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'.

Troy,
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.

The brake stabilizes the rifle enough that you can watch the shots impact in the scope. It isn't especially loud from the shooter's point of view, but like any brake, folks on the side wish you were further down on the line.

Did I mention the sickening accuracy?

The magazine KING with only one magazine? Oh the horror!

No problems with the detachable mag, though I don't remove it often, as I only have one. When I bought it, most of them came that way. I do need to get some spares, though.
