    Picked up a Rem 700 SPS Varmint today,

    Threw my SS 16x MQ on it

    Then found a 20 min rail for it

    Need to take a pic of it with the rail and the scope...

    Shoot it at 100 yards, with some cheap PPU 168gr ammo

    The trigger SUCKS, the bullet hole in the right was ME

    Here is the trigger pull weight

    Funny pull weight pics! Add fixing the trigger to the purchase price. Looks like a good shooter.

    Went out and shot it at 935 yards today, only had 7 rounds left, hit it twice. Did not know the rang while shooting, had to leave a car where we shot from and range back to it lol.

    Video edited out misses to save time

    Nice rifle Clayne, but i agree with the others, ditch the shitty stock and get an XLR Industries or any other you like and trigger. I need to come out there with you!!

    Hmmmm, guess I'm odd man out on this one.

    If it shoots to your satisfaction with that stock there's no sense in changing it.

    I've had 3 stocks on a remmy 338 RUM. Shoots best with a $40 tupperware stock I stuck on it to try.

    Noticeably better than the pillar/skim bedded stock which shot darn good.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Yes and no JMO
    the stock may shoot fine, but the feel is no comparison and that alone can make a better shooter with the tool at hand but again JMO

    Went out and did some shooting at 200 yards, cross wind of 20-30 mph. shot 42, 42.5, 43, 43.5 gr of Varget pushing a 168gr sierra matchking.

    This was the best one 43.5 gr I would like to think the flyer was me... on inch with out it.

    its a start i guess....
