I did it.
Remarkable figures in the workup sheet:
Remington 700 - $700.
Caliber 7.62/.30 - Total with tax = $762.30
That is some coincidence.
I picked up a box of Fedral .308 168gr. Match.
I also have some Remington Match ammo and some Winchester 'white box' 147gr. to test fire it.
Gotta get this gun to the range ASAP after it gets in next week.
The gun will be fired in the original stock first.
The scope and mounts will be whatever I dig up out of the box until next month after the tax return.
Then I'll put together the stock, bipod, scope/base/rings, and sling I'm looking into.
'Paid in Full'!!!
Edited: The picture needed to be 'smaller'.
Congrats. Post some pics when you get it put together.
That's real nice. Super clean profile.
Any extra noise from the brake?
Any feeding problems with the DM? (I've got one in .338, but, no problems with it so far).
If I could show you a close-up of my empty wallet...my initial photos will be of a rather simple platform to start out with. The important part is to 'get on the paper' as soon as I can, regardless of how I 'see' it!
Thanks for the inspiration.
Hey Troy, thought you had pictures of mine until I saw the muzzle break. Same scope, same mount, same rings, but mine is 300WM and no break. What kind of scope covers are you using? Not happy with mine.
