    Sighting in my 700 LTR

    Had a bit of an audience while sighting in my Rem 700 LTR.
    Don't need any more beef in the freezer so had to call it a day.

    These are beef cattle on a friends farm. The muzzle blast didn't bother them at all (and with an unsuppressed 20" barrel its pretty loud).
    When they started standing in front of me it was game over.

    How do you find the weird fluting on the barrel? Last one I had anything to do with walked as it heated up. No issues with the standard unfluted barrels, weird. Never heard of a Sendero with the standard fluting doing it either.

    Very pleased with it so far. I've shot strings of 15-20 rounds and haven't seen any issues as it heats up.
    This is a 3 shot group at 100 yards which is not too bad.

    if that was a group from a tikka I would bend it round a post and cut it into little bits just to teach it a lesson!

    If any gun i owned shot more than 1/4 at 200 the barrel would be off and used as a cheeter bar on my truck!

    given how moa works 1/4 of a meter would be about right (250mm group) @ the 1600 ,👊 given most people cant make an ajustment for conditions at that range to hold over i would be rather happy with 1/4m and my cal
