As for the sciroccos, I only shot the level II, and I had mentally psyched myself out cause I was so pissed for spending $65on on the wrong shells. I went by shop today and got the 180 sciroccos in power level III and im ready to see if I can get. 5moa at 200 yds
I'd be mad as hell at myself too over that HA!

As well as you are doing so far I have no doubt it'll get the job done with the full power loads.

I'm going to try the federal premiums next time I take it out and see how they compare.

Re: My "Long Ranger" build

I got a deal last year on nosler 200gr partitions by federal for $40/box at midway. I only sighted it in 3" high at 100 yd and that is a gametaker. I took 4 whitetail, about 9 300lb+ hogs, and huge countless Louisiana beavers( no lie 60-100lb!) , and all these vermin were taken from 50-400u yds. I can't tell you how they punch paper, but I know they lay the smack down!

Re: My "Long Ranger" build

I sure would like to hear more about your stock!

It's *tentatively* on my list for when i can put my LR rifle together.

IIRC, it seems it has a great price, nice alum. bedding block, nice lug mounts on the side and super tough.

One thing i'm really concerned about is the palm-swell... I have med. sized hands and wouldn't want something i couldn't hang to very well.....

Nice looking rig!!! I hope you get some handloads going and really make her sing!

Mcmillan doesn't use aluminum other than for pillars. They are 100% composite other than that. You are thinking of the Bell and Carlson stocks I think.

Re: My "Long Ranger" build

Wildrose - nope, the OP's stock, iirc, is a Hogue. Take a peek at post #16 (gratuitous pic) of OP's rig - it's a Hogue Tac stock and a pretty sweet as well.

I first saw one here:

Review Choate New Tactical Stock - Remington 700 Tactical - TheFiringLine Forums

and from all i've read (never handled it....) it's a pretty sweet deal - especially for the asking price... I'd sure like to speak to someone 1st-hand about it.

EDIT: My bad - had Hogue on my mind when i wrote the above - i knew it was a Choate - even my link specifys it...... duh!!!!

THanks liltank for straighening me out!!!

That's a choate tactical stock. Check it out on their site. You can find them at midway also.
