Default Mann Rifle

Courtesy of WrMorrison. He started and mostly completed the build. Most of the tweaks I have done have been behind the curtain.
Smith Corona action. Chambered in 308 Winchester
I've got her shooting .4 to .3 MOA at 200yds. Too short a barrel for 1000yd competitions but I think she'll do quite nicely at medium range F class matches.

Default Looks nice

I like the green and mat combination and of course you can never go wrong with a walnut stock. How loud is it with the brake or F/S? Weaver T36 on top?

Splinter shield. The range I have access to has weathered wire spools for benches. Challenging to find one that doesn't wobble too bad.
I can't say how loud it is. I'm always on the other end and it is only a flash hider. I've shot it without it with no noticeable change in recoil. Then again the rifle weighs 16lbs. 10 of which is barrel.
It is a Weaver T36. The Super Sniper it had is a nice scope but the reticle is way too thick for precision shooting.

An update.
I've been shooting this rifle from the bench only and last weekend because I now have a load it likes I dropped to the ground and shot prone.
What a difference! I'm guessing that being prone changed the recoil characteristics and eliminated the hop I was getting on the bench. I shot several 10 shot groups with no fliers and the outside edges of the one ragged hole measured from .82 - .63 inches. At 200+ yards. I think we are there!
Gonna be a hit at F-Class matches!

Finally got to shoot this beast today in an any/any MR(600yd) match.
6 shooters in F-class. I placed 3rd out of the six. One who shot better than me was shooting an F-open rifle in 6.5X284and the other one was shooting a 6BR in an expensive action I didn't recognize.
I was beat by 586-25 and a 589-28. I shot a 578-16.
Overall I'm proud of the rifle. It did very well considering it had six inches less barrel than the other two and is using a 66 year old action.
The match was at Buffalo Creek outside of Bailey Colorado. It is an awesome place! The official name is Camp Fickes. It should be called Camp Fickle winds. I looked down more than once and the wind flags were pointing three directions.
Couple of pics of the range
