Sorta off topic, but I am eyeballing a rifle over here.
It started life as a Remington 700 Varmint (the one with the 26" barrel) and then someone put the normal Tactical stock on it. I can get it for $520 plus tax, which comes to $562.90.
Does that sound like a good deal? I've been thinkin seriously about picking it up for a long range project.
You're out of my league... I am too new to this to be giving used gun pricing advice
I hope somebody else can help you.
1 MOA = 1" at 100 yards. So, a 20 MOA would equal 100" rise at 500 yards. At 500 yards, a 168 gn HPBT match bullet has a -51" drop.
That tells me to stay away from any rise at distances under 500 yards.
Alright, sounds good. I am guessing that Talley is out of the question because I can't find any rings that are level. Like I said, they are all staggered. I am also not sure what a .110" difference in the mounts converts into MOA.
One more obstacle I have run into: what is the difference between long action and short action. I did a search on Google and it looks like the Rem 700 .308 is a short action?
Those are the Talley rings I was talking about. It never crossed my mind but you were thinking the front and back would be connected? Pretty sure when people refer to "one piece" base and rings they are talking about what you pictured, one piece one the front one piece on the back, although the phrase may be misleading.
I understand now. They just had a picture on their website that showed everything as one piece (both front and rear).
I think I like the bipod more for prone shooting or out at the deer lease and bags/block rest at the range, but I haven't had any problems with either.
The bipod tends to bounce all over the table on me at the range. That may very well be my fault, I am still relatively new and trying to find and learn good practices.
Thanks for the info.
