Just tracked my package....It's out for delivery....This wait may kill me...I've been waiting since February for my new toy. APA .280 AI, on its way in from CorBon after the guys over there did a load development for me. I'll post some pics as soon as I get it in. Gonna be a hunting/tactical rig....primarily hunting though. According to Pete at CorBon, she's a shooter! Can't wait!

Brown truck has arrived. Albeit at 7:00 pm. This gun is unreal. I'll post the build sheet and upload some photos tomorrow.
