    Its very accurate and Im having alot of fun with the new gun. I set the scope yesterday using Remington core lokt 150 grain ammo. Also I bought another box, the ammo is real accurate. Would anybody know of any other ammo I should try out? Also I added a limbsaver to it.

    I went with the Remington in .308. So far the only ammo I've tried is the Federal 150gr SP, and I'm getting sub MOA with this load.

    Cool weapon. I still cant find a decent rest to even attempt sub moa shots. Without a rest at all Im even worse. I shake too much :mad:

    Nice, very good looking but looks pricey.

    Check out Wal-Mart on line. First on is an Allen Ft. Collins folding rest, $27.97. The second one is a Winchester set of sand bags, $21.97. They have some others also. Academy sells the lead sleds and such.

    Although I did hit the bottom of a beer can almost directly in the center at around 80 yards so Im impressed so far and I hit the can with only one try :D

    Both guns are but which one were you talking about? I paid about $616 for the new .308 . It was cheaper than my Savage lightweight Varminter .223 caliber rifle. I own two of those. Theres nothing lightweight about those 2 guns.

    To be honest GR, I wanted the wood funiture, it just looks better, IMHO. Couldn't afford it though.

    Well as long as the weapon is accurate then it doesnt matter to me.

    I have a model 11 on order right now. With the 1:10 twist barrel, I have heard the 168 grain bullet is the optimal weight for that barrel. Try a bipod, it will help a lot as well.

    168 is actually optimal in 11.25 twist but it shoots great in a 10 at .308 velocity. I have a model 11 that i rebarreled with a criterion varmint contour .308 barrel. 10 twist and radiused 4 groove rifling. with 175 SMKs is 1/4 MOA

    you don't hve to go new. I picked up a 110 in .270 with nice wood and a swift 3-9x40 for $250. I'm getting moa with 130g handloads (thanks highboy) and once I figure out it's pet recipe I expect sub-moa from plain bench rests

    Would you recommend staying with the 150 grain bullets for the 1:10 barrel then?
