There was a Gun show in Duluth, MN this weekend and I had a table where I was trying to sell off some of my older stuff. The main gun I wanted to sell was a 700 VLS in 22-250. I bought it in 2006 and have never really liked it. Well, tow days of sitting and no takers so during a lull in the non action I walked around looking at other peoples stuff. I found a 700 Remington .243 with a trued action, Shillen 28inch barrel, muzzle break, 2oz trigger and Bench rest stock. The guy wanted 850.00 for it and we ended up making a trade. I threw in some ammo and a Tasco scope and he was happy. I was thrilled. My buddy was pissed that he didn't find it first.

I have a 6.5-20X Leupold in long range (20MOA) mounts to go on top. This should be just the thing for those 1000 yard Prairie Dogs.

Nice find! I've wondered about the Shillen barrels I saw some good deals online and I've been thinking of upgrading sometime in the future, let us know how it shoots.

Spent the day restocking and installing a scope. Had the 6.5-20 Leupold off my 22-250 to install and a old Remington 40X stock. I had to make a single shot follower for it since it had none. Going to be 40 below windchill tomorrow so I'll probably not shoot it for a while

Won't be any Range Reports for a few weeks. Global Warming has reard it's ugly head and dumped a bit of snow on the range. With that, the temps have crawled into the minus zero range and the wind chill this morning is around 40 below.

Green or white, that's a nice place. I'll take dirt and weeds over concrete any day.
