  1. Good morning, Whilst I have yet to experience a pierced primer, I'm alert to the possibility that it could occur at some stage if primer cratering becomes excessive. In the US there appear to be quite number of people bushing the firing pin channel in the Remington bolt to achieve a better fit (presumably with a new firing pin too) so that cratering is avoided or reduced. This doesn't seem to be a common modification in the UK but I was wondering whether anybody on here knows of it being done in this country (and by whom) or whether it's just not worth bothering about? I always use CCI primers; the image is typical of the cratering observed whether with a light load of 42.6gr N140/168gr SMK or a heavier load of 44gr N140/175gr TMK. Any thoughts please?

  4. It started life as a .223 Remington 700P. The rifle was sent to Valkyrie Rifles for Dave to work his magic on. I wanted to be able to hit gongs out to 1000 yards! The rifle was built during January 2015. The action was blue printed and a barley twist was added to the bolt along with a tactical bolt knob. It has a 28” Pacnor Super Match Barrel with a 1 in 7 twist. Chambered in .223 Wylde, an 11 degree target crown was added and it was then screw cut for a Jet-Z moderator and an invisible end cap! The action, the bolt, the barrel and the moderator were then all Ceracoated in graphite black H series! This superb barrelled action now sits in an MDT Tac 21 chassis system. This modular chassis system has a built in 20 MOA Picatinny rail that runs the length of the system. Because this chassis accepts AR parts, I opted for a Houge pistol grip and a Magpul PRS adjustable but stock. Because of the removable butt stock, this long rifle is easily carried in a hard case. The rifle has fired a total of 344 rounds including the 5 rounds Dave fired through it way back in 2015! Using the load I’ve developed this rifle shoots .3 MOA @ 100 yards and reliably reaches out to the required distance! (We’re not talking about a barn door size target either. I shoot a 20”x 20” steel gong… Thats 2 MOA!) I have spent quite some time collecting the tools and materials required to make this rifle preform how I wanted. When I found the bullets it liked, I bought them in BULK! I’d like to sell it all including the info on load data. The Sale consists of: Semi Custom Remington in an MDT chassis system 1x 10 Round metal Accurate Mag Jet-Z Moderator Black Rifle Picatinny Rail (Mounted to fore grip to mount Bipod) 14x Box Hornady 80gr A-Max (1400 bullets!) 11 boxes all from the same batch 2x Tubs of H4895 (Enough powder for 540+ rounds) 200x PPU Brass - New 200x PPU Brass - Once fired (Formed in this chamber) 132x PPU Brass - Twice fired (Formed in this chamber on 2nd shoot) 118x Magtech Brass - Twice fired (From a previous chamber) Redding Competition Bullet seater (Micrometer type) A-Max bullet seater Stem. (VLD Stem and original also included) Hornady Lock-N-Load .223 Bullet Comparator insert Brush & Jag attachment for barrel cleaning Hard Case with egg shell foam All the above has cost in excess of £4.5k and the rifle has seen hardly any use. (The A-Max bullets alone make £500 of that and obviously they’ve never been used!) I’m asking for £3,500 for the whole package. £2,000 for the rifle in the Chassis System, Prs Stock, Pistol Grip & Mod - Once the rifle has gone I will be willing to split the rest. With this rifle and it’s reloading accessories, you will be out hitting steel beyond 700 yards as quick as you can get a scope on it! If you would like to negotiate on price, feel free to make an offer but you must be able to collect the rifle or pay the RFD fees... If I get full asking price, I am prepared to cover the RFD fees. If you'd like to know any more info, just use the thread or send me a PM. All The Best. Jay
  5. Looking for a swap or sell Need a composite tactical stock for a tikka t3 right hand and/or a tactical /target scope of same value to this. Thanks Lawton 6mm BR norma (remington clone) 800rounds from new 25"lilja 8twist varmint threaded 18x1 20moa rail Jewel trigger £950 (can include a T8 mod free of charge if have slot,only done 30 rounds )
  6. Picked this up recently at auction. Advertised as "Rem 700 L/W SP - Olive". Rem 700 - yes it is. Short Action, inlet for BDL floorplate. L/W - Light Weight ? Well it's 2.5 lb, so not THE lightest. It feels very solid though. SP - Sporter style. Olive - yes it is, with a black spatter on top for extra grip It appears to have a hard (maybe injection moulded?) insert for the full length of the action as well as a couple of pillars for bedding. The swivels are moulded in tabs, though there is a normal metal stud under the forend for bipod attachment. My plan was to swap the EGDE stock on my BAR-VR for this and upgrade from a Wyatt DBM to an AICS system. However, that extra pound has made me stop and think it's not worth the effort starting with this stock. So, to go towards another EDGE (or home-grown equivalent like SSS), I'm putting the Wild Dog on here up for grabs. It stands me at £150. I will send it out RMSD included for that. Any takers ?
