Re: Rockchuck Vs. 175 SmK

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.
