Hi everyone. As requested in this thread here is a quick range report of my new LTR in .308. Scope is Leupold VXIII 2.5-8X36 in leupold mounts.
88313
This pic shows the rifle next to my ruger RSI in .308. You can see how short the remington is. The LTR weighs more and has a much heavier barrel. It feels top and forward heavy which isnt a problem. I love the stock. It shoots like a pussycat compared to the ruger - but you still know that you're shooting .308. Everything on the rifle is black including the bolt. I need a sling for this rifle - any suggestions ?

I only had 3 varieties of factory hunting ammo on hand which were shot using a rest at a 50m indoor range. Left targets = Highland AX 150gr, middle targets = Winchester Super X 150gr and right targets = Federal Premium Tactical 130gr.

It seemed to group best with Highland ammo which is the cheapest. The 130gr Federal grouped well but shot a bit lower. I forgot to put a scale in the photos but it was shooting about 1MOA. Anyway I was really happy with the groups and the comfort of shooting this rifle. The scope is awesome but i still need to do a little fiddling to get the zero just right. My calculations showed that 3.5cm high at 50m should give me a zero of 200m and a MPBR of 250m. I want to see how it does with match ammo and at longer distances. Im going to start reloading for .308 so hopefully I will get some really good groups in the future. Very happy with the rifle so far. Highly recommended.
