    That's so @Bcamos can afford the four 454's from the "likes received"

    Anyone done the 6-48 to 8-40 conversion on their scope base?

    Honestly I don’t think it’s necessary. Now many Remington’s have had issues with the base screws having been cut slightly off center and this is a way to true it up if the issue was minimal.

    But standard calibers aren’t recoiling enough to cause an issue.

    Now if you managed to strip a screw then go for it it creates a great solution to that problem

    I may have stripped a screw.

    Factory stock but with Noveske Bazooka Green Cerakote. It's like a vintage army green. :D

    RPR 6.5CM topped with NF SHV, leave the shag carpet alone....I like how it feels on my feet. Heavy boom stick, makes small holes on paper. I really need to start reloading for this one.

    My underdog and perhaps favorite, Mod 70 Win .25-06. Kind of a forgotten, unknown round. Shoots .270 flat and hits like a train. Really likes the Berger 115gn VLD’s it will reach out a ways and anchor whatever whatever game or vermin you’re chasing. Topped with NF Glass.

    This thread needs to be a sticky so I don't have to go searching for it.

    This should be arriving sometime this week. I'm still not sold on the chassis that's on it, but if I don't like it I'll swap it out for my KRG Bravo.

    MDT ESS chassis
    Burris XTR II 5-25
    SPHUR 4001 mount

    New rifle, who dis? This thing isn't a one hole monster like the .308 was (keep in mind I'm breaking the barrel in with El Cheapo Hornady American Gunner, rather than match grade stuff) but holy **** is it a wind cheater! I zerod with a constant 10MPH wind yesterday and then placed a few shots on a 10" plate at 270yds with no need for a wind hold at all. I'll be able to push the plate back once my neighbors moves his cows to another field. I didn't want to use USDA beef as a backstop yesterday lol.

    this is my IPSC target at 100yds, not the 10” plate at 270.
