Rem 700 R5 Milspec 308
Last summer I purchased a .300 Win Mag Remington Sendero, and an 4 by 14 by 56 mm Leupold scope. Very very accurate - did some 600 and 1,000 yard shooting. Federal Gold Match 190 gr BTHP ammo. Although I will be reloading my own from now on. It is amazing the energy the .300 still carries at 1,000 yards. Also devastating on a coyote at 107 yards!! However, the .300 can beat you up after a while, so I ordered an R5 .308. Very nice. For now I just have a Simmons 6 by 20 by 50 mm scope w mil dot reticle on the R5 as I will be paying off credit cards for a while for these rifles and a few more. I will break it in with that scope, but plan to get a Sightron, Leupold, or Nightforce eventually. Probably in the 6 by 24 by 50 mm range. I am looking forward to taking the R5 out this spring - will be reloading for that rifle as well. I enjoy this website and these forums - lots of good information!
