Default Remington Model 700 -243 winchester

This morning i hit the range with the Remington Model 700 chambered in 243 Winchester. I really have not be able to shoot this rifle very much. It has less than 100 rounds through it and its almost 10 years old This is all changing quickly though.

The rifle is far from dead on, still need to make some adjustments and most importantly shoot it more.

I decided to set my target at 100 yards right off the bat. I had achieved great groups at 50 yards previously and decided I wanted to do multiple 100 yard shots since last outing I only brought 10 rounds thinking I had a full box.

Well enough babbling and here are the photos.

Here is my first 8 rounds at 100 yards.



Here are the next 7 with a couple minor adjustment. (I ran out of time right before the 8th)


I was shooting Winchester 100gr soft points. Overall I had a blast, and can
't wait to get some hand loads made up and really see what I can do. Thanks for reading this.

In my experience, Remington 700 rifle tend to favor lighter bullet weights for accuracy. Mine does pretty good with 100 gr bullets but it's out of this world with 70gr TNT hollow points or 70gr Ballistic Tips.
