Pretty nice setup. I'd like to get one in .223 as well. How much money do you have in it?

Most people say get a .308, but it's just a bench rifle. .223 is dirt cheap!

All in all I've about 1600 invested...

That is nice. I like the stock. Ive got the .308, but yeah .223 is about half as much ammo wise.

Do you have a supressor for it or did you buy it that way? I would really like to get my barrel threaded ect but I can't really justify the cost right now.

I've got a Savage 110 in .308 but I'd love to have a .223 bolt action as a companion to it. Very nice setup man.

Thanks! I've found that my rifle really likes the vmax fiocchi ammo and it's super cheap, win win!

I bought the rifle used and it came threaded. The gunsmith was trying to push me towards the suppressor idea, something about the threading is one of the more generic cuts and it would be reasonable, but my hobby fund needs rebuilding.

It would be cool as hell to have though!

edit: going to try to get to the range maybe next weekend, you fellas are more than welcome to put some rounds through it to see if you like it.

Thanks!

My first bolt action was a Savage 110 tact in 7mm rem mag, that's the main reason I decided on .223 to tinker with - was too expensive to shoot! It was a nice rifle though too..

Now when I think back about how much I have invested and what the rifle is capable of, I probably should have gone with a custom AR setup. Semi over bolt and 30 round mag over 10...

Any reason why you didn't go with a .270 or 30.06?

Not really, I was wanting to go with the 700 SPS Tac as a base since I read a lot of good reviews about them out of the box. I picked this one up with the scope, rings, and rifle for a good price so went with it.

edit: Just noticed something looked different than before. My sunshade has been taken off the scope - had to leave a message up there. Kind of annoyed since the sunshade had no reason to be taken off. Hopefully they don't try to say it wasn't on there.......

I was trying to figure out what to say when I saw this yesterday, it just came to me.

That gun LOOKs a lot more expensive than a 1600 dollar rifle. Awesome looking IMO.

There aren't a lot of .270 (.277) bullets that can compete with the 6.5's (.264), 7mm's (.284), and .308's. Also, those are typically on long action platform, and a short action's advantages are many and quantifiable.

Give me a dollar.

You can get a 223 can for around $600, but I would spend $900-$1000 for a big brand name suppressor (I am partial to the gemtech g5).

That would be a bad sum-bitch with a can on the end!

I'm trying to go out there this weekend too to shoot my AR and my 700, but I might take my dad over to winchester instead. I want him to try out a couple of handguns and last time I asked Alpine they only rented Glocks.

It use to be matte, but it has rubbed off, need to re-spray

edit: It was matte before I took it to the gunsmith where it was for 2.5 months for something minor. Guess he kept fucking with it and rubbed the matte off.

I like low drag high speed!

I honestly didnt even notice this one was already threaded.

I have a friend that just got his precision rifle whatever back. The company uses the original muzzle end as the end cap, so when the can is off and the end cap is on, you cannot tell the muzzle has even been touched.

Yup - I need to stop throwing money at my other hobbies if I ever want a can. I heard I wouldn't have any issues with getting a tax stamp in my area, per the gun store.

Yea last time I rented a gun from Alpine all they had were Glocks. Usually if you can get a few DFWstangers out there, there is a nice selection to shoot from. I unfortunately sold all my handguns..

Heh, my toy funds are tapped right now due to the truck and having to buy a new freakin xbox. The stock triggered is lightened and feels pretty crisp.

Cmon .50 MOA!
