I sent them a email. Mentioned srs and mdr. Said I thought covert was the same as the srs but not sure about the hti. Maybe someone else can chime in. Covert ,srs, and hti same size grip? Oh and sweet rig WeiserBucks 🤘🏻
I have been exchanging emails and mo from talon grips said all they need is a set of skins to make the design off of somebody wants to be the guinea pig?

Today's the day ! ! !

I finally have a rifle again, not just a chassis and a good scope
Nice.....I got my 300 Norma barrel from SAC on tuesday. I'm going to wait for lapua brass though before I shoot it. I have a .308 barrel as well so I have that to itch the trigger finger.

Never had skins off or even messed with the trigger. Probably been said on here a hundred times but what’s the process. Skins bolt on to the chassis? Remove the hand guard to remove the skins?

Yep, skins bolt on the chassis. The handguard stays attached to the rest of the chassis, but it'll be clear once you start removing screws. I've only had mine off once.

Thanks, all I need now is an ultra short or the new kahles so I have room for a clip on. Not much real estate up top on the coverts
I put a half inch YHM riser on mine, it handles a big old PVS 30 and helps it over my supressor. I also put. 5 inch riser in back as well which shortens my eye relief when using my thermal.

The Yankee hill machine risers is the only riser I would use, others were too flimsy

Have a look at the Spuhr products. Innovative and intelligent design with a lot of flexibility to mount accessories if desired. Easy scope leveling solution built in, precision machining guarantees concentricity. They’re expensive but they’re awesome.

Thank you Bad Barrel. It didn't seem like it would take them very long to scan them/take measurements to get the grip tape printed.

Here it is with a 16in barrel and silencerco hybrid
That is so badass, I really want to get a clip on for my covert as well for pred hunting. Won't be for awhile though since I just got the ultra short. How does it run stick out a bit like that?

I only have had one other bolt action rifle before saving and saving and saving for my SRS. As I have started the 3rd round of reloading my 308 brass I was noticing some scratches along the brass from the shoulder to the base. nothing to serious but as I looked closer at the the dummy round I made to dry fire, there is places where the brass has been scraped off and I can feel the divots with my finger nail. I wanted to check with you guys and see if your magazines do this as well? I never noticed this on my model 70 and am thinking I could polish the feed lips on the magazine unless there were some other suggestions. Thank you guys.

I have a couple of mags that are sharp and do that. Probably should clean them up. But the ones I mostly use are nice and smooth. There was a time I kept buying mags. Lol. I got more than I probably need. There’s some pics in the thread about it. Could be in scout though idk.

I'm a big fan of the ARC M10 rings. The Unimount lends itself to quick detach if needed, but has allen heads to torque to spec also. The 1 screw and clam shell design makes it incredibly convenient for mounting without torquing the scope side/side. Additionally, Spuhr is good, but I hate the chincy screws they use, not to mention 12 screws vs 2 of the ARC.

What is the installation process/torque specs for the DTA .30 cal muzzle break? Does it offer much compared to bare muzzle?

I also have this problem but am not reloading yet so haven't dealt with it

I ended up ordering the spuhr qdp 4602. Got it for only 385 so I jumped on it. Originally it was 495. I may switch if it doesn't work out but I think it will. I emailed spuhr and that's what they recommend. Appreciate the input.

My 300 Norma is alive! Loaded 5 rounds with 225 ELD-M's and H1000 this morning. Two shots to zero and then this :

20180609_093635.jpg

Not to shabby for zero load development and only 5 rounds down it . This thing is going to be super easy to tune. Velocities were 2965 and an ES of 6 . I drank the Norma koolaid and man it tastes good so far .

One thing that gave me confidence in getting a SRS is the tiny groups consistently shot by lots of users. Ran out of 6.5 ammo yesterday banging steel. Swapped over to the factory 308 barrel. 2 shots on left for sighting, then 8 in the hole on the right.

Rounds 6 , 7 and 8 out of my new 300 Norma with a thoroughly cleaned bore . ES of 2 on these 3 rounds, this thing is making it easy on load development.
That ES is awesome! The last time I was out doing load development, one of my flat spots had an ES of 3 over .6 grains. I told anyone that would listen But of course no one really got how awesome that is. Congratulations again!

8 shots? That’s not just an incredible rifle, that is incredible shooting! It’s hard for me to get that focus after a couple of good shots. I definitely psych myself out.

Spent the whole day shooting and cleaning and shooting and cleaning. New barrel and what not . It now has 50 rounds down it . Over the course of the day , it was a solid 1/2 MOA , sometimes better but rarely worse . Final 3 of the day

I used to have a rifle with a stupid light and guts trigger, but it had a lot of over travel. I shot good with it but when I got my DT for whatever reason I noticed that I was naturally following through better due to minimum overtravel. It reminded me to focus on this. My group shooting instantly improved. Additionally I shot that pretty fast. I’ve shot my best groups when I’m not thinking about it and I just find a good cadence. When the reticle is where I want it I break the shot. I have never been a great group shooter but that has started to change with multiple barrels in my DT.

It was difficult at the time, but I simply couldn't afford to run out and get a new barrel and bolt, much less reloading components for the 300 Norma, without moving some items.

Sweet! Thank you again! I’d probably go with the black rubberized too.

Question for everyone.....I have barrels in .308 and 300 norma. I'd like to get 1 to 2 more barrels for my DT. What cartridges are you running in your DT? I have an SRS A1. I'd love to run 280 ackley because 1) It's a great cartridge 2) I have a lot of brass, bullets, powder, and dies for it. After talking with Mark at SAC I'm a little hesitant given the potential feeding issues. A hot 6mm would be fun, but I don't compete so I don't know how practical that would be. I punch paper, ring steel, and hunt. Anyway, just curious what everyone else is running. I'm loving this rifle so much I want to get a couple more barrels but I'll be damned if I can decide what to get :)
