Actually that is where he sits when we ride I do everything else he trusts me to keep him in place even when he falls asleep.

You asked so here you go...

I started with stock NIB Rem 700 LSS in 375RUM



Had gunsmith shorten barrel to 21" glass bead it and install NECG Masterpiece front banded sight I installed NECG red fiber optic front sight blade (have spares in case one ever breaks).



I glass bed the stock & ground/installed Kick-Eez recoil pad



I installed Leupold QWR bases and mount scope with low QRW rings then bought a VX3 2.5-8X36mm B&C reticle scope but when I started loading with RL17 powder and saw the velocities/accuracy I was getting I switched over to the VX3 4.5-15X40mm B&C reticle scope.

Whoa could not put this last pic in to the above post something about to many images.

I was sighting in the ghost ring sight with my 350gr Barnes TSX @ 2450fps loads (first ones imported into Canada) I pushed them to 2520fps but decided I didn't need/want that kind of recoil slowed me down to much for a second shot.

Here is a 50 yard target the lower hole/shot was a test shotafter seeing where it hit I adjusted the ghost ring sight up and shot this 3 shot group.

I have repeated this group many times now.



I looked but I can't find a pic of my groups with the scope installed shooting the 260gr Accubonds guess I'll have to fix that some day.

I'm heading to the range for a bit today but won't be taking this rifle I am sighting in my Rem 700 LSS in 30-06 that I had shortened to 20" and mounted the VX3 2.5-8X36mm scope on.

I am also taking the XCR-L I switched back to the 223 conversion kit on the weekend and need to sight it in with a Leupold Vari X 4-12X40mm scope that I had a LR reticle installed in.
