After several months of waiting, my rifle is back from the gunsmith. Also, I've had some opportunity to do some shooting with it. Here are the specs and results:
Action: Trued-up Remington 700
Stock: HS Precision
Scope: Leupold VXII 3x9
Barrel: 24" #4 douglas taper, 1:9 twist
Trigger: stock remington, tuned to a crisp 3lbs.
Gunsmith: Jim Hart with Hart Rifle Barrels
Here's how it looked when it arrived from the 'smith
and after an initial coat of brown paint. Additional camo painting to come.
How does it shoot? how about .375" at 100 yards and 1.25" at 200. If I had not pulled the 3rd shot at 200 the group would have been <.75". (the holes in the top right of the target are from another shooter)
Then 4.6" at 600 (the two other spots are from another shooter)
Although I don't have pics, it shot 7" at 800 and 10" at 1000.
All this with factory loaded Remington 150grain PSP bullets!
Finally, while I did the shooting, much of the credit belongs to Hart Rifle Barrels for building a great platform. They did great work and reasonably priced - I would recommend them to anyone.
