AMZ, how many rounds through your rifle? What are you feeding it for ammo? I'm always curious how much range time SRs see.

I've got a heavy match which I bought gently used 3 years ago. I've shot it more this year by a great margin than the first 2 years combined. 500rds+ and counting this summer, ~400 in the previous 2 years. It has been a great rifle so far.

I used mine at a precision rifle course this summer where it did very well. 226 rounds fired in 2 days.

O2, have you shot that beast yet?

nope, works had me busy as hell since I got it and I'm waiting on my Kenton Industries TTC's to come in (one for 168gr Rem. HPBT and another for M118LR)
This weekend is a no go as well do to a previously planned white water rafting trip we're taking to W. VA.

The rifle has about 400-500 rounds through it. For most of that , I ran Port. surplus. Aussi surplus for the rest.

Function is perfect, accuraccy is excellent too.

I am still looking for the perfect ammo for this rifle.

What are you guys using???

I shoot only match ammo in my SR. I've shot Rem 168 match, some Black Hills 168, and reloads using the Sierra 168BTHPM. I'm in the process of loading some 168 AMAX now.

Interesting on using milsurp. My 1998 vintage rifle states in the owners manual: CAUTION: The SR-25 rifle system is deliberately designed with a firing chamber of absolute minimum dimensions...

It goes on to recommend Rem and Winchester 168ammo. Reloads are also a no-no, but it shoots my handloads very well (I take care in assembling them).

That is a 'tac' saftey from CMMG.com

It's an ergo design that adds a little leverage in a safety on-off transition.

You can easily flick it on and off by giving a thumbs up or down signal. Its very comfy,and a well made accessory.

18" on the SR-25. Is that factory? If not, how did you replace the barrel and extension?

The person who owned it before me never fired it.

He toof off an inch and did a bad recrowning job, or maybe a bad threading job , or whatever,in whatever order.

So ,when I got the rifle there was a bur on the crown. I had my Gunsmith recrown,and and after all was said and done, we lost another inch.

With the Smith flashhider , it makes a total of 20 inches, which for a short guy like me, is juuuuust right.
