    Here's my new Remington 700 VTR in .308. I've got a Bushnell Banner 3x9 for now. I'm actually impressed with the scope, for what I paid. Best group so far was 1.5" spread five shots at 100 yards using Swift Scirroco 150 grainers. I wonder if it will accept detachable mags? Will I have to get some work done on it to accept Remi 700 detach mags?

    Does that triangular bbl help with harmonics? Nice looking rifle.

    I couldn't tell much on the harmonic side, but I could see a difference in barrel cooling and the muzzle brake really helps snuff out on .308 recoil.

    Try some Federal Match 168 and get back to us on the accuracy.

    You have set the 308 rifle up nicely.
    I bought a VTR in 223 last week. I like it for a farm truck gun; as
    it is short enough to be handy and the stock is slim where you carry
    it. It has a good balance.
    One point of interest- the VTR in 223, 22-250, and 204 will be eligible
    for a $50 rebate. For some reason the 308 is not. Perhaps you
    could email Remington and ask for the rebate. Tell them you have
    big varmits.

    The green really isn't that bright, it's the flash that makes it look like that. Mine's been grouping around the same..and I suspect strongly that the weak point is the stock's contact points on the barrel. It's just got way too much flex in the forearm. Wondering about the possibility of cutting into the stock and inserting some sort of aluminum stiffeners...

    I have a rem 700vls in .308, with hand loads my best 100 yd 5 shot group has been .6 in, I have shot under 1 inch about 6 times and most have been in the 1 to 1.5 in range, I am sure if I would do my part I could get 1 in or better groups. Try differant ammo or try handloading, you have a great rifle and it can do great things.
