I got my McGowen 40 cal from Carlos this past week & I was just able to find time to get the VX-R mounted. I have to get a few things ordered before I can get to the range, but I am really looking forward to it.

My plans at this point are 75gr of 4895 with either a Barnes MZ195 or a CEB 240.

Anyway, here are a couple of pics & I'll have more soon.

Greg

That is beautiful. If it shoots as good as it looks, WATCH OUT!

Thanks guys. I love the 40 caliber & we can go as small as 35 caliber here. With the muzzle brake & the recoil reduction I know she will be a great shooter. Ever since I had shoulder problems I've found a real  improvement in consistent accuracy with reduced recoil from smaller calibers. Thus my love for rifles such as 243, 260, & 257 Wby. You don't have to have a cannon to take game cleanly & effectively.

Scott.....I'm looking forward to seeing your 40 cal build

Greg
