Re: Help! Remington 700 308 win
I am not sure how long the throat of a 700 308 winnie is, although I should as I have screwed around with more remmy 308's than I care to admit. However, I wouldny worry about the throat length. Loaded to 2.825-2.830 is as long as the action will permit and still feed reliably. At these lengths, you will not be anywhere near the lands. I am not sure if you have a preconcieved idea that bullets have to be near or on the lands or what have you but rest assure they dont. My best groups at 100, 300 and 1000 yards were fired in a factory remington 700 308 using the same bullets you are. .000 at 100, .351 at 300 and 3.5 at 1K.
Relax. She will shoot fine.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
