Alright fellas let’s see em! Every so often this thread rolls up so I think it’s about time. Let’s see the most accurate rifle in the arsenal and preferably a picture of the groups the rifle is capable of. Any custom work done or specific loads would probably help all us learn a little something. I’m sure some of you boys have some crazy stuff out there. That group was 8 shots in a row. Mine is as follows;

Specs:
R700 SPS
308
B&C Tactical Vertical Grip w/Aluminum Block
EGW 20 MOA
Burris XTR 30MM
Wo Tac 4X14x50

Custom:
Receiver face trued
Receiver threads trued
Lugs lapped
Match chamber cut
Front portion of the receiver/recoil lug bedded
Trigger job/new spring

Load Specs:
Winchester Brass
CCI BR-2 LR Primer
IMR 4895---43.8gr
Sierra Matchking 168gr
COL---2.81

I don't have any photos of groups, because I typically forget the camera (better than forgetting ammo ;)), and most often shoot at steel (it lasts longer than paper :p), but below is a photo of my LRPR. It is a Desert Tactical Arms SRS chambered for .300WM.

http://i642.photobucket.com/albums/uu141/Maverick223_album/IMG_4516.jpg

It comes standard with a Krieger CM heavy profile (proprietary) fluted barrel, it was topped with a PRH 5-25x56mm optic sitting in DTA one-pc. rings with a 40MOA taper, and is sitting on a GG&G HD bipod. No modifications have been made to this rifle (and I rather doubt that I will). I am currently shooting 190gr. SMKs, 208gr. A-Maxs, and 240gr. SMKs seated just inside the rifling and have been able to achieve 0.5MOA groups from a cold bore when I do my job. Needless to say I like it a lot. :D

i just so happened to take a few pics today. only a three shot group. my favorite part about the groups like this is that they are done with $15 prvi partizan from a bipod cold bore. my reloading equipment is in the mail, can't wait to see what she can really do!


here are the details on the rifle, but it's essentially a stock 700p with the trigger down to 3lbs.

I notice Desert Tactical utilizes these quite often with rifles chambered in 338lap. They actually have a video of the reenactment of the newest sniper confirmed kill at 2700yds. They use Mavs exact rifle setup, but with S&B glass.

well, i only have 1 match's worth of experience with this one myself so far, but i really like the extra sling holes on the right side, and the general fit and quality and weight. the camo job looks like 2nd graders with finger paint. i think it's worthless, but it was "in stock" so i took it. and the 2 thumbscrews that hold the cheekpiece in place kept coming loose in the match causing it to wiggle around on me. i also need to take some of the spacers out of the butt. once i get used to it, i think i'll like it a lot.

I've looked and I haven't found anything. This smith just mentioned something to me about it and it supprised me because I though I would have heard something about it by now.I did a bit of research on Premier Reticles, and it seems that when the original owner passed Leupold discontinued using their service for magnification and reticle upgrades, in turn the new owner and son of the original one, decided to produce his own complete optic. This is the one I have, in fact I have one of the first (no. 257). Leupold really screwed up when they decided to run the bus over PR, but in return we are now able to purchase an optic of superb quality that is nearly 100% made in the USA (the optical engineers that helped with the design were imported...they came from S&B; the glass probably came with them, but I don't know for certain).

Exactly what this smith said. He used to send them for reticle upgrades. I guess there started being a little battle when things didn't go so smooth. If the reticle had issues they were then Leupolds responsibility and Leupold didn't like that.

Well, I don't shoot groups as an activity. Perhaps in my retirement. ;) I'm not a benchrest shooter and to be honest I often lack the patience to shoot great 5-shot groups. But I do shoot them from time to time. The lower group on the photo below shows five impacts in a four-inch spread from a .338LM AI rifle at 940 yards. (The top group is 3 rounds from a TRG-42; at #4 its scope base came loose and the round was off the target entirely.)

http://demigodllc.com/photo/TRG42AWSM/smaller/D100_4753_img.jpg (http://demigodllc.com/photo/TRG42AWSM/?small=D100_4753_img.jpg)

If I am really proofing a rifle system, I'll shoot 5- shot groups, and from the rifles in question, they tend to look pretty much like the 3-round pictures, just with a little more ragged hole. The .308 group posted in the first photo was actually shot for the purpose of confirming zero (these were shots #3, 4, and 5; scope adjustments were done after #1 and #2).

Still waiting for Don, Zak, 1858, and a couple others to show off their beast!

Here's my F-Class (F-TR) 600 yard target from last month with 20 shots for record in 20 minutes using my "tack driver". I shot a 196-6X which is High Master. I settled down after the 5th shot and only had one shot out of the ten ring for the remaining 15. That 13th shot was shooter aiming error :banghead:. I'm pleased (not thrilled) with the vertical spread of 3.771" which is 0.600 MOA. My match load has an SD of 12 fps. I need to get that down to 6 fps and am working on doing just that for a big match this coming Saturday (F-Class mid-range prone course = 15 shots for record in 15 minutes at 300 yards, 500 yards and 600 yards).

