I so wanted to buy the Shadow .375CT but I found out the twist rate on the barrel is 1-11.5 and was very disappointed. I will be shooting .377 Grain and with a 11.5 twist that just won't work for me. I asked and Cadex won't offer any other at this time.
Above pics competition chassis, tac30, .260 Bartlein 26" barrel, Calvin elite 2 stage, atlas bipod. Special thanks to Greg at southern precision, outstanding customer service and workmanship. Best groups of they day shown was in the 3's. overall .600 on 35 rounds 42.0 h4350, 139scenars, tried touching lands 10 and 20 thousands off lands, 20 off best groups, more load development to follow.
Quick question, for the skeleton buttstock do you have to fully back out the thumb wheel screw to adjust the comb or just loosen? Can find videos of the strike tool-less one but so far none on skeleton one for adjustments. Trying to get an idea of ease for a long action I am starting to build have an XLR on another and wanting to try something more easily adjusted for this build.
I must of misunderstood your first post, I thought you were looking for the skeletonized butt stock to replace the one on the Field Core. It's $784. I'm debating on ordering a CDX 30 Lite, with the addition of the skeletonized stock.
So is the main difference between the Field Tactical and the Light Strike, simply the folding stock? I'm just trying to figure out why one is almost 800 more expensive than the other? They both look very similar to the eye, so I'd appreciate anyone with knowledge on both pointing out the things I may be missing!
My own design. I'm calling it the:
"Eris Mk. II S.W.S."
Stiller Precision Spectre Short Action

Triggertech R700 Special Trigger
Atlas 6-9" bipod
Cadex Core OT Chassis: Tan
Vortex Gen 1 Viper PST FFP 6-24x50
Vortex PMR 30mm High rings
Magpul Gen. 3 PRS Stock
(Not pictured) Silencerco Harvester 300
Spuhr Tactical Scope Mount
Schmidt and Bender PM-II 6-25x50
You might also consider taking the foam out of the case and rotating it 180° so that when you carry the case the rifle is in the upright position, shouldn't make a difference, but I think it is the preferred method for situating a rifle in a hard case.
Fun little build based on a trued 700 16.5" 223. Shoots absolutely lights out believe it or not. I wanted a "BAAR" - Bolt Action AR that is just more enjoyable and engaging to shoot and could be carried easily for small game hunting, etc. Got exactly what I was after
