a couple years back i bought a remington 700 sps varmint in a 243. win with a 26" bull barrel. For 599 dollars or so i thought it was pretty good looking and a great platform. I threw a vortex viper on it and picked up the cheapest box of ammo i could find. 80 grain soft point federal premium ammunition. I was amazed with the accuracy! first round (the low one was to see where it was hitting at 104 yards, brought it up 1 moa and fired 3 shot group. [IMG]
I also had a chance to shoot a big whitetail doe in Montana 2 years ago and it only went about 40 yards before barreling over.
I haven't had too much experience with it at anything over 300 yards but here are a few groups. I only had limited bullets so i shot a few 2 shot groups and a few 3 shot groups.
2 shot group at 200 [IMG]
2 shot group at 300 yards
3 shot group at 400 yards [IMG]
Now i thought these groups were pretty good for factory gun and factory ammunition. I would really like to take this gun and make it better but not sure where to start with the customizing.
