Hey guys tell me what you think. I Just shot my "new" rifle today. It is really my M700 that used to be a 270Win, but now is .308Win. The work was done by local smith where I live, and he did te conversion, including the barrel for $35, since I helped him with the work(I am a 700 armorer). The barrel is a brand new never fired take off, from a 700 Light varmit I think as it medium weight Matte(the barrel dates to 1996, and the smith took it off the brand new rifle for another customer who wanted a .243, but could not get one when he wanted it. It is a 6 groove 1 in 10 twist. I put the rig in a Choate ultimate Varmint Stock, and it shoots well. I covered 5 with a quarter using PMC match 168 factory ammo. Milsurp 150 was only slightly larger group. The Glass is a Mueller 4 to 16 by 50 ADJ Objective, IR. The mounts are Redfield 1 piece with steel Redfield rings. I am using the rifle for LE work, and boy is it an improvement over my prior M14 based platform.
