You mean the BEAST?!?  No way.  Anyway, it's not a Striker - it's a savage target action.  Trying to figure out a way to take it late-season elk hunting on a shoestring budget.  I'd love to take a bull at 500yds or so with it.  It's filthy.

Deck, how about a pic of the "Beast"?

Yeah, Ted.  Not quite.  It weighs about 12 lbs.  That's a full bull 19" (17" plus 2" brake) McGowen barrel.

With a suppressor on it, that'd be fun.
And maybe a shoulder stock too.

It's an un-designated action, so it can be whatever I want it to be.  I agree re-compressor.  the brake is nice, but not really necessary with all of the weight.

Oh, and it's fun as-is.  It's almost a religious experience when the concussion from the muzzle brake washes back over you that close!

Pure sex!!! 👍🥃💥. I do remember when you received the action.

I saw quite a few dual port rifles the two times I worked 1000 yard shoots at the club in PA with Kowa.

That's the first place I ever saw a dual port. The speed that some of those guys shot with was amazing.

Well...... I found a Win 70 Stealth in 223 for a steal and picked it up.  Unmolested, clean, appears fired very little.  Going to cut and thread the barrel and see what she'll do.  Kinda heavy right now but I just love win 70 actions.....


Thinking a 6.5 custom build.... for later

Examined it well last night.  Winchester records show it as a 1998 manufacture date with a 1:9 twist..... using the dowel method and testing it I get an actual twist of 1:8..... tested it several times..... glad its faster than expected but would have rather had a 1:7 for sure.

The HS stock is nice, has a Remington PSS feel, smooth trigger and feeds good.   Got to get a rail and optic mounted as well.  Going to shoot it first before trimming the barrel.
