My Varmint Rifle Battery

New guy so I thought I get started with a couple pix of my varmint rifles.
I've thinned it down to these four over the last couple of years and I really could get by with half this many but I'm weak so I stopped here.

Couple of 222Rem's
Bone stock Tikka T3 Hunter (back),
700SPS with the action trued and barrel set back and rechambered to 222....pillar bedded in Boyds classic....old school Walker trigger....
I got the Tikka in Dec....haven't shot it yet but it's going to have to work pretty hard to out shine that cheapest of cheap 700.



And a couple of 17's
700 Classic 17Rem (back).
CZ 527 17FB with a couple of mods.
Both wear Pac Nor SS Super Match barrels.

Yes, I can't imagine shooting 17cals if one didn't reload.
The only long gun I don't reload for is my Marlin 1894 in 44Mag.

That's a nice rig.

I'm far from a BR shooter and these are only 3 shot groups (at 100) but that little home grown 700 with a cheap factory barrel of mine doesn't do too bad.

That is super shooting with a factory barrel and chamber . You know 222 hold the world record for 10 shots at 100 yds for over 40 yrs . It was a Tight Neck 222 with the same reamer dimension as the one I used to build mine . My target below matches that world record .

I said (set back and rechambered" . full disclosure.

It was a budget build.
Bought the SPS (223) for $ 369 with a $ 50 rebate. Gunsmith charged me $ 180 and the stock (ADL) was a tich under $ 100 back then.
After selling the factory stock, trigger, and bottom metal on line I was in it for right at $ 500 and had exactly what I wanted and definitley minute of Rock Chuck.



BTW.....good shooting.....way beyond my capabilities.
