The best rifle I have ever owned is the Model 700 Remington heavy barrel in .308 Winchester that I own now. Over the years I have sighted in a lot of other folks guns. They start bringing them to me in September. I have a 125 yard range, and these guys for the most part are either first time buyers, or guys who have traded, or gotten new optics. I'm just a average man who likes to shoot and has read everything I can get hold of about firearms. I am no expert by any means, but do understand a lot about guns that most of the people in my area are not interested in. I have repaired some guns of my on, and others, although I am not a certified ginsmith. Most of the time repairs were made out of necessity to save myself some money. I had a good time over the winter teaching a shotgun safety course to the local Boy Scout Troop in order for them to earn their Shotgun Merit Badge. It was good to see these boys learning to handle and shoot a gun safely. Many of them had never shot a gun before. One of them on the day they qualified dusted 9 skeet in a row, he had never shot a gun before, he was grinning from ear to ear. But I'm sorta getting of the subject. My Remington that I own will put 3 shots into 1/2 inch at 125 yards all day long with every combination of bullet weight I put through it, as long as I do my part right. This rifle is capable of greater accuracy than that. I'm sure of it, if it was fired by a better shot than I am. It is all factory, besides my trigger tuning I done on it, and a jury rigged thing I put on the stock to get my eye in proper position on the scope. I put a Tasco 4x16x50mm. target scope on it. It is the best I've ever had, and among the 2 best I've ever shot. The other was a Ruger M11 in .243 Winchester that my father-in-law had a few years ago. At 175 yards I could put 3 shots in a dime with that rifle. I told him if he ever sold it to sell it to me, but he did'nt. That rifle was a true joy to shoot. I told him he would never have another one that accurate. And this was with factory ammo, not reloads! But he got rid of it without telling me. He trades about every year. So he is one of the people I have to get their gun set up before hunting season. I'm starting to get long in the tooth now, so I'm getting me a few more guns to keep and to pass on to my kids and grandkids. One I'm going to get this year is a lighter weight .308 or .260 to hunt with. The Remington I've got is getting heavier every year it seems. Also going to get a good quality .22 rifle this year. Good shooting fellows.
