    I'm from portland. I don't know much about min-eeee-sota, but it must be easier to find a place to target shoot out there than it is in the portland area

    Yeah rik.......not much place to shoot in the Portland area, you might hit a "Summer Complaint"....and that's bad for the tourist business (although I hear it's open season on 'em come huntin' season). ;)

    bigboom338....I live on a small lake about 50 miles west of the Twin Cities. All we have out here is corn fields and lakes.

    Remington 700 Varmit (or police, but the police models are harder to find in .223).
    I have one in .308 I am very proud of it ask smokin' guns
    its shoots sub .5 moa, with a good shooter. @ 50 yards- 100 yards it can be a one hole gun.

    cant go wrong with a good 'ole remmy 700. the varmit comes with a free floating bull barrel, with many variants, kevlar stock, wood stock, fluted, stainless, blue, parkerized (I think, the matte black), electronic trigger, normal trigger set trigger, etc.

    I see Smokin is still "Stokin" everyone. Don't have a black gun 'cept in .308. I do have that S&W bull barrel in .223 with a Weaver T-16 on it though.

    When I got out of the service in early 1972, I had a job with Sperry Gyroscope. I was in charge of the boat crew revamping DLG's from 5" deck guns to Terrier M missle systems. I was sent to Bath, Maine (the shipyards) and at night we use to go down to the dump, where they dumped shrimp remains from a local factory and there were at least 20 to 30 people there shooting rats from the top. Quite a lot of fun. Had bought a Marlin model 60 and went through a heck of a lot of ammo each night. It was fun hitiin them little rascals as they went from hole to hole runnin!

    :D :D :D

    Dang it SG !!

    There you go again SG

    Trying to get me in trouble with the misses. You go and call out a .223 match and I feel obligated to go and buy a new gun just to compete. How about a .22 cal centerfire match instead. Seeinz I have one of those(22-250), It might just save me some money and a marraige. LOL
