All done with both of the AIs. 

Now the focus will/has shifted to reloading components and gear. 

Ordered 1000 107g SMKs, bullet holders and brass bag from Cole Tac.  Also decided to give the Crye Precision pants a try this year.  Hoping the knee pads help out with some knee issues I've had off and on over the last several years.
It pays to be a winner.

I've had an AX for the last year.  I sold a bunch of stuff and got one for my fiance.  Spent most of fall and winter getting them both set up identically with the exception of the caliber for now.  Mine is 6XC and hers is in 6.5 Creedmoor.  Just waiting on an adapter for my RRS tripod to arrive.

I'm currently working on a Mausingfield build in 260 remington. I have all of the components for the build, just waiting on the action.
XLR element chassis
26" threaded Shilen prefit barrel
Huber 2# single stage trigger
ARC rings
Vortex Razor HD 5-20x50 scope.

I could use some suggestions as far as a muzzle brake. What do you guys use?

When not using a suppressor it's either a TBAC brake or the APA Lil Bastard.  If I didn't own suppressors at all, I'd be running an APA Lil Bastard on every gun.

As I am a complete beginner I just purchased a Ruger American Rimfire 22LR bolt gun with a Nikon Prostaff 3-9x40 Rimfire. Set my target at 50 yards and am going to continue drilling it until I can consistently push 1/2 inch groups. Then jump to 100 yards and striving for 1 inch groups.

Once I am satisfied with my progress I will be upgrading to either a Savage Stealth or a Ruger RPR (both in 6.5 Creedmoor) with Vortex or SWFS glass.

Just using what I have until I can upgrade to something new. Selling stuff to buy new is how I got this far on the rifle.  Wanna buy a cycle to fund my new optic  ;D
