    A bad day indeed, for the chucks.

    Gaprecision (smithed) .308 rifle
    rem700 action
    Bartlein 1-11.25 24" #7 barrel
    McMillan A5 75%0d 25% bl
    Leupold MK44.5-14x50 TMR reticle
    USO base/burris x-tact rings

    Its a shooter. this is the average group @ 100 yards. I think It can do better with better/more consistent brass. This is LC match brass, the consistency isnt there but I have a ton of it so it works.
