.243 /w Manners stock

Here's my first precision build, so far its shooting great with the factory barrel. Haven't hunted anything with it yet, but I might try a mule deer at 400+yds if a situation presents itself.

Rem 700 SPS Varmint
MCS T-1 stock
Badger Knob
Falcon Optics 4.5-18 56mm
EGW 20moa base
TPS 30mm rings
Tuned remington trigger 2 1/2lbs
Smallest group to date is 4" at 600yds with 107smk.




Looking at a 18" gong at 950yds.

Very nice, I love that stock. My 243 is a simular set up (1:8 twist Douglas). You may give the 108gr Berger BT (.546 BC) a try with H4350, they shoot really well. Just curious how long it took to get your stock after ordering it.

It took roughly 3 months from the day I called them.

Re: .243 /w Manners stock

that has the factory barrel right? and your running the 107 outa it? i go that same gun and i was wondering if you could share your load info with me, im tryin to work one up and lookin for ideas. I was thinkin with the 9 and 1/8 twist that it couldnt handle the 107 but maybe it can. thanks

Re: .243 /w Manners stock

Yes that is the factory 9 1/8 twist barrel. I was skeptical about shooting the 107's but I couldn't get any 95smk's in Canada. But they shoot really well. I'm pretty beginner at long range shooting and they seem to be staying under MOA at 1000yds. I've shot them to 1200yds so far. My skill level limits the bullet accuracy at that distance right now.

My load is 37.0gr of 4350 seated to 2.850. Approx 2850fps.

ADDED A COUPLE MORE PICTURES TO THE TOP
