Thats a cool 22". It may be psychological, but the rifle seems to shoot better with less recoil and smaller groups after the barrel chop. Although I have heard that a precision barrel re-crown can do that. Anyway the barrel chop has exceeded my expectations of benefit. I would have been happy with a more balanced rifle.

Tikka M595 Master Sporter chambered in 6.5x47mm Lapua. All the gunsmith work was by Mac Tilton of MTGuns.

I spend my free money on guns, not cameras so cell phone pics are all I have. Enjoy!

My Remington 700 sps tactical .308 is in jail for 9 more days. Once it's out gotta figure out what I should buy to attach a scope. There's like so many different options and everything out there as for mounting height ect is all specific for how many yards your going to shoot. I plan on just shooting anywhere from 200 and up since I'm not doing competitive shooting. Looks like I have alot of research and learning to do. And hopefully I can get a set up that can work for a wide variety of distances.

The only other bolt gun I have is a .22lr Savage Mk II trr-sr but come with a scope rail from the factory. It's only super prices from 0-200 yards though.

Default TRG-22

Photo is of my TRG-22, in 308. Now completely sorted.
-Custom cheekpiece spacer,10mm
-Atlas Version 8 Bipod attached to Anshutz rail using Accushots BT28 AFAR kit
-Sako muzzle brake, reduces felt recoil entirely and keeps scope on target
after you fire
-trigger pull weight adjusted to 1st stage 12 oz. and 2nd stage 22 oz
-Holland anti-cant level
-Near picatinney rail base with 25 MOA
-Badger Ordnance rings USMC M40A3 Standard Height 1.0"
-Premier Heritage Tactical 5-25x56 Illuminated GEN 2XR MTC, DT, CCW, .1
MRAD, 28 MRAD, 3" sunshade

Best load is 155.5 Berger Fullbore bullet, Lapula Palma Brass, CCI 450 small rifle magnum primer, 47.5 gr. of Varget, bullet lenght 3.170 measured from the base of case to bullet ogive. This is .073" off being jammed into the lands. The loaded rounds are to long to put in magazine so they do have to be loaded individually.

The chronograph stopped working so we only got the 47 gr load which is as follows:
1-2877 fps
2-2868 fps
3-2875 fps
4-2874 fps
5-2868 fps
Average of 2872 with SD of 10 FPS

I have two other excellent loads for rifle, one with 155 gr. BIB flat based bullet and another for 175 SMK.

Below is a 10 shot group I shot yesterday. It is .1" over ½ MOA at 100 yards. Using loaded referenced in my earlier post.

Hey guys, I'm trying to choose a rifle and I'm narrowing it down to a Remington 5r in .308. Before I pull the trigger, is there another rifle I should look at that is similar to it and also hold one more round instead of 3?

Savage 10FP, Tikka T3 Varmint .308 (but cut down the barrel a bit) Tikka Tactical .308, Sako (just about anything), Howa 1500 Varmint .308, and Kimber 84M Police Tactical, as well as FN Herstal Tactical Precision .308

Look at all of these before spending almost a grand on something.

Funny thing about this thread:

You can tell who the real prone shooters are and who always shoots from the bench by where they mount their scopes for eye relief.

Please explain this to me. How do you mount the scope differently for prone shooting? Is it closer, or further from your eye?

Do not listen to this, refer to post #1736

The scope itself is mounted further forward. In prone, your face is further up on the stock so proper eye relief is attained by moving the scope forward.

Bench shooters mount their scopes further back because they are not as "crawled up" on the stock because they are sitting and the rifle is high on the bench.

Actually, you are wrong, its the complete opposite.
In a proper prone position, your face is gonna be farther back, when you are shooting from the bench you are gonna be hunched forward leaning over the rifle. I

At the CAPRC clinic we ran last week, 90% of the new shooters had their scopes too far forward to get a perfect sight picture from prone because they had zeroed their guns at the bench.

Yep, I stand corrected. After I typed that I went out to the reloading room and discovered the exact opposite of what I said.

But.....my rifles are set up the "proper"(prone) way!
