Going to montana
So im heding to montana on april 11th, heres the deal were shooting prairie dogs, and im building a varmint gun.
I bought a remington 700 sps varmint in 22-250. Right off the bat Im bedding the rifle and free floating the barrel and adjusting the trigger to as light as i can get it with the new triggers and 3 set screws rem's new guns are comng out with. If the trigger doesnt work out i plan on getting a new trigger. (havent decided who)
Im having it target crowned, and im mounting a leupold var3 6.5-20x40mm scope on it with burris mounts and leuopld quick release mounts. I will start working a load for it, i have rcbs press and a old lee press etc etc etc. Hopefully well get this gun working right.
I do plan on getting rid of the stock, and getting a B&C, but you know i wanna give it a shot before i thow in that kinda money, since the stock is hollow i plan on weighing that down with some led and fill it in with epoxy, give it more weight and balance it out
This will be my first rem 700 action, i have exp. with 22-250 bbr from browning and man that gun performs( currently being rebarreled). Im wondering how everyone feels with the potential of the barrel which is heavy contour i think.820 and 26inch in length at the muzzle and twist is 14", and the 700 action. I know theyre mass production and all that, but man i read and hear decent things from them, can i get your guys' take on it im sure theres welth on top of wealth of expiereince here.
Seems the cup runneth over here.
