Re: REMINGTON 700 VLS 7MM-08

Have a local customer who bought one, had me do a trigger job, bed it and recrown it and it runs about the 3/4" mark with factory ammo- he doesn't reload.

Re: REMINGTON 700 VLS 7MM-08

Is this stainless? I get the Letters mixed up, but mine is the Varmint spesial with a laminate stock. Mine is a tack driver. Although not my hunting loads it will consistently shoot 3 shot groups around 1/2". My best to date is.183, but I've got a handful .3" or better. I'm not a 'precision' reloader as I do not weigh my bullets or cases nor check for concentrency Heck, I can't even spell it. I don't 'push' reloads and have found Hornadt Light Mags shoot around one inch groups at 2980fps and that is about 150fps faster than max loads in most books for me. capt david [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
Actually, it shoots awfull [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] and if you don't buy it or want to seel let me know [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: REMINGTON 700 VLS 7MM-08

I have a 700 VLS in 7mm08 that I have just started testing with. I have seen several groups under an inch with 140gr Nosler BT's & IMR 4895 powder. According to the loading manuals there are better powders out there so I expect to see much better from this rifle. The trigger needed a little work but other than that it is a stock rifle. Remington stopped production of the VLS in 7mm08 in the late 90's according to the Blue Book, so if you have one found you may want to go ahead & buy it.
