Hey guys, I'm new to the forums here, but I've been lurking around for a while now! Some awesome looking rifles in this thread, thought I would add a few pictures of my humble precision rifle...
Remington 700P LTR .308 (20" fluted barrel)
Grayboe Renegade Stock that I painted a nice flat gray
Mesa Precision Arms DBM
Seekins Rail, Seekins 34mm Low Rings
Bushnell DMR II
Seekins picatinny bipod rail with Atlas Bipod
I've recently starting hand loading for it and have been having good results with 168gr SMK's, Varget, CCI #200s and federal brass that I saved from factory gold medal match... I'm averaging about 0.5-0.75 MOA, the picture below is one of my better 5 shot groups @ 100 yards.
I do have a custom build in the works that I should have in a few months or so, but of course I've already started to put together another build in my head while waiting... I'm sure you guys can relate to this!
First post back on the old 'Hide since the switch back.
Rem 700 AAC-SD 20" .308
Badger Ordnance 20 MOA rail
Bushnell ERS 3.5-21x50 in ARC medium rings (need low rings)
KRG Whiskey 3 Gen 4
Alpha Industries Type 2 mags (looking to switch to AICS or Magpul)
Only gripe is I wish I had another 4-6" of barrel.
Ruger American Predator 6.5 Creedmoor
MDT LSS Chassis (FDE) with Ruger AI Mags
Ruger Precision Stock
Ruger Precision Bolt Handle
Athlon ARES BTR 4.5-27x50mm FFP MIL in Seekins Precision Low Rings and Vortex Caps

Very nice. I meant to add i'm running 130gr Hybrids. I'm always astounded by this round. I have several friends running 38.1gr of varget with the 140gr and 130gr hybrid and the brass just holds up. I'm sure that's well around 65k PSI or more but it just doesn't seem to care.
Build currently underway for me by Spartan Precision Rifles in San Jose...
McMillan A5 Carbon Ambush adjustable
Proof Research 20” 1/8 CF 6.5x55 SE (6.5CM isn’t easy to come by in the U.K.)

Trued and blueprinted Rem 700 SA

I need to work on my photography skills, apparently.

I was not in the market to buy a rifle complete, I was going to put one together. But, this ticked every check mark on my list and no wait on having it put together by a smith. I have been impressed with how much easier this is to shoot than my previous set up, and its more accurate. I have been consistently shooting smaller groups during practice. All budget money is being spent on training this year, aside from reloading components.
