    Nice look rifle.
    I just got set up with a Remington 700 243. win for varmints. Topped with a 6.5-20x44 Vortex shooting 80 grain soft points. I am getting her sighted in on Saturday and yote hunting monday :)

    I was just wondering what size bipod you bought. Im debating right now what size to get for prone?

    my $.02: Most bipod mfrs make a 9-13" or 8-13" range and from my own experiences that works great for prone or bench shooting.

    Nice rifle! I am a big fan of the .308 win. If you would like some advice on loads to try that will really boost performance, shoot me a pm.

    As for bipods, depends on your build. I'm 5'9" and use the 6-9" as it allows me to shoot very low profile, as it aids in stability. However my buddy is 6'3" and he has both a 6-9 and 9-13 depending on the situation. However 9/10 times the 9-13 works for him.

    Got one in the discontinued 6.5x.284 with the fluted 24" barrel. Shoots all my loads under one inch. Will put the 130 berger under 1/2" three shots. Great rifles!!

    Anyone make an after market stock? Or a clip, possibly a five rounder?
