    I think you'll be happy with the 168 A-max. Might want to give the 168 Berger Hybrid a go too. It has a very high BC.

    Well I did not like the small bolt knob on the rem 700. I got this idea from a guy on SnipersHide.

    used

    step 1



    step 2

    so it would not mess up how it closed





    step 3 - 4 -5

    mix, apply, shape, sand and paint

    The bolt knob mod was a success. I really like how much easier it makes it to cycle

    Went shooting today... I did not get any pictures of the 100 yard groups "DUR" But when i did my part it was right around 1/2 inch.

    Here is a video shooting 500 yards. ( one of the guys swore. in case that bugs you don't watch it)

    Changed a few things on the rifle, Put a 20x scope on it and a cheek riser. I like the way it works!
