I like to read the posts from all......but it's been a little slow lately! So here's mine. Bought a Rem. 700 xcr 7mm mag. last fall, put a Huskemaw scope on it, and headed to the range. After 40 yrs. of carrying my reliable rem 700 .300 mag., I had high expectations! But after numerous trips to the range, 300 rounds of ammo, and every load combo with Berger bullets and every cartridge tweak(headspace, coal, etc.).....this gun would not shoot any better than MOA, and I surely had hoped for better than that! So I sent it to a gunshop in Cody, Wy. for an overhaul. After getting a new Timney, Talley, HS Precision and Shilen, and a handload already worked up for it, I got it back last Spring, and off to the range I headed. This gun now shoots jagged holes at 200 yds, and 3" groups at 900 yards with a 5mph crosswind!! Too heavy at 11 lbs. to pack up many mountains, but I'm too old to go there anyway!! My new motto is ' walk shorter and shoot longer' !
A final note....after ordering and receiving 2 8# jugs of H-1000 powder from Midway last Spring, I got a visit from Homeland Security-----no problem, but I guess we all gotta know that someone is watching!
Good luck to all you shooters and hunters this fall.........I'll be reading your posts!
