Re: Rem 700 R-5 MilSpec 308
Well, I bought one last week and shot it today. Went out to the garage this AM with a coffee to do some reloading and discovered that unbeknownst to me my oldest son had loaded the remainder of our 168 Match Kings for his Savage and a trip out to the farm,...so, all I had in 30 cal were hunting bullets. So I loaded 180 Accubonds with Varget. After a barrel break in routine of cleaning after every shot for 10 rounds of factory ammo, I cleaned it again, let it cool, fired a fouling shot and then put 3 of the Accubonds with 41 grs of Varget into a .22" group at 100 yards and 3 into 1-1/8" at 200.....I think it will shoot.
This was with a Jewell trigger and a Leupold Mark 4 LR/T 4.5-14 scope.
I'll pickup more MK's this week, maybe some 168 Bergers as well....
