What did you do to your bolt action rifle today?
Let's start a "what did you do to your bolt action rifle" thread...
I started the "what did you do to your AR today" thread and it was a success...so I thought I'd start this one so we can share ideas
Here we go..
So today I added quite a bit to my brand new Remington 700 SPS tactical AAC-SD (.308) today
I got all this stuff in the mail and it was so hard to wait to put it all together..
I added a Badger Ordnance one piece scope base, an Advanced Armament flash hider, a Triad Tacticak stock pack, a KRG bolt nob and a Harris bipod..
All I'm missing is a scope and scope rings..
I have them (sort of)....my significant other has purchased them for me for Xmas, I just have to wait until Dec. 25th to open them..
So coming soon is a Leupold VX R 4-12x50mm and Badger Ordnance Max 50 30mm scope rings..
I am SO excited to have it all together...also, I purchased 250 rounds to break her in ;)
Keep us updated on your bolt action rifle builds...
Whether it be sniper guns, hunting guns, competition rifles, etc...
Well this works for me,.Today i done my first reloads for the Remington 700 sps .270win , I used once fired winchester brass an 'partially full length resized' them , I used AR2208 (Varget) in 45gr of and 130gr Corelokt projectiles.
I loaded up 4rounds of 43gr to get me on paper and then 5x 44gr & 45gr, although 46gr is max i didnt bother trying today.
At 50m -/+ a bit, i was able to shoot a tight 5 shot group with 45gr an settled on that for further testing at 100m & chronoed.
pretty happy with the results.
I don't know about today but yesterday evening I carried my Remington 5R .308 deer hunting. I guess that's more of a "what I did with my bolt action" rather than "to". :)
Here's a picture of the field I hunt at daylight from about 2 weeks ago:
That's almost 400 yards on that side of the stand. I'm shooting 180gr Gameking reloads. I've got a 4x14x42 Burris on the 5R and other than that it's pretty much stock.
Buy it ...
After re-finishing the stock on a newly acquired Mosin Nagant 1938 91/30, I took her out to the range and did some shooting. Best bolt I have ever worked is on this rifle - and we are talking about against 98 Mauser actions I have owned, Remington 700s as well. A luck of the draw kind of thing to be sure. Alas, the barrel is not a Remington 700, but it was never meant to be (despite what is shown in 'Enemy at the Gates)
I let my bolt action rifle rest today. - Yesterday it got a pretty thorough workout as I tried some new loads.
While it was resting today I looked at new barrels... It's a Savage so changing barrels and calibers back and forth is not a major project.
Right now it's a 243 with a 24" heavy barrel... I'm thinking of a 21" sporter barrel in either 260 Remington or 338 Federal. The 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge looks interesting - but I don't see and Savage barrels out there chambered that way.
The barrel channel in the stock will be extra-roomy for a Sporter barrel, but I don't see any harm in that.

You probably won't find one in Sporter contour that's in stock,but any barrel maker will make you one.Just be prepared to wait for a couple month's to receive it.
["Best bolt I have ever worked is on this rifle-"]
I got a Polish M44 with a great action, also.
I think most Mosins, when new, were surprisingly
able and accurate guns.
I camoed the stock of my Savage .223 with some camo duct tape,I know it's not the best way but hey,it works.
.....never heard of gun wrap before?!
