my 2 favorites... front is a rem 700 vls in 308, leupold 8.5-25 lrt, harris bipod, 20 moa base, warne rings, and everything else i thought i could stuff into it- my 1000 yard gun. it shoots incredibly tight. somewhere on thr is a 500 yard group i posted it shot. i have killed prairie dogs w/ it beyond 850 yards.

the back one is my 9-twist ar-15 in 223, harris bipod attached to the float tube, cabela's alaskan guide 6.5-20x44, a.r.m.s. quick detach, warne rings. it is my close range gun - 500 and in, though i have taken prairie dogs w/ it beyond 500 (sometimes you can't help it - just have to take the shot). somewhere on thr is a pic of its grouping abilities at 100.

Rambosky, what is the make on that bolt rifle and what mods did you do to it or did it come like that?

It started out as a Rem 700P in .308. I ordered a McMillan A4 stock with molded in camo. I bought adjustable cheek piece (That's I'm going to install this week end). This is the same stock that McMillan sells to the Marines to use on their M40A3 sniper rifles.

I then sent it to G.A. Precision who trued the action, installed the SSG oversized bolt knob, installed a SS match Mike Rock 24", 5R, M24 profile barrel coated black, tuned the trigger to 2lbs, and had them pillar bed the action and the stock in Marine Tex.

It also sports Badger 20 deg scope base, Badger Max 50 rings and Badger/AICS DBM trigger guard. Uses the AICS 5 and 10 round mags.

I have a Nightforce NXS 4.5-15X50 Mil Dot scope on top.

Thanks for asking.

jmmIf I remember right, I only managed to get about 2 inch groups at 50 yards using Barnaul 123 gr ammo. I don't like to make excuses, but I should probably find a better rest than the tailgate of my truck. I'll do more experimenting this year.

This pre-ban Colt Competition HBAR is basically my fun gun, since I retired from the military I don't have to rely on one anymore. Great for punching holes in paper, and maybe the occasional prairie dogs. ;)

I do rely on this to get the job done, however. An Armscorp/H&R M14NM w/Krieger medium barrel; unitized gas system, ARMS #18 scope mount, USGI stock w/Devcon bedding:

Still plenty accurate to get the intended job done.

For long range work, nothin' says lovin' like a WWII Z-prefix 1903A4 Remington sniper, as restored to original condition from a Bubba job by yours truly:

http://mauser98.com/03a4bench.jpg

While not benchrest grade, I reamed the chamber on the tight side of SAAMI for .30-06, using a pull-through match reamer by hand, and glass-bedded it after installing a Timney Featherweight trigger. 3/4" groups at 100 yards with 168gr MatchKing handloads are fairly easy to do, even with the vintage 2.5x scope. I take this old girl deer and elk hunting without qualms.

In a concession to more modern times, here's a .308 Winchester Remington 700PSS in the original green H-S Precision stock. It has a Shilen trigger, Gre-Tan modified striker, Armstech floorplate extension, Leupold QRW bases and rings, Sightron 4-16x42 Mil-Dot scope, and was skim bedded before torqueing to 65 inch-pounds. Best groups to date put the rounds inside 1/4" at 100 yards, using Lapua brass and Sierra 155gr Palma bullets on top of IMR4895. I'm currently working with Lapua D46 rebated boattails for work past 500 yards.

For example, a 1969-vintage Belgian Browning BAR, w/French walnut stock, and a vintage Weaver 3-9 auto rangefinder scope can place .30-06 rounds in tight groups, while looking good doing so:

Gewehr98, did you do any work on the GI .30-06 rifle stocks to get them to look that way? If so, very nice work; if not, lucky man. Beautiful rifles either way.

It's a replica "C-stock", as supplied by DuPage Trading Company. I used my original Springfield 1903A1 rifle, below, as the dimensional pattern for the replica stock, which came somewhat oversized. I planned on returning it, it was covered in a sticky combination spray-on polyurethane and brown stain mess. (DuPage, are you reading this? Get a hint!) But when I cleaned on it some, that beautiful grain line going down the right side through the pistol grip and back through the buttstock caught my fancy. The finish is simply Minwax Mahogany stain/sealer, and several dozen coats of boiled linseed oil, with a 0000 steel wool rubdown back to the wood each time the next coat dried. It took several months to get there, and the gloss is purely a function of the Birchwood Casey stock wax I applied - it's really a satin finish.

http://mauser98.com/1903a1.jpg

The stock on the M1 Garand I pictured in my previous posting above was a bit neglected as it came from the DCM, so it got the steam iron/wet rag treatment, then the same boiled linseed oil and steel wool treatment.

As a matter of procedure, almost every time I either restore or complete an unfinished rifle stock, it ends up with a hand-rubbed boiled linseed oil finish. It takes a long time, but in the end, I feel it's well worth it. No polyurethane, Tru-Oil, or LinSpeed for me, thank you.