I've made a few changes to my "tack driver" and don't have a current photo. I'm going to the range on Wednesday so will take a photo of it in it's latest (and final) iteration.

I have two of the 1.5 stocks (SA and LA) and one 2.0 (SA). If I were starting over, I'd definitely buy the 2.0 version since the folding feature can be useful. I find the 1.5 versions with a 26" barrel to be LONG. When a friend (I helped too :) ) machined the AICS 2.0 to fit my Badger Ordnance action, we had to machine a notch about 3/16" wide and 1/8" deep on top of the "hinge" so that the underside of the bolt has clearance. This isn't an issue with the 1.5 model.

I seriously need one of these rifles with excellent glass. My rifle isn't horrible, but it isn't even close to these AI's and other rifles you guys have nor is my glass. I'm not the greatest shot in the world, but I shoot alright for the rifle I have. I'm anxious to see how well I could shoot with one of these 5k rifles with 2k glass on them. Must be nice.

How would you reloaders like to have ever round compressed and to do the compression by hand without the aid of a press. If your compression is a bit inconsistent, so goes the group.

Here's a photo of my "tack driver" taken today. I weighed the rifle as shown in the photo and it's 16lb-12oz which is plenty safe for F-Class Target Rifle (F-TR) which has an 18.18 lb weight limit. It's an excellent rifle but I'm still trying to get the SD of my reloads into single digit territory. Here are four 5-shot groups and one 9-shot group shot today. I'm pleased with the 9-shot group.

Dang it! This thread keeps coming up, and I wanna play...but my wife loaned our camera to her school for two weeks! Well, I can't post a picture, but I am tinkering with handloads for my favorite tack-driver at this point, and set-up as follows:

Rifle is:
M700 Police .308 Win
KF G-Force 20 MOA rail
Nightforce 30 mm rings
Nightforce 12-42X56 NP-1RR scope
B&C Adjustable Tactical stock
Timney BR 4 ounce trigger
Load is:
Lapua brass
Lapua 155 gr scenar
47.2 grains Varget
Federal 210M primer

Dang, 42X is a lot of magnification. At 32X, I can look at a scratchin' dog at 500 yards and tell ya if what's ailin' it is a tick of a flea. At 42X I can tell ya if the pest is male or female. :p

Reading this and other forums you would think that current Remingtons are junk.

This my example of what a M700 SPSV in 308 win with the crappy plastic stock off a bipod and middle of the round handloads. These were shots number 4 through 12 that were ever fired from this new rifle. The first 3 shots were to get a 100 yard zero. No break in:rolleyes:, no black magic:uhoh:, just three different loads thrown together using 168gr,175gr and 155gr SMK's. Though only 3 shot groups, it's a great representation,it's gone on to better shooting with taylored handloads.

Did do a couple of molyfusion jobs to the bore, though. But as far as I can
tell, it didn't make it shoot any better, just a total breeze to clean;
supposedly does help accuracy in the long run though.

Here is my "tack driver." I built it just to see if it would work, she aint perfect but she's mine. It is a 1943 Russian Mosin that I put a zb-59 machine gun barrel on. I spliced in a psl stock, fiberglassed, and put alumahyde on everything. The face of the receiver was trued, I lapped the lugs, and pillar bed. Scope mount is a rock solid, and scope is a nikkon buckmaster 6-18. Total price in the project is about 150 not including scope.

I recently bought a Savage FCP-K and added a Choate Custom Tactical Stock.

I have a cheap optic on it but if I decide to keep it I will invest in some serious glass.

I shot it yesterday and had an issue with the Accutrigger locking up so I have to resolve that before I do some measured shooting.

1650ish on this field, but I haven't taken the 6.5 that far. The hill in the far background is 1650 from this field, but I can move to another field and get over 2k on the same hill. I need a bigger rifle in the worst way, and would like nothing more than to plug a hog at more than 1400 yards.

Not only are there some fine rifles in this thread but some fine trigger pullers too. I hope to shoot as well some day.

I have just finished this rifle. ArmaLite lower with tactical two stage(not as light as the precision two stage), PRS with the ArmaLite buffer and a cs spring. The upper is a Noveske SS 21" barrel, SWS/Noveske guard. Warne QD rings holding a cheap scope for now. Actually the Mueller TAC II has served me well on several rifles. Always been repeatable, just no bells and whistles.

pdd614
September 7, 2010, 09:36 PM
The 7wsm would be a great choice for 1400, but now I have targets set up for past the 2k mark. Like I said earlier, I need a much bigger rifle. 338 at the minimum. But it took me a long time to get this 6.5 up and going. The 6.5 will need a new barrel soon, and this magnum will probably take a few years to get up and running. Another thing I have learned is that it is not wise to buy your first suppressor, because every rifle thereafter will need a suppressor too. But that is all for another discussion. For now I will just continue to push the 6.5 as far as possible, and keep working on getting my first round hits inside 1100 yards.

