    Thanks to everyone that helped set this thing up. Except that the bolt is on the wrong side, it does well under 0.5" at 100 yards as long as I am not a spaz. Took it to a couple hundred yards the other day with a bunch of soda cans and had a blast. Feeding it 168gr Federal Match, and no need to try anything else.

    For my break-in, I did 1 clean, 2 clean, 3 clean, 4 clean, then 5 clean a few times. Then I've just been shooting the heck out of it. After the switch to Fed Match, the groups tightened up like crazy.

    308 Rem. 700 LTR
    Badger 20 moa base (bedded the base myself)
    Vortex rings
    5-20 Vortex HD scope
    Timney trigger (dropped in easily) @ 2.5 Lbs
    Harris 6-9 bipod

    Next step is to pull the weight of the trigger down a little, but other than that, couldn't be happier. Next time I go out I found a spot with 300-400 yards.

    Thanks guys!
