Re: how far would you trust this rifle

I'd trust it for a half-mile or so!! Also, I love the way that stainless gun looks in that CDL stock. What an awesome looking rig! ~JT

Against what - Elk or Prairie Dogs.

Prairie Dogs... about 300 yds!

Elk - 700 or 800, for a predictable hit.

Don't take this the wrong way, but while you were throwing all that money at it, you should have gotten a new tube.

All that lug lappin', Shilen triggers, and pillar bedding on a factory barrel (they cost Rem about $30-$50 each), is like dressing up a toad for the prom.

Sometimes a Remington barrel can be terrific, but 3 "inches" at 300yds ain't so good.

You got to have a better barrel if you want to reach out and touch something at really long range.

OK... about 3" at 300 yds - sorry, but the edit function is not working and I couldn't fix it.

But 1 minute is still not a player in long range hunting.
