Very Nice, how do you like the overall feel of the action/stock combo and the Barloc system? Thanks
Everything is great on it. No complaints at all. The Barloc is great. I really don’t know how much I’ll use the Barloc though as I don’t plan on switching barrels until I shoot this one out. The Barloc is ingenious though and very easy to setup. The stock and action are great. I’ve only sent about 30 rounds down the pipe but so far so good.

What order numbers have been notified of final billing?

I’m trying to gauge approximately when I’ll be notified.

Who’s got the lowest JHR order #? I’m 2096 for reference.

Im #1816 and i paid last week.
Does anybody know if the JH orders are being filled according to the order number. I thought I read that was not the case but orders were being filled according to caliber with the largest number of orders.
I called PVA about a month ago and was told that I was in the first 60 orders. My order is #2189. With BLKWLFK9 being #1816 and paying last week I think that I am within the first 60 orders for a 6mm Dasher or somebody from PVA blew smoke up my skirt.
Does anybody know if there will be 6mm BR or Dasher magazines/kits available to JH buyers, they have been out of stock for as long as I can remember. Going to be the chits to have a rifle someday and maybe have to wait on magazines.
I'll give PVA a call tomorrow.

The mag kits are in process of being made right now.
As far as lead time goes I don't have order numbers handy but keep in mind that between #1816 and #2189 is a litany of muzzle brake, mag kit, barreled action, barrel replacement, chassis, and barrel nut orders too. The order number only tells you comparatively you're after BLKWLF9's order, nothing more.

I fully realize that, but answer a question for me, Jeremy was the gent who told me that I was in the first 60, is this the first 60 rifles or the first 60 6mm Dashers or is neither correct?

If Jeremy said you were in the 1st 60, im sure he meant 1st 60 rifles and not just dashers

I have been watching this thread and Srgt. Hulka since this thing started. I honestly can say I'm excited for the guy :) He reminds me of an old First Sgt I had... Either that or I am remembering Stripes and putting myself in Bill Murray's shoes...

Thanks Jbailey. I'm a newb at this long range stuff, and this is the most I've ever spent on a gun, any gun, and will probably be my only "custom" (even though it's not really custom) long range rifle. I was tremendously disappointed when the wait first started, but I figured I'd just have fun with it. Nothing else I can do, right? I know Josh and Jeremy have been working hard to make this come together. Anyway, looks like the wait will be coming to an end soon. Then the hard (but fun) part starts. On top of everything else, the scope I have, that was going on top of my JHR, took a dump on me last week. Now I have to send it off for repairs. Now I'm hoping I can get it back before my rifle arrives.

Bummer to hear about your scope Srgt! I've had a Razor sitting in the box since about a month after I ordered the rifle. Been tempted to put it on my rimfire PRS and some other rifles, but saving it's cherry for the JHR. I'm going to have wore out the "free" hat that came with it before it gets mounted lol

Nice 3gunsteve. I know it’s been difficult not mounting that on a rifle and taking it to the range. I don’t think I could have held out that long. I’d love get a Razor. I’m afraid I’d be divorced if I did though. :D

I too cannot wait for Hulka to get his notification!!! He is #1952 & I am #1953. This will be my first custom-ish rifle as well. I have a safe full of tack-driving Savages, but I am sure this JHR will top them. I will continue to check my email every hour or so.......

I think i might join the waiting masses and put down some money on it (if I do it by tomorrow, I get free shipping!!). can't be worse than the wait for a new can, can it? :ROFLMAO:

Im order #1857 for a 308 paid in full on 11-14-18 have not received shipping info yet. Its gotta be close though
What's your chambering? I'm 1841 but had a little change a while back from 22 creed to 223. I haven't gotten notification to pay yet but maybe that's why.

drank the Koolaid and pulled the proverbial trigger on an FDE 6.5cm last night. I guess it's like having a can in jail. hopefully not as long of a wait though!

time to stop perusing the rifle ads and start looking for new dies/brass/bullets, etc.

:)

All the startup issues are worked out. I bet PVA will get caught up pretty quick, and your wait won’t be as long as you think.

The HMFIC of PVA (me) is a lefty shooter... once we get things caught up on the RH rifles the LH conversions are on the very short list of projects for the new CNC mill I ordered last week. Ted shipped me LH SN #1 this week for Hancocks.
