Badger rings...the rings were temporaly attached for the picture.
I took the rifle to the range and I LOVE IT! very accurate: bullets just go were i want them! incredible ! the bullet holes were touching each other.
Rifle is very loud !!

Does that have the triangular barrel or the round? The new trigger is great!

Rolly! Damn you! I just came from the store. Because of this post I bought an OD green VTR in .223!
What base did you use?

Congrats!!! Nice green isn't it ?
I use badger rings and base. (quality! and expensive!!)
I think with a .223 you do not need to go badger (if you want to save money). The 308 has some nice recoil!!ouch !

and the base is 20 moa

Leupold makes a rail like that -- so does IBA and of course NOW I have buyer's remorse!

BTW the fit of t he recoil pad at the back of the 223 they had on the shelf was terrible -- the stock stuck out all around the pad -- a sharp edge -- I said I'd have bought if it the fit was better and the SOBs grabbed one in the box from the back room and now I own it!

My recoil pad was perfect straight from the box. Where did you get your VTR?
I remember that they still had one .223 in Castro Valley.

I have heard that the barrel is not free floating. Is this true? I am thinking about getting this or a Tikka T3. But I can't make up my mind.

Bought it in Burbank. I have to admit I'm having second thoughts as my waiting period is up imminently... Aside from coolness factor, what is this triangular barrel supposed to do for performance? As I said, I'm wondering if $800 worth of ammo is a better investment.

yes the cool factor is important since evrytime i go to the range people ask me about the rifle.
as far as performance, the rifle is very good.(i have the .308)
as far as fun, the rifle is great
as far as an investment: i do not know about you, but me it is my first rifle.

If i wanted a VERY performant rifle, I would spend more than $800.00 and get a SAKO ($2500.00). Which will be my next step if nobody tell my wife !;)

$800 in .226 ammo that's nice.! now do you need a remington 700 ? or do you need practice?
