These are all the buzz on the sniper/tactical forums.

    I bought my first Mil Sec about 3 or 4 years ago. I was so impressed with the performance that I picked up another since. Just wore out the barrel on the first. Groups enlarged to 1 moa after 2500 rounds. Probably would have lasted longer but have overheated the barrel on numerous occasions.

    With Federal 168 factory match, consistent .5moa. With handloads they will bughole at 100 yards and hold 1/2-3/4 inch at 300 yards. While I have gotten good accuracy from stock Rem 700's I have found that my Milspecs will hold impact and accuracy over 150 rounds without cleaning..important in some of the competitions I participate in. Also, once broken in they clean up in less that a third the time. I am sold on the r-5 barrel.

    Are you serious with that quote at the bottom of your post. If bho gets his way he will take that nice gun from you.

    Thought this was a thread about the Remington 5R, but it seems to have turned into a political rant. OK, then: how about some confirmation of BHO ever repeating that Karl Marx quote; and if he did, in what context?
