Do it off a helicopter flying map of the earth, prone, unsupported and "then get back to us". LOL just kidding and poking at some of our other local super snipers on calguns.

Those rifles out of the box are really great. You did a good job!

Op said varget with SMK 175.....

The $50 match ammo is 168 or 175 smk....

And as a reloader, you can find out what your rifle likes and tailor the loads to your rifle.

You start out playing with powder charge then COAL.

After doing that, your reloads can be far more accurate than that $50 box match ammo. (of course your reloads are only as good as your *consistent* powder charge)

Amax is also a popular bullet, and cheaper than the SMK's.

Yes but QC on the a-max has been slipping. http://forum.308ar.com/topic/7191-need-advice/#entry74062

Nice group. Now only if I can find some reloading components.

That can't be done with other 700's because they are only guaranteed for 1 inch.
You must have torqued all the bolts and learned the fundamentals with a 22LR at 200 yards?
All BS aside nice shooting.

What a terrible waste of an excellent bullet when shot at 100 yards, need to get out to 600-1000
