Re: Remington 700 5r milspec 300wm

Here is some info on my recently purchased 5R 300 WM.

Here is a video link of me shooting it suppressed.

    Brent thats an awesome looking setup. That picture of your 110 yard group is outstanding.
    I guess the claim that a 300WM cant be as accurate as a 308 is a myth

    Plenty of long range records have been won with a 300 Win mag. The 5R is a solid rifle for sure.

    What model is your AR10?

    Armalite lower/upper
    Noveske 18" barrel with AAC flash hider
    PRI tube
    PRI gasbuster charging handle
    PRS stock
    GG&G front/rear sights

    I really dont want to get rid of it. Im thinking of just keeping it in AZ where I live and bringing whatever California legal guns I have with me.
    I may only be there for the summer, Im not sure if its going to be a permanent move or not. But if I do end up trading, a rem700 5r would be nice. I also like the FN SPR

    Keep the AR10 for sure. While the 5R is a solid rifle, I don't think the trade is a fair deal without some extra cash involved for your AR10. You can find lightly used 5Rs for under 1K quite regularly, and I'm absolutely sure your AR10 is worth more than that. If you must trade your AR10, consider getting both the bolt guns you mentioned in your first post for it.

    ya its woth almost double but the trade was going to include a sightron s3 scope, forester dies, 20 moa badger rail and badger rings and 200 rounds with 210gr berger vld's to make up the difference.
    That deal fell through, so Ive decided just to keep it

    You certainly won't go wrong with the M700 5R .300WM and with a little doctoring by a good gunsmith and a replacement trigger you may do better than 1/2 MOA at 100 yards. Mine does.
