Very nice. What length barrel?  What does the setup weigh in at?

20"
Will probably get cut down for next year's hunting season once I get my tax stamps in.

Same optic in my 6.8

The LTR is a good platform to start from. I liked the one I had almost as much as hunting with the Tikka T3 Lite I have now. It was a superior rifle in some ways. At any rate, 20" or shorter barrels are awesome for offhand shooting. Looking forward to seeing what else you do with it. Mine was similarly configured with a NF 2.5-10X32. Have you considered adding a DBM like the Seekins or CDI?

I have had this for a few years, it is a shooter..

I removed the DBM for hunting use and went back to the factory blind mag.
