Not quite a "varmint rifle" because of the caliber, basically similar to the military M-40. I found a NEW Rem. 700P ("Police" Remington Law Enforcement - Rifles - Model 700P Standard) "The standard Model 700P features an H-S Precision® composite stock reinforced with Du Pont Kevlar and fiberglass. They'll stay dimensionally stable in any weather and under the worst tactical situations. The stock is laid up around an aircraft-grade aluminum bedding block that runs up the entire length of the receiver. It has a textured, black, non-reflective finish and comes with sling swivel studs." 700P .308 Win. 9lbs 26" bbl. 12" twist 4 rd. mag. cap. Ordered a Leupold® Mark 2™ Long Range/Tactical Riflescope from Cabela's 1/4 MOA "clicks" 6-18X power Matte Mil-dot 40mm objective 4.7"-3.7" eye relief 13.5" length 14.5oz. 14.5'-6.6' Field of view @ 100 yds. 4" Leupold Lens Shade Leupold Matte Ring Base Leupold Matte Low Rings Leupold Neoprene scope cover I have a two rifle large alum. carry case, and slings coming out my ears. I have a Caldwell Rock bench rest. I'm going to pass on the Harris bipod. Orded a .308 cal. mandrel for my Sinclair Neck Turning Tool. We have the primer pocket reamer, primer hole reamer, case trimmer, deburring tools, digital scales . . . Last time I was doing this on a Rem. 700 PSS in .223 Ackley, I was getting 0.22 MOA at 100 yds off the bench, when the weather was right. Here's a FIVE SHOT group on a 1" dia. circle from those days. I need to get back at it.
