View Full Version : Remington 700P/ Super Sniper/ 168gr Nosler CC Range Report

I just got this Remington 700 P in last week. I got a Badger Ordnance mount, and a Super Sniper mounted on it. I remind you this is brand new and the barrel has not been broken in yet.

I was shooting 168gr Nosler CC BTHP on it. My loads consisted of 42 grains RX15, CCI Large Benchrest Rifle Primers, anbd Federal Match Brass that were chamfered. OAL is 2.775

This was the first time shooting a .308 caliber rifle, and I can say I have less than 5 months of shooting rifle experience on me.

First 15 rounds were needed to zero in at 50 yards, then target was set to 100 yards. I did a five bullet grouping at 100yards with a brand new barrel, and brand new handloads that I just guessed from. I can say I was very impressed. It shot about 1 moa off a bipod with no rear sandbag or sock.

Next week, the scope will be change to a Mark 4 Tactical Scope with Badger Rings and a rear sock or sandbag. I will not change the loads, and I expect a 1/2 moa grouping.

All I can say is this is the best rifle I have ever owned, and the time taken to load these 50 rounds (2.5hours) was definitely worth it.

With people that wanted to know how Nosler 168gr BTHP are, I say they are an excellent bargain that is capable of shooting 1/2 MOA groupings.

Again I am not the most experience guy, since I am very green. If I can do this, I am sure the more experienced guys can do 1/4-1/2 moa easily on this load.

Temperature was about 103 degrees with an average of a 5 mile an hour crosswind.

try something in 175. My savage likes the 168s but loves the 175s.

I will most definitely do! Does the 175 have to be single loaded?

When I first received my 700 PSS I had the RPA Micro sights installed. At 200yds with my spotting scope I was having trouble seeing all the hits. I knew I was in the top of the "X" ring. So I ran down to take a closer look and realized that all the shots ran in a line 3/4" long. Let me tell you I was so happy I spent the money on a Remington 700 PSS in .308:)

I had recommended this range before. All the way out to almost 900 yds.

They have a dedicated "High Power" rifle club, they have matches once or twice a month. 7/29 is a long range match. They have got some VERY GOOD shooter and they are very friendly. They will try to help you and teach you how to shoot (I learnt a LOT from them before, even tho I don't yet have the equipment I need at that point). After the match (run till about noon), it is practice time, so you can stay behind and practice all you wanted!

The range is just a little south of Temecula.

Heh heh, I think he means the 30.06, the 44 mag lever action marlin and the glock 20 10mm. :) But yeah, 700p it is! :0)

You are correct and the only time I can shoot over the weekends is saturday. As long as we go saturday morning I am good.

I am trying to get some .40 cal cartridges for you. 5 boxes of remington and 40 rounds of defensive stuff for 60.00. We'll see how it goes.

07-23-2007, 10:07 AM
Jicko, how is the wind out there?

It changes (like everywhere else....). It is calm'er earlier, then it does pick up... but then, that's part of LR shooting that you have to deal with!


RE: gf/spouse

Just take them out to shoot. They may enjoy 223 if you have a heavy barrel and bipod setup for them. But soon enough, you may be downgraded to a "spotter" from a "shooter" if they shoot better than you.

is your SS 10x, 16x or 20x? Is your base mount zero MOA or 20 degrees?

SS is 10x. Base mount is 20 (badger). currently

SS is coming off, and Leupold Mark 4 is going on with badger rings.
next week

only thing i don't like about the ss is the adjustments are not as clean and defined, and the glass could be a little crisper.

Nice shooting! I want that same rifle. I've been beating myself up on whether to get that or the LTR, but I keep seeing better results at longer ranges from the 26-inch barrel.

This has me excited :)

That range looks awesome too... too bad its so far from me.

If you plan on using it to hunt.. I suggest the LTR. Standard 700P weighs in at about 13 pounds fully accessorized.

Do they have any steel targets at 500yrd line? How long does it take to walk 500 yrds to put up paper target(15min seize fire)?

So is there a general consensus re: best/most-gun-for-the-money?

700P or 10FP?

Prc329
07-24-2007, 7:40 AM
10FP has been considered the better out of the box bargin. I always see a lot of people saying the 700s need a lot of work to get there full potential. Most Savages just need a good stock (about $200+)

07-24-2007, 7:48 AM

Altho I just bought a 700PSS..... I think I might have to vote for a 10FP.....

By the way, how much is a 10FP, new? (some member just try to sell his for $450... THAT's a steal)

700P(SS) definitely need some trigger work, should be very easy to do(even DIY)... but a 700P would be around mid $800 or low $900.

I personally ended up with the 700 cuz, I just want the LE/Mil look, and many many many LR shooters build their custom rig on the 700 platform. (on top of that, I waited, and ended up bumping into a good deal...)

But if you weren't thinking about doing too much customization, and you just want to shoot "stock configuration", the 10FP with accutrigger, seems to be the way to go.

PistolPete75
07-24-2007, 7:53 AM
if your going to customize down the road, get the 700. if don't want to spend alot of money, but want an accurate rifle right out of the box get the 10fp. yep, someone is selling a 10fp for $450 but i think it might be pending sale now.

Prc329
07-24-2007, 8:39 AM
I Paid $650 new and I believe Bud spend $700+ for the HS Stocked 10FCP.

A starter savage with glass can be had around $1200 or less. Way less if you don't plan on shooting from a bipod and dealing with the crappy stock.

yep they are typically going for $600-$650 right now. $450 was a steal. prices have gone up on this rifle.

Novadesigns
07-24-2007, 8:42 AM
Yeah the reason I want to go with the 700 is that it has such a huge aftermarket and there are a ton of smithing resources for them. I think its a good rifle to grow with too... As your ability increases you can accurize the rifle more and more.

PistolPete75
07-24-2007, 8:48 AM
i can honestly say, that my 700 p is the my favorite firearm. i have been converted from semi to bolt action. i just love the accuracy on these suckers.

after i shoot 4-5k rounds down my 700 p, i am going to get a true remington action, chamber, and install a custom barrel by r&d precision or nor-cal precision. if i can salvage my stock, i'm going to keep it.

Thats exactly why I didnt go with a rem 700....There is too much stuff you have to do to them Hence all the aftermarket parts/ smithing resources.

I like my 10FP cause I dont have to worry about all that stuff and can do the work myself. Hence not very many aftermarket parts/ smithing resources.

you are lucky. i am with terrible with my hands. i can barely put a toy together for my baby.

That is what drew me to the 10FP. Besides the fact a guy I trust recommended it to me, it is a great platform to do it yourself. There is a big aftermarket for the rifle, you just don't see many gunsmiths specializing in accurizing them. Mainly because once you put a good stock on it you do not need to.
