Ah yes the details:
Magpul PRS stock with monopod
Spikes Tactical T2 buffer
Spikes Tactical Lower
Timney single stage 3# trigger
KNS anti walk pins
Vltor MUR upper
DPMS Titanium Nitride Bolt Carrier
Super Sniper 1 piece rings
Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 SFP
Troy Low Profile Gas block
WCI muzzle brake
Harris Bipod
Magpul Grip
Troy Extreme Free Float Forend
Bravo Company Gunfighter Charging Handle
AA 24" stainless 1:9 barrel

I think that's pretty much it. Will probably add an angular rail for a red dot for shots 200 yards or closer.

Well, to be honest I haven't done anything for reloading. There is quite a bit commercially now and wolf is even loading it. Eventually I plan on doing some reloads for accuracy and velocity, but haven't taken that step yet. I'm going to shoot just about every commercial load option I can find to see what she likes best in the meantime.

I bought a 20rd box of Hornady match ammo for $20 to shoot through a friends 6.5 upper he put on a LMT lower. This is the upper he bought:
http://www.shopalexanderarms.com/Upp..._Receiver.html with a Nightforce 3.5-15x56 scope. Rifle is far more accurate than I can shoot it.

Nicely done FiremanTX, have fun!

Thanks, I'm looking forward to getting her out and shooting! And btw, that is a sweet looking upper.

You can find wolf ammo for $15 a box all the way up to $40 or $50 for match or specialty ammo. A lot of people have had real good results with Hornady A-Max and it's around $24 a box. Not too bad IMO.
