Anything?  New toys for next season?  Switching to cool-kid 6mm?  Some new-fangled cartridge?

Tell me all about it.  I'm making a change myself, but interested to see what everyone else is doing.

Working on my Mk13 Mod7 though if the right deal on a finished 6mm Dasher came up I could be persuaded to trade.

I abandoned the Mk13 clone and scooped up a second AI AX and an RRS tripod set up.

No new builds, but am switching from 6.5 Creedmoor to 6mm Creedmoor.  Would love to do a Dasher, but financially the 6 Creedmoor makes more sense for me right now.

I might scoop up a 6 Creedmoor barrel or two with the tax return.  Just so I can buy factory ammo if Im in a pinch.

Current build I'm working on:
BigHorn TL3 Short Action
6.5 Creedmoor Bartlein Remington Varmint Contour (undecided on finished length 22, 23, 24")
Manners MCS T6A
Trigger Tech Special Trigger
Athlon Ares BTR 4.5-27x50
Area 419 Hellfire Brake

This will be quite a step up for me but I am diving right in.

If youre shooting braked, go 26.  Adds a few extra FPS.

Too late, smith has it. Went with 24".  I have no doubts I will be happy with my choice.
