    Well folks it's been a long haul since I started getting into this LR shooting in early summer! Had to find the caliber and rifle package, decide on a scope, bipod, shooting rest and lots and lots of reloading!!! Well I'm nearly finished. I know I need to shoot at the long distances I intend on shooting but dang if I am not impressed with what I have so far - a 3 shot group one holer just like Michael's!!!

    Load Data:

    Rifle: Remington 700 Sendero Stainless Fluted
    Scope: Sightron SII Series 6-24X Mil-Dot
    Mounts and Rings: Leupold STD Stainless
    Case: Remington 2.838" Once Fired, Uniformed Primer Pockets and De-Burred Flash Hole
    Primer: Federal Gold Medal Match 215 LR Magnum
    Powder and Charge: Hodgdon's H-1000, 88.2 grains
    Bullet: You guessed it Sierra Match Kings 168 Grain
    OAL: 3.650"

    Just goes to show all the new guys that if you are willin to take the time, effort and money, you can get deadly accurate even with factory rifles.

    After all the hard earned dough I've dumped into my custom rifles, you guys keep on producing factory rifles that shoot just as good. Sometnings wrong here. [​IMG] [​IMG]
