Remy 700…new optics :)

I'm taking a long range class at Frontline Defense the end of May.
Talking with the instructor, the scope I had on the 700, Nikon M308, just wouldn't work all the way out to 1000yd.
I was told that I needed another scope….

So, the other week, I purchased a Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 FFP (mrad).

Got that mounted last weekend, but have not had a chance to do a range zero.
It's bore sighted right now.
I also need either a 20moa rail for the scope mount to mount to, or I need to get new rings which would have 20moa built into.

A picture or 2…

Beautiful rifle. What caliber? I'm working on a long range build using the Savage model 11. Let us know how you like the scope. If it's 308 what kind of ammo will you be using? Factory or handloads?

Plus, 1. Have dealt with Vortex on binoculars. Fine group of folks.

I take it you have access to a 1000 yard range. Our range only goes out to 200 yards, but, around here, that's about the only place you'll ever get a 200 yard shot unless you are shooting across a lake. Would love to do some 300 yard plus shooting with my Encore 308 pistols.

I need to take a road trip to Frontline someday. I have read a lot of good things about them on NCGO.
Looking forward to hearing about your class.

Caliber is .308 and this one likes Federal Gold Medal Match 168gr.
I'm going to get some 175gr to use at the class also.

I have a crap load of brass saved up in all my calibers, just need to get my reloading stuff set up...

Sorry for not replying - I kinda fell off the earth here. /shrug/

USMC6094 - in that configuration, I did not get to shoot the rifle.

I have some "upgrades" to the rifle now, KRG X-Ray stock, threaded barrel and JP brake, oversized bolt knob.
I have since shot in the new configuration and I love it.
It was back in October that I was able to get a 100yd zero, in anticipation of getting over to the 1000yd range soon after, but I haven't.
Optics are absolutely great and I got a very good deal on the whole setup.

I'm thinking while I'm off over the Christmas holidays, that I shall make a trip up to FLD and get some dope for that day/conditions.

Here's the zero target.
Started out with shots to the upper far right and moved them in/down.
The shots at the bottom diamond are after I got it all dialed in.
I guess not too bad for a woman.

Not bad for a man or woman. Better than I can do that's for sure.

Very nice shooting. I don't have any experience with Vortex, but your results say plenty.

Those are some bad ass groups.

Requests?
Post a pic of the rifle after you upgraded it for long range precision shooting

Thanks - it's just 100yd though.
I want to see some "bad ass groups" at longer distances…you know me.

Ha. I thought I had posted a picture of the upgrade.
This is just at the LGS (Trigger Happy Guns and Accessories) after I got it back from FLD with the upgrades. Maybe when I'm out at FLD next time, I'll take some more pictures.
Also not shown in the picture is a 10rd magazine. I'll get more better pictures soon.
