A new rifle

Recommended Posts

I decided on a .223

Mainly for target shooting and the occasional foxing trip.

I was all set for a semi custom build and one popped up which sounded to good to miss. Kindly the guy waited for my fac to return.


It is as follows


After a long day driving I am home with a new rifle.

It's a Remington 700. In 223 it will also shoot 556 NATO safely due to longer throat

Lovely looking rifle,should shoot some good groups with it.

If youre ever looking to sell that scope,let me know.

Cheers. Quite impressed with it. Always fancied the Nightforce. Great clicks on it. Feel very positive. Will know more in a few weeks of use if it's a keeper. Will bare you in mind if I sell.
