I am about half tempted to just bank the money and leave my 700 alone. I was able to hit dead center, center mass, in a half siloette target, two out of two times, at 400 yards yesterday. All bone stock Rem. 700 SPS, 7mm mag with my new SEALs 6-24x50 scope, using factory Winchester 150 grn. Ballistic silvertip ammo. The bummer is i shot at two different targets, so i have no idea what my grouping would have been. I was just thrilled that i was able to hit a 2" x 3" rectangle twice at 400 yards.


Nah, I think I will still go ahead with the build,,,,,,the gun has to look cool, right?

Thanks CPT. That one place seems to be the only ones that carry the kydex cheek rest, and they are sold out. Oh well maybe they will get some in soon.

I dropped my stick off at the smith today. I went ahead and added a muzzle break to the build as well. They said it would be about 6 weeks before they are done. Man this is going to be a long christmas eve kinda wait......

JD, I am going looking for the books you recomended today. I want to see if i can find them locally before i have to order them off of the net. Thanks for the advice.

Only a six week wait??

For a new build in our shop it's over 14 months right now... Then again, this is only a 2 man and one lowly apprentice shop, not a production house.

I would be pretty happy with only six weeks to wait.

I am betting you can find Ultimate Sniper locally. Accurzing the Factory Rifle you are going to have to order - I will almost bet on it...

Are you going to put this cheek piece on the Remingtion factory synthetic stock?

What brand and model or type of barrel are you going to get?

JD, I came up empty on finding them locally, so I guess I will have to order them.
6 weeks is not bad, and Briely is an incredible company!!! I have never heard one thing bad about them.

MRM the smith had Lotham Walther barrels in stock so I went with that, ikt is going to be a bench rest light varmit. I went with a Bell & Carlson medalist varmit stock. I have read, and now been told by the gunsmith, that they are as good as H-S precision and I was able to save $200. In the end this is turning into an expensive build. So far the grand total minus optics is $2,871. I have been looking at a Nightforce 5.5-22x56.. I think that might do everything I want, so then I would have to add $1,810 to the build......geeezzzz it never ends!!!


Contour #2300: Bench Rest Light Varmint


ěD1 = 0.902"
ěD2 = 1.200"
L1 = 4.0"
L2 = 26" or 28"

Bell and Carlson is good stock. You will find with that barrel, that when it gets hot, your accuracy will remain much more consistant than your stock barrel you have now, and that is a good thing. If the barrel your getting is fluted that is even going to be better for heat dissapation. Night Force is top cabin glass, however, you might consider the same scope with a 50mm objective as opposed to a 56mm to keep the scope lower on the rifle.

And Jeeeze 6 weeks. That is cool.

The gunsmith I had spoken with here locally was going to take 6 months to build my rifle, but at the last minute he decided that he was so swamped with Remington warranty work that it might take near to over a year to build my rifle. So I opted for Krieger to not only place new barrel but to blueprint my reciever and bolt assembly. Then they're going to ship direct to McMillan stocks and McMillan will fit and bed stock and finish assembly of my parts into this rifle. The costs between the local gunsmith and Krieger and McMillan doing the work was litterally just a few dollars difference. Shipping and parcel insurance was the main cost increase and it really wasn't that bad.

Kreiger just called me as the barrel was ready and I have sent my rifle to them 3 days ago. They say is will be about 2 months for them to finish their part. I just ordered my stock from McMillan so it should be ready for my rifle when they recieve it form Krieger 2 months from now. Then, they say it will be about 2 more months before they are done. I just have to be patient now.

Probably work on some more mods on my Springfield M1A to while away the time.

In the time that I was shooting my Remmy 700 before I sent it to Krieger all my other rifles collected dust.
