Looks good. Was that with a 168gr. Hornady? and what Powder?

My Remington Model 700 SPS (20" Sporter Weight Barrel) .308 isn't printing groups quite that tight yet. I tested my first series of test loads on Tuesday and I have the second batch of test rounds loaded up. I am working with Varget Powder, Winchester Brass, CCI-BR2 Primers with 150gr. & 165gr. Nosler Ballistic Tips. Hopefully on Sunday I can get to the range.

The wind is sort of a non factor at my range becuase of 25 foot berms on either side of the shooting lanes. The rifle is a 700 with cheap glass, a brake, B&C A2 stock and heavy barrel. Older model. Was called a VS (varmint Synthetic at the time).

man thats a nice rifle there :D

how does it do at long range.
I only get to shoot out to about 400 at the most. The rifle will do sub MOA. Sometimes I can do it too.
