My set up is a Howa 1500 chambered in .308. It has a #6 contoured heavy varmint barrel with a target crown mounted in a Bell and Carlson medalist MkII stock. A Wotac 4-14X50 from Wonder optics rides an EGW flat base.
I am thinking switching to an EGW 20 minute base so my erector is closer to centered at 1000 yards. I was shooting factory Magtech 150 grain boat tail FMJ.
A co-worker is loading some 155 Scenars for me. I haven't started working on a long range killing bullet yet but I am leaning to 180 grain bergers.
.308 Howa 1500, varmint supreme. 24" .820 barrel, Roedale precision brake.
.223 Howa 1500, varmint supreme, 24" .820 barrel.
RRA 20" predator pursuite, Magpul PRS, ALG trigger,
