Congratulations on the elk. If you don't mind I have a few questions about the rifle you are shooting. I am in a place where I need to "upgrade" but camt afford to go full custom. How you went about it is exactly what I have been looking at. If you are willing to share, how much did the work from Travis cost? Im trying to get the gun this winter and hopefully pay for the work next spring.just looking ata ball park figure. Secondly what kind of velocities are you getting with that Remington? Load recipe? Thanks in advance for any information you are willing to share.
