Re: A Store Bought Long Range Rig
I have store bought a large number of rifles over my 67yrs, and usually stick with Remington 700s. Recently I bought another Rem. 700, the 5R, in 308. Unbelievably accurate, comes with proper stock and has the twist to stabilize a 175gr bullet. I'm into the .75s at 200yd just working up loads!!! I am using one of my old Redfield 6-18 scopes. Once I get the best load, I expect this to drop to .5 or .6 at 200yd. Out of the box, the trigger is a solid 5-6#, and for all practical purposes, not adjustable - look elsewhere on the net and you can find an explanation on how to make the trigger a true 2.5# trigger that breaks perfectly and consistently.
