Re: My new .308

Hmmmm, guess I'm odd man out on this one.

If it shoots to your satisfaction with that stock there's no sense in changing it.

I've had 3 stocks on a remmy 338 RUM. Shoots best with a $40 tupperware stock I stuck on it to try.

Noticeably better than the pillar/skim bedded stock which shot darn good.

Just my 2 cents.

Yes and no JMO
the stock may shoot fine, but the feel is no comparison and that alone can make a better shooter with the tool at hand but again JMO

Re: My new .308

Went out and did some shooting at 200 yards, cross wind of 20-30 mph. shot 42, 42.5, 43, 43.5 gr of Varget pushing a 168gr sierra matchking.

This was the best one 43.5 gr I would like to think the flyer was me... on inch with out it.

its a start i guess....
