I just picked up a Remmy LTR in 223. Mounted a Leupold MKII 4-12 scope. This is my first scoped rifle and was wondering what I might expect accuracy wise. Any info or opinions on this set up will be appreciated. With my current commitments I probably wont make it to the range until March.

Thanks Federale, I just got a woody. Is that from a box stock rifle?

A little trigger work and a larger bolt knob, but otherwise stock.

Federale, what kind of scope and rings are on your stick? Possibly a Leupold Mark 4 4.5-14x50mm LR/T M1 Illuminated Scope?

Does anyone else know what size those rings are on the picture above of Federale's LTR?

Im getting the Remey 700 SBS in 223 and i figure at 500 meters or less I should be able to do well
and I got it for about 550 out the door so thats sweet.... well tell i learned the transfer fees to Kaliforniastan were almost 200 bucks ........ ouch!

anyway I am looking forward to getting it setup

I intend to get a Leopold Mark2 in mildot

for an entry level rifle that should do just fine

The rings in the above picture look to be Leupold Mark 4's probably Low version.
With a 50mm objective scope and the factory barrel contour you should be able to mount up any of the big makers low rings and not have any barrel contact(which is usually on the flip up's).

Please make sure to break in your barrel with the dreaded ritual.........you won't regret it.

Later,
Stu


Thanks Stu. BTW, what is the dreaded ritual? I'm picking up a 700 sps on Friday what do I need to do to it to break it in?

Definitely use a bore guide and a coated rod. Also, don't drag patches back down the bore. Have fun.

Shoot 1 clean...........................do this 10 times.
Shoot 3 clean...........................do this 5 times.

Total should be 25 rounds.

The above is what most barrel makers suggest for proper barrel break in.
It usually takes a few hours to do it but your barrel will thank you for it.

If you can I would suggest a bore guide so as to not knick the throat with the cleaning process.

Yes.............I do this ritual for factory tubes as well as my customs.

Proper barrel break in will prolong the use of your barrel.

Later,
Stu


Thanks Stu. Great Advice. I will definitley do this to my new SPS.

Actually its a 6.5-20x50mm LR/T scope.

The rings are Leupold Mk 4 tactical medium height mounts. I had to take a little off the bottom of the lens cover for the scope to clear the barrel.
