* you just answered some of the comments posted here. Whatkind of groups are you shooting with your .243 at a hundred yards or more?

* Your about to enter into a new adventure with the .264 mag. A similar case to the 7mm mag and the 270 WBY mag and the .257mag. Keep us posted on your latest conquest (I'd rather had the 7mm myself, or better yet the 7mm WBY mag)

Try different bullets...Different wieghts, makes, I've seen 1gr of powder make a big difference!! As has all reloaders, sometimes you have to FIND what the GUN Likes!!

Re: Remington 700 quality

This gun cost $3000 . Ishot sunday and i got a group of 1.8". I am going to try some other ammo to see if it makes a difference. When i hand loaded, ever thing makes a difference. I don't have time anymore so i buy loaded ammo. I have been shooting berger ammo, i am going to try federal premium i have had good luck with their 7mm rem mag.

The groups I get from my 243 at 100 yd. run in the 1/2 in range.Some days I do better than others,my eyes are not as good as they used to be. I did get a .67 in. group at 300 yd last fall. I use 95 gr Nosler BT's with 43.0gr Reloader 22. They crono at 3050 fps.

Remington 700 quality

No, probably not for awhile. I've purchased 4 new 700's in the last 4 years, and have bought at least 15 in the last 20 years. All have timney/jewell triggers, and that's all i've done w/them. The best shooting are ADL's, one in 7mmRM and a 22-250, 3/4moa any day kind of rifles. From the last 4, one is a sendero sfII in a 300wm, which is right around 1moa w/factory and slightly better w/hand loads. One WAS a 300 wmag sps, which was embarrassingly inaccurate. It's been sold. One is a sps and shoots great. The last is an XCR Tactical Long Range 700 in 300wm, which was shipped back to Remington after the bolt and 1st and only round that was fired couldn't be extracted. I think Remington will make this gun right, but I probably won't buy another.

Re: Remington 700 quality

i also bought a 700 xcr in 300 ultramag and it would not shoot. i sent to a good gunsmith who accurized it and it shoots about a 1 1/2' group now. i have two xcrs and have had similar problems. i wonder if it is caused by the hardening process.
