If I do my part it will shoot 5 shot 1 1/4 inch groups at 500 yds. I have shot a couple smaller ones and bigger ones but that is about average, and that is prone off the bipod. I guess I got lucky and got a good barrel.
45 grains of varget in lapua brass is what worked best in my Rem 700 sps with a 26 inch barrel. My next best choice for that combo was 4064. Didnt see much difference in accuracy with the 168s but the 175 smks prefered the varget. I also noticed a slightly smoother recoil impulse with varget and the 175s.
