Talking My 6BR is done

I thought you guys would like to see my latest build. It's a Rem 700 in 6BR, accurized with a shilen match barrel and Bobby Hart Stock.

I see that berger has a new 87 gr bullet for 1:10's, that maybe a even better choice

Looks like a shooter. Was that shooting off a bench or bi-pod?
