Trading a SIG 229 Dark Elite for this tomorrow. It is a Remington 700 VSSF II which has a Leupold Vari-X III 6.5-20x40mm AO scope mounted on it.
Always wanted a Remington 700 and figured the .223 would be perfect for the target shooting at 100-200 yards I would be doing.
My question is what type of ammo should I start with in this? I want some range ammo to play with, but also want some decent match grade factory ammo that doesn't break the bank. If i'm a good shot from a bag with no wind can I expect a .5" accuracy at those distances or is that asking too much.
It is a 1 in 12 twist rate out of a 26" barrel. Any help is appreciated.
This is the ammo I was going to test. Is the 69gr ammo going to be too heavy?
