    Ok i really dont have any extravagant gun in my safe to talk about so i want to hear about yours. Mine stay aroung .5 moa when i do my part and there still pretty much factory guns so I want you to tell me about your guns so i can sit and drool over them. If you can show pictures cuz i like to see the guns to but i mainly just want to read about them and how they shoot. I like to see what others have luck with so I can look into modifying my guns.

    Hi mate,

    My only rifle is a Howa 22.250HB
    Scope is a Zeiss 6.5-20x50 - excellent scope with very clear, sharp and bright
    Leupold Mounts

    Boyds Laminated Thumbhole Stock in the colour "Pepper"

    I handload for it and use Sierra 55gn Super Roo projectiles (Same as Sierra Game King) shoot brilliantly in my rifle.

    I also use 34.5gn AR2206H powder
    CCI Large Rifle Primers

    Cases are Rem and are FLR and fully prepped

    All the target are shot of a bipod and homemade sandbag and are shot at 100m

    This rifle is setup for fox and rabbit hunting, manly as a spotlighting setup or varminting, it weights about 5kg so not really suited as a walk about outfit.

    I previously owned Howa rifle and they have always been very reliable and have also been exstreamly accurate.

    This particular rifle is standard with the only thing done to it is I've had the trigger worked so it is set for about 8-10 oz letoff and zero creap, slight pressure and bang!! Beautiful.

    Would I buy another Howa - you bet your ass I would, never let me down and have always been great shooters, this one has even shot some .4" groups at 200m.

Its pretty heavy at 18.4 lbs And its only used off a bench or heavy duty tripod .The weight makes the recoil very nice about 25-06 level.Have taken Deer at 600yds, TOOK A GIANT HOG@ 814yds,AND a hog at 6tens of a mile ? just got in the truck o the mileage and rode over there.THIS is my baby but I'M building a 7STW NEXT.gun)

    700 VTR, started out life as a factory rifle, the only thing I didn't have anything done to was the barreled action. This was a "supposed to be budget" build over time. I just completely finished it this winter (the stock painting and the DBM).

    Rem 700 VTR in .308 Win.
    Tubb Speedlock firing pin and spring
    Callahan cocking piece and aluminum shroud
    Timney 1.5 - 4 lb. trigger
    Bell and Carlson Medalist vertical grip stock (DuraCoated)
    Allen stock pack
    Picatinny rails installed on front end of stock
    Turner AWS sling
    GG&G "Sling Thing" rail to sling adapter
    Wyatt's DBM (5 and 10 rnd mags) 5 rnd in gun in pic
    Leupold picatinny rail
    Burris XTR rings with picatinny tops
    Burris TAC30 4.5-14x42mm AO scope
    Sinclair offset scope level
    Harris BR-S bipod with Alpha Ind. pod lock on GG&G rail adapter

    4 shots @ 100 yds. = 0.221". This group was the first one after I had my stock painted, so it was not 100% sighted in. I just slapped scope back on and shot, I guess it wasn't really far off for taking off the scope and just putting it back on. I don't have the proof on me right now haha, but this rifle will shoot consistently about .75" @ 350 yds. (some smaller some bigger, smallest was about 0.541" @ 350 yds.). I have done it, with witnesses of course... I have shot this rifle out to 500 yds. and it performs very well.

    Awesome shooter mate! You can't complain about that sort of accuracy can you.

    I might have to do the same one day and build a custom rifle?

    Thanks for sharing.

    Put this one up a while ago but hell I like showing it off

    .358 Norma Magnum that started out as a Mauser 9x57 that had been in the family for about 60 yrs or so I'm told. Had the bolt face opened up to accept the magnum Cartridge and a #4 contour 24" barrel made by Bevan King. MPI custom fiberglass stock built for my arms and shoulder. Parker Hale magazine kit and a 2-10 x 50 Weaver sitting on a set of Leupold rings and mounts. I think there Leupolds anyways. Had this gun built over 10 yrs ago and I have forgotten some of the stuff I put on it. As far as accuracy it fills my freezer most years and the ones that it hasn't it was my fault. Have just ordered a painkiller muzzle brake from Kirby Allen and am awaitng delivery and looking forward to try it out. Havn't been shooting much in the past few years but that is changing as I am getting back into it with full gusto, have a very understanding wife that makes it possible.

    Nothing fancy in that pic, Cannon Rebel XSi, 18-55mm Cannon lens. I forget aperture, speed, and exposure settings for those pics because I just wanted something quick.
