I love the more traditional Wood, Bakelite, Triangle Folder and Krink set up.....but in the Black Configuration you have it I think I'm going to have to make an exception....especially with the Bulgy 4 peice FH....Holy God that's Sexy!!

Here is a cell phone pic of the functional test. Range is about 20 yards:



This was done with the 4 piece booster. I haven't shot it yet with the cone booster. Ammo was 60gr. Silver Bear. I will do a more thorough test at a longer range within the next couple of weeks.

You are not alone. Everyone who has seen the rifle, or the pics, tells me the polymer is the way to go. At first I wanted the polymer but when I put the wood and triangle on, I changed my mind. I like the traditional look too.

And now, everyone is telling me the black polymer is so much better looking. All I need to do now is get the plum furniture from K-Var and really confuse things.

Make sure you try it without any muzzle devices too. I did the same thing on mine but I won't be able to try it until this weekend. What tool did you use for the crown?

Yes, I need to spend more time with it. It appears that a couple of the holes are elongated. I will use paper targets, not the splatter type, next time.

I used the 90 degree and 11 degree cutters from Dinzag. The initial cut was with a hack saw, then filed to smooth it out. Used the 90 degree cutter to square the cut and the 11 degree to do the crown.

I used the same tool, sold by a lot of places. Only thing is I went with the 11 degree crown after smoothing the cut out with a file.

Key holing would be fairly obvious, the bullet would be sideways, even at short distances.

excellent! thank you sir! if you can, try it with 7n6. I had a US made barrel that would keyhole 7n6, but not commercial ammo.

especially at short distances in my experience. At 25 yards it was horrendous, at 50 yards they would straighten up quite a bit
