Ten rounds from 900 yards.

Guess I'm just gonna have to use it for boat anchor material!

I'm sure somebody would buy it from you to use for making a lamp or something.

You got lots of moxie posting such a group :grin: I'm not sure it would even make a good boat anchor, doubt it would even hold the boat in place.

Excellent shooting by the way. (y)

I could use it for a door prop if you don't want it, PM me for my shipping address :grin: . Never was a fan of the 308 but did like the 7.62mm in the M60 and M14:mrgreen:
Nice shooting.

You have been through enough, just send it to me and I'll properly dispose of this rifle.
Nice shooting.

Image.308 Rem M700 VS by Sharps Man, on Flickr

Standard Remington M700 action/barrel. I bought the only left-handed action rifle Remington is putting out today with a heavy 26" barrel, tore it out of the stock it came in and bedded it into the stock you see in the photo. It's an HS Precision stock that Remington several years back offered which was called their VS model. I had one back at that time but in a weak moment let it get away from me. Stock has an aluminum bedding block as being as how I don't have a milling machine I couldn't bed but I have a friend that does and he routed the aluminum such that he could bed atop it and when finished the action was as smooth as glass!

Load I shot that group with is 47 grs. Varget behind the Sierra Palma 155 gr. bullet and I use F210M primers and Winchester cases which I neck turn to .012" thickness. I FL resize and last operation before I measure the powder charge is to run the necks of all the cases up into an expander plug that measures .3075". I found out quite some time back that this last process delivers very consistent neck tension.
