my Dept. supplies....It shoots identical to FGMM out of my GAP built 700.....VERY happy with it for LE use...not sure how it would do at a grand....Will see at R.O. this fall when I return....

Re: NEW BUILD COMPLETE

I absolutely love the stock thus far! My GAP built 700 wears an AICS 1.5 and I like the feel of the PDC Customs better....outside temp was getting pretty hot the other morning and the bed-liner on the cheek piece really killed any heat that the aluminum might have acquired in the sun.....that was my only concern at first, but the bed-liner stays much cooler like plastic when compared to aluminum.....

Re: NEW BUILD COMPLETE

Happy with it thus far...It does adjust vertically, but I have it dropped to its lowest point.....like it there.

Re: NEW BUILD COMPLETE

Excellent. My build that will be shipping to me this week will be wearing a black PDC. Craig at PDC is an awesome guy to do business with. How long was your wait on the stock TXBRASS?

Re: NEW BUILD COMPLETE

Wait was about 6 weeks on stock.....

Hooper,

Scope (thus far) is nice for what I'm using it for.....Ask me again in a few hundred rounds....
VERY nice work on the bolt modifications by the way! Been getting tons of compliments on the reinforcing screws and how nice the knob transitions to the handle....I RECOMMEND HOOPER ORDINANCE for all bolt and custom knob modifications!
