OK here are the first photos... of the Remington in .300 Remington Ultra Mag.
This thing is so sweet, it is just breathtaking.
The finish has a slightly jaundiced look - that is supposed to be part of the corrosion protection.
Nice, crisp trigger at about 5-6 pounds but can be adjusted down - they call it the X-Mark trigger.
Very "center balanced" feel and I think that will only be accentuated with the addition of the scope and rings.
The jeweled bolt is a work of art and it slides into the action like polished glass.
Remington has always made great, great rifles and this one is just a show stopper.
BGH - I do not know how to say it - you folks are just simply THE BEST!!!!
While I am thanking BGH, I would also like to recognize the other competitors in the December contest... there was a lot to be learned there - lessons in hunting and the outdoors, for sure - but also in humility, grace, sportsmanship, comraderie and of course, good old fashioned competitiveness.
My hat is off to you guys... and I am a better man for "knowing" and interacting with each of you.
Oh yeah... did I mention that BigGameHunt ROCKS????
Humbled in SC....
