Default Got to play with the new toy

In doing some trading, I picked up a beautiful older Remington 700 BDL in .222 Rem. with an excellent condition Weaver K-10-1 on it. Bought the dies and loaded about 40 rounds for it, but it sat around the house for about a month. I free-floated the barrel and bedded the action just for something to do. The old girl shot around .75 MOA from the get go. Can't wait to do a little load testing to see what it can really do. Also took out the SPS .308 to re-zero the scope as I added a little elevation to it. After the zero, it put three rounds into a .258 hole @ 100. Best group ever out of it, even if it was only three. It took a while as usual, as I haven't been shooting much lately due to the weather, and I had to get my head out of my butt and settle down. Overall, good day shooting. I think I'll keep that .222 around for a while.

Always fun to shoot a new stick. How about some pics.

Wow, sounds like it sure is accurate.

I agree, we need some pics!

Good shooting. But...

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

pictures-134-quick-e-mail-view.jpg Here's a pic of the 700 SPS. The Super Sniper has since been replaced with a Vortex Viper 6-24x44 SF scope. It is in a B&C Medalist A3 green web stock. She shoots very well, but I think my handloads have a little to do with it. The load I was shooting today was a new one. I think I'm keeping it. Don't have any pics of the .222 yet. My better half has the camera, and she's away at school(at 52). I'll try to get pics this weekend.
