Re: Best long range muzzy???

I ordered parts from arrowhead sporting goods to do a rem 700ml conversion a couple years ago for a friend. He is very happy with it. 45 cal shooting 195 barnes and 62g H4198. I have not checked velocity but it should be 2600-2700 fps. If one wanted to run duplex loads it could easily shoot same bullets over 2950 fps.

Gun/scope came to $2,800. There's a few xtras that weren't needed tho, McMillan stock,fluted bolt,barrel, handle & knob work, $550 scope. Those xtras will shave a few bucks!! I feel gun is worth every penny I spent. Went to range a few days ago and first shot(still loaded from last yr) cut top of bull and the next two made a 3 shot .6" group!

Not bad at all. Can't wait to see what you can do out past 300 yards. I started the ball rolling on one today. Found a stainless Rem 700ML in a local ad and sent Luke a message for more info.