Both of mine are budget rifles, they won't compete with most of the rifles shown in the thread but they do well for low budget guns. To be honest though I don't have the skill to shoot most of the groups that are shown no matter what gun I shoot.

Savage 12 FV in .243, SSS LVT stock, Weaver Grand Slam 6.5-20 scope.

That's what Richards Microfit calls "Tigerwood" and as someone already mentioned, it's a laminate. Zebrawood won't get you that much contrast in color and the grain will be a lot tighter.

mine's gotten a new stock since I last posted in this thread, and the average 100yd group over the past 250 rounds, right at .5. I've gotten to do a lot more work out to 600yds and have no problem staying submoa out that far.

Here's a pic from the day I sighted it in in the new stock. prone, bipod in front, hand in back. *edit to add* not so good compressed pic, the groups go from .4xx to .6xx. you can see the full size here: http://thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=548692

Best tack driver I have ever had was a Savage MkII 17 HMR. SCARY SCARY accurate with 17gr TNT HPs. The 5 shot groups looked like one smooth hole until you looked REALLY close!! There simply is not a more accurate rifle anywhere at 100 yards. I lost the targets a while back but I have a witness that I shot these groups several times. Drive tacks? I can beat that, I can shave the edges off of them :evil: Note it would not hit the broadside of barn with poly tip bullets :scrutiny:

This rig is grouping 0.75" at 300 yards. That's close enough to driving tacks.

Mine is a Weatherby Vangard sub moa. It's killed 5 birds at 363 yards. It really likes my RL-15, Nos. ballistic tip reloads. I can't get the pics because the cats ate my targets!Not only that but I don't know how to post pics! Sorry.

I purchased the rifle and scope new about 20 years ago and they still get the job done. It helped me to win my club's first ever Sporter Master Match (five different events in one day) in October 2010.

A match report is the next to last post in this linked thread:

Ahh man, a really beautiful rifle there. It just reeks of tac driver!

Edited to Add: I was referring to doubleA's pic, but I now see more beauties down the page.

This isn't a very good picture, but it's my latest build, a Howa Model 1500 Action with a Krieger 25.5 inch stainless barrel and a Leupold 3-9x40 Vari X II in Redfield style mounts. It's not a tac driver in the sense that some of these rifles here are, but it's a hunting rifle and it is capable of 1/2 MOA If and when I do my part.

lasershot, I want that .22!

I went out yesterday, here is a (for me) WAY above average 600 yd group.

I do all my shooting from a bipod with my hand as back rest. It's four shots on a 12" plate, overall .7 moa, but without the one on the right about .2. I think that just shows what the rifle and load can do when the wind cooperates.

again, those three shots are way above my average at that distance (the whole group is about average), but you have to save the good ones for a thread like this right?:rolleyes:

dubble, what kind of rifle in the top pic (scoped with Swaro)? stock?Looks like a CZ 527-Varmint with a factory Kevlar stock. Just going off the rounds in the background, i'd call it a .204Ruger (though I may be incorrect on that note).

nice shooting kis2. ive been looking for a scrap piece of steel for that very purpose. can't seem to find any though.

January 17, 2011, 11:04 PM
thank you sir. I actually bought that online (thanks to the glory of flat rate shipping) for $45. Not a chip in it in about 100 rounds. That and two cans of spray paint was a good investment over paper, not to mention the fun.

So I bought another 308 win Saturday, making it my 5th one. Have a bud that has the same rifle and wants to get into F class shooting. I figured I could help with giving him a little friendly competition with an exact duplicate. The rifle is a Sabbage M12 F/TR 308 Win. Has a straight 1" dia 1:12 twist 30 inch barrel. I worked up a quick load yesterday driving 168 SMK at just over 2800fps. This load took 13.25 moa elevation at 600 yards. The weather wasnt good at all, the visability was poor due to the rain but easily managed sub moa 5 shot groups at that distance. Shot prone off Harris bipod it didnt track that well and I will soon be getting a Sinclair F class bipod as it does alot better.

Ruger 77, 308, Ciener can...shoots sub-moa both with sub sonic 220 grain SMK as well as with super sonic match loads without the can. And it is very quiet to boot...

http://i188.photobucket.com/albums/z271/reloader1959/rifles/ruger771.jpg

without the can it looks like any other heavy barrel Ruger...nice for hunting coyotes...

dubbleA, whenever I post anything, regardless of what it is, go ahead and add at the bottom of it "and I'm jealous of dubbleA's awesome collection"

very nice everybody.

brandon_mcg: how do you like that triangle barrel? looks neat. 3.5lbs is about a pound and a half heavier than I can for. looks real nice though

brandon_mcg
January 19, 2011, 11:06 PM
kis,

i'm kind of indifferent about the triangulated barrel. some people argue that the reduction in material to make the barrel triangulated adversely effects the accuracy. i havent noticed this versus other 700 models with the round barrel.

the thing that caught my eye was the muzzle break. but guess what, it doesnt help in my opinion (there is no way for me to accurately measure felt recoil).

i left the trigger on the heavy side during deer season just in case, but now i would like to set it around 2 pounds or so for plinking.
