    New Project: Long Distance Plan - by Rem 700 5R Mils Spec Barrel

    I finally got back into the bolt action rifles again. I am looking forward to breaking in this new project. A Rem 700 5R MilSpec Barrel with a Harris 9-13" Adjustable Bipod and a Millet 6-25x56mm Long Range Scope with MilDot Reticle and Turrets.

    Still in the box: Stainless trigger and magazine Assy with Black Teflon coating with detachable 10 round magazine and a Timney trigger. I want get a baseline set before I swap out the trigger and trigger & mag assy.

    Now I have to take it to the range and break it in... then she'll be ready for some range time on the weekend!

    That is a truly beautiful Remington. Is it a .308 Winchester?

    Is that the 35mm tube scope that included the mounts?

    I like the stock on it, it is pretty.

    Looks like it should be a sweet shooter, enjoy.

    As you probably know, the 700 is the basis for one of the finest sniper weapons in the work, the M40 series rifles.

    What mag assy are you planning on putting on it? I also have a 700 that I would like to put an removable mag on. Badger Ordinance is $400 and I am not sure if I want to spend that kind of money. I have heard a lot of good things about Wyatt, so I might give them a try.

    It is the 35MM tube. Tons of light. That photo does not have the shade on it.

    I do that's one of the main reasons I picked the 700.

    There was a reason I asked about the scope. Just wondering if you had a similar experience with the mounting or has Millett/Bushnell corrected the problem.

    Now you need to head off to Storm Mountain Training Center in WV for their Long Range Rifle course and learn all the good stuff about how to actually hit things (reliably) out to 800 yards. My long-term shooting buddy invested in a Rem 700 with the 5R rifling, and a very pricey Nightforce scope to go with it. He's a highly competent shooter, but he'll be the first to admit that getting solid hits out past the first few hundred yards was a substantial learning experience.

    (He also mentioned that with his $4K rig he felt like a piker compared to a lot of the other shooters in the class!)

    Do you know off -hand how many MOA of elevation adjustment that scope has? I wonder if it has a lot.

    Heavy barrel 700's are sweet. I have one in .223, but it is just a plain factory 700 VS SF, except that I did have a Jewell trigger put in it.

    airslot I didn't have any issues mounting it with the 35mm rings that came with the scope but after getting to the range this weekend I have to send the scope back due to the windage turret binding and not providing clean crisp clicks on turning. :(

    I have not verified it yet but the manufacturer says it comes with the equivalent of 140 MOA of adjustment. The reason I say equivalent is mine is in MIL not MOA.

    Well I finally bought a pair of rings that are the right size. The 35mm rings that came with the scope were way too tall. It's my understanding (link) that when Millet outsourced them and spec it at .95" the manufacturer measured from the bottom of the scope versus the centerline.

    These Vortex rings are much smaller, w/o the lug and get the scope right down there where you can get a good cheek weld and sight picture. The new rings came in Monday and I took her out to dial it in. As you can see three rounds (Fed Gold Match 168g BTHP) practically in the same hole. :)

    Glad to see you got it dialed in. Lots of fun when everything works as it should.

    Nice looking stick!

    I'm working on a similar setup with the SPS AAC SD action/barrel. I Was just going to pick up a set of the low rings from Millett at Optics Planet when I get my LRS1 back from Bushnell, but I'll take a look at the Vortex rings.

    Who's stock is that?

    I was looking at the Wyatt mag assembly also for future upgrade.

    Again, I look forward to your report on your set up.
