.308 VTR coming together

This load (48 grs 4350,cci mag primer,168 gr Hornaday AMAX,rem brass) is by far the most accurate I have found.Either this rifle needed some serious break in or it just really likes this round.Got the mildots figured out to 600 and this round bucks the wind pretty well.Shot in some decent crosswind sunday and it did well.Shot this group at 115 in the wind Sunday.

    NONYA,

    I am interested in a Remington VTF; what is your opinion on her so far? I am trying to decide if I should go this route or look for a different Remington.

    Thanks,

    Paul

    It really likes the 168s,165s shot well (moa) but not like these AMAXs.I think its a great little factory rifle,all i have done to mine is float the barrel,adjust trigger and add a extended mag box.Im going to pick one up in 223 eventually,funt to shoot fer sure.