  7. I'm after a replacement stock for my Rem 700 SPS Varmint. The standard plastic stock is awful, and makes the gun very unbalanced and heavy over the nose. I like the look of the AICS but would like some opinions on those stocks or other similar stocks that people have experience of and would like to share. The MDT TAC-21 was the other I was considering. Thoughts anyone?
  8. Do Remington make a decent off the shelf precision rifle that compares with say Tikka or Sako ? reading between the lines not many experienced rifle shooters like them for various reasons ,build quality being one issue. They come across a bit like Harley Davidsons , you buy one then spend a shed load on it to make it work correctly.
  9. . Hello. Due to a change in my work status I am looking at selling my Remington 700, .223 and my BRNO CZ .308. I might be working overseas and if I don't sell them they will go into long term storage, which I'm reluctant to do because I think rifles should be used and not put into storage. They are both in Doncaster and I use them both regularly at distances up to 500mtrs and I have used the Remington at Bisley up to 1000mtrs. Collection in person but I could RFD them at the buyers expense (I think that works out at about £40 or £50). I only ever fire military surplus ammunition through them and they always hit where I aim. I have owned the Remington for over 2 years and I've not had any issues with it, it has a moderator which has AU T4 F 25 14 markings stamped onto it, I understand that means it is a T4 moderator, but I don't know it's make. The rifle is .223 calibre and it has a Hawke scope fitted. The rifle also has an adjustable bipod fitted which extends to about 12 inches. There is a large plastic carry case that came with the rifle and although one end is slightly damaged it is fully functional and will be included. Remington £600 The BRNO has a wooden stock with a few marks on it, as to be expected from a well used rifle. The rifle is fitted with an Edgar Brothers scope (which I refitted with spacers because the original mount seemed to stress the mount screws). The BRNO is in .308 calibre and after refitting the scope the first 3 bullets through it were all within half an inch of each other at 100mtrs. BRNO £200 Photos. I can't link to Photobucket for some reason so anyone wanting photos please PM me and I will forward them to you. Regards Rob .

  13. Remington Model 700 action, 'stainless' steel 1 in 10" right twist 24" No. 4 contour barrel with 'satin' finish, blued removable muzzle brake (easy to clean crown) and synthetic green ?McMillan? stock. Built by Riflecraft Ltd.; over £2,000 to have built at today's prices. Includes 30 mm scope rings. Scope itself not included. In VGC; very slight rub marks to barrel finish, so slight as to be unable to pick them up in photos. Bought June '09 from first owner, when said to have had about 500 rounds through it. Have since fired 320 rounds. Have now moved up to heavier barrelled 300 WM for range work. Captioned rifle now with an RFD pending sale. ​Location North Suffolk Ideal for more resilient quarry such as lowland reds and boar and longer distance shots where retained energy for clean kills is required. When last fired, witnessed group elevation was < 0.2" Price was £1,375 o.n.o. Reduced to £1,050 o.v.n.o.
  14. Rifle Remington 700 SPS Varmint .243 Includes 20” Barrel, Threaded with Target Crown & Flush Thread Protector Laminate Varmint Thumbhole Stock (Devcon Pillar Bedded, Free-Floated Barrel Channel) Reflex T8 Suppressor Detachable Bottom Metal (Accepts AI Mags) Custom Tactical Bolt Handle Picatinny Rail Metalwork Duracoated Flat Black Slip to accept rifle (incl. scope & bipod) Condition I’ve owned from new (2yrs) & it includes the original box & Edgar Brother’s documentation. Barrel has been shortened and threaded with a target crown by Dave at Valkyrie. Custom bolt handle fitted by Brock & Norris. Duracoating done by Jager Sporting Arms. Round count is 690, the bore is still in great condition and is extremely accurate. The action is very smooth and feeds perfectly from the detachable bottom metal / floorplate. The stock is new and only has a couple of minor scrapes. The barrelled action has slight cosmetic marking (from suppressor fitment etc.) but is in very good used condition. The whole rifle is extremely accurate and performs flawlessly. Regretful sale but can't justify ownership anymore. Cost over £1,800 to build. Asking only £600 ONO! Call: 07595 468063 Thanks, Richard
  15. Hi I am looking to sell a new Remington action barrelled with a 28" Bartlein. The action face has been trued and the bolt lugs has been lapped, It also has a tactictal bolt knob fitted. The barrel is a Barltein SS 28" light varmint contour in 1-12" twist chambered in 308 Winchester, it is also screw cut. The barrelled action is proofed. It doesn't come with trigger nor rail and moderator. The reason I am looking for someone to buy this package as I am turning towards a full custom project in F/tr class instead. The barrelled action hasn't had a single round through. I do not intend to make any money instead I just want someone to take it over at a price £950,- You can me Pm and I shall do my best to answer you as soon as possible. Regards
