    I can finally pick up mine tomorrow! 10 months wait.

    I have the steel challenge. I'm first going to sight-in with my 147 loads and run a match this weekend.

    Already have a 70 and a 60 lock pieces ordered. Going to do some testing with different PF factors versus bullet weight. I would like to eventually run cheaper 115. Looking for minimal dot movement versus recoil. Recoil has never been a problem with 9mm.

    Do you do much shooting on the move?

    Thatís where less recoil really comes into play for me.

    Makes a lot of sense. I'm going to play with the lock pieces and ammo for a while. Guess I will find out what works best for me.

    The less recoil, the less stability I need on entering a position.

    Unlike a pistol that I can stably mount with my upper body on entry, with a rifle the mount canít be dissociated from my chassis and lower body. So less recoil is a thing to take advantage of softer floating mount.

    Can you believe that they have pinned steel rails for wear so the rollers don't run on aluminum?

    Every wear piece is replaceable.

    Took mine apart to clean and lubricate today.

    Shooting tomorrow for the first time.

    I havenít made it out to shoot mine yet but I did go over it. I was impressed by the rails myself. Theyíre sort of dovetailed in there and then held in with roll pins.

    Did anyone else get a firing pin with a shorter base in the mail? I wonder what it does differently.

    The owner here said his has taken him to two Super Senior wins. He is a PPC Master on the qualifiers.

    He has thus far replaced springs and trigger but says there is more tinkering to come.
