How would you like to rate Remington 700 Varmint SF?
This rifle as ordered was just a starting point. I began handloading and using the stock gun the best I could manage were1.5 inch groups at 100 yards. The 220 Swift is a FAST round. 42 grains of H380 behind a 40 grain VMAX registered over 4200 FPS using a chronograph. My brother, whos much more experienced at benchrest shooting convinced me to change out the stock and trigger, which to be charitable, are junk. I installed a Bell and Carlson stock and a Timney trigger set at 1.5 pounds. My groups are now a little over 1 inch, and I believe with more practice/experimentation with handloads I should be able to shrink them further. Happy I finally own a Swift and ordering from Buds was easy as always. ...more
