The barrel on that 350 is more than likely
a button out of the custom shop as well

Its good to hear about Rem going back to
HS over the BC of which they had problems
with them.

Monte, Tell me about the "skim bedding" you had to do on your stocks with the aluminum bedding blocks. How did you determine they needed it? What did it do for you accuracy wise. Thanks, Mike.

Re: Who makes Remington\'s stocks?

On my 700VS in .223, it was almost like the action was bedded in a V-block, w/ a couple of long contact points (apparent by slight wear marks btwn the action and the bedding block) on each side. To add insult to injury, they weren't exactly centered, which to me (and the gunsmith that did the bedding) meant the action wasn't being fully supported all the way around, fore to aft, and not even equally from one side to the other.

The gun went from being what I would call probably an honest 3/4" gun (@100yds), w/ the occasional day where I could stack them under 1/2". Compared to what I had seen/heard some people lament about getting for groups from their 700VS rifles, I thought this was not to shabby as it was, and was extremely reluctant to let the gunsmith do it. Finally the advice of one of the local HBR shooters pushed me over the brink and I did it.

Now it probably averages 1/2", and on a good day when I'm up to it, I can stack them in one little hole.

After that, when I signed for my gun at the counter in the gunstore, I didn't even unpackage it until I was handing it to the gunsmith 15 minutes later... [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] According to him, the .308 was almost even worse off than the .223 was.

W/ it's favorite load of a 175gr SMK and 45.0gr Varget, it will stuff 'em in a nickel-sized group or (frequently) smaller. And that is w/, as far as I'm concerned, absolutely no help from the Remington barrel, w/ a laundry list of gripes there. Suffice to say that the one thing they got right is that the chamber is *straight*!

YMMV,

Monte
