Re: Remington VLS & VSF...big difference?

Targetbuster,
I too have a 243 VLS but i have swapped it into a PSS stock.
Its wonderfully accurate, much better then i thought.

The picture shows the results of a warm load of 47grns H4350ext and a 70grn SMK.

The English 5p piece is .705" diametre.

Here i am working up the load.
I hope you enjoy your VLS as much as i do.

Centre Punch.

    Ramses, I have a good friend who tried a shaw barrel on his 6.5-284 and was not at all pleased with it. He switched to a different company and had tremendous results out of his broughton barrel in a 6.5-284. I would go with a Broughton, Lilja, Shilen, or any other top end producer.

    I recive my vls .243 tommoroow, but I have added $100 AUS to get it with the HS stock (not sure if this was a good move or not) They are a great looking gun with that laminate wood.

    Alos have a rem 700 PSS .300 RUM coming !! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

    Oh, you VLS owners, do you get copper fouling the last .5" of barrel at muzzle end? I do and its a pain to remove. And its only at that spot after shooting.

    [/ QUOTE ] I have that on my VLS and VS. Must be a barrel thing. It's annoying, but does not seem to hurt accuracy.
