    I am fairly new to long range shooting but really like it so far. I did this group with my Remington 700 ADL 7mm Rem. Mag and my 150gr. Sierra Match King Reloads. I havent even measured the groups because I am not familiar with how to do it. I just use a dime as a reference at a 100 yards. But anyway this is what it did at 500 Yards. Oh its a little beat up cause I had that thing in my wallet for a while, but I shot that group earlier this year

    Looks like horizontal stringing to me, you should think about re-barreling or maybe trading it in all together for something that can really drive tacks.

    Oh, I just noticed that's a penny, not a dime: you're going to need a better scope.

    Seriously, good work. I would be happy to get groups like that at 100 yards out of some of the rifles I've owned!

    It never ceases to amaze me how many here cannot hit those coins.







    In all seriousness, good job. Now can you duplicate it?

    Not an expensive rig, but I love it. We did a little experimenting with it. My friend trued all the surfaces. But we had to replace the barrel because a local gunsmith screwed it up when putting it together. So thats why it has a stainless barrel and a matte receiver. (The matte factory barrels were not available at the time) I just have a Leupold VX 1 4X12X40mm scope. I free floated the barrel myself. I adjusted the factory trigger to 2lbs.

    As for the bullet spec...

    Case: Federal
    Primer: Winchester Large Magnum
    Powder: IMR 4831 Weight: 61.9grs
    Bullet: 150gr. Sierra Match King
    Case Lenght: 3.300

    Nice group!

    If I figured correctly, it is 1.94" at 500 yards. You've got a shooter.
