    I buddy and I used IMR 4350 with this bullet for his Ruger M77. Excellent. We recently got in a quick test of the same load in his new T-3 Lite. It was blizzarding and we only fired enough to zero the new rifle/scope set-up at 50M. His last two three shot groups were about a single hole using just an elbow rest.~Muir

    On there way mate.
    Good luck for the morning

    Ha ha. Thankfully those days are gone. Doesn't get any better though. Now it's just about getting it in the pan. According to the missus blokes never can manage it.

    Cheers Muir.
    He will love his new rifle!!! Just got a Bell and Carlson stock for mine from Redhawk rifles over your side of the pond. Cheapest I could find anywhere. Good company to deal with. Feels a look stiffer than original factory stock.

    Where do you find the T-3 stock lacks stiffness? My 7-08 has always seemed fine. Maybe it's because we don't shoot other than standing, as a rule. No Mods or bipods to influence the bedding. Thanks for the tip on Redhawk Rifles. I'll look them up and see what they offer.~Muir

    PS: My buddy already loves his T3, 30-06. He carried it walking fence line last week in some miserable weather and found it was a joy to carry around!

    I just read good things about these stocks so I thought I would get one. It is a lot stiffer in the fore end than the factory stock. Alloy chassis from front to rear. Just a drop in unit.
    hopefully this link works

    i could not get one over here anywhere near this price
