    My first bolt action rifle

    So I just bought my first bolt action rifle. I bought a Remington 700 SPS .30-06 with a Leupold VX-1 or VX-2. All for......drum roll..... $200.00. I just need to send it in for the recall

    A steal at that price. And (if gently used) most 30-06 rifles don't have a high round count. You did good!

    Just grab a Timney and forget that recall. The XMP triggers suck anyway. Nice action to start a build with.

    Here's an update on the above rifle. It's now a long action .308 sporting a flat fluted Remington R5 barrel. I also upgraded the stock and the cheap Harris clone. Shot a group between 1/4" and 1/2 " at zero with two of three rounds stacked on top of each other. I just need to update the scope rings and base. Then find a bolt action class.Name:  20181213_183501.jpg
