Well I was playing at an Auction house about 80 miles from my home. I was bidding on a Ruger 77 stainless Mark II with a Boyds stock. I placed some bids over last weekend and decided I was done but the Auction got extended one day for website freeze they had Monday. Just for the heck of it I put...
So my Tikka .270W got a face lift. I prefer wood but since it is a stainless rifle and the one I use on nasty wintry days hunting deer I went with the composite stock and the green goes well with the look of stainless.

Another batch was 30/06 Norma 170 grain Tipstrikes using RE-17, Staball 6.5, and Norma URP.
Now just need to warm up a little to test them I have two each of...
