Thank you. I really do appreciate it. Sounds like I need to spend some time on the YouTube. Thank you again, didn’t even know where to start. REM age.Google “remage” rem 700 for some YouTube’s on it
If you can rotate your car tires yourself then you can change a barrel yourself. Tons of shops offer them.
It uses a “go gauge” as a depth gauge to control how deep you thread the barrel into the action and then a “barrel nut” as a jam nut to hold it there.
I’d get a contour that’s at least .7” at the muzzle and thread it 5/8x24
Northland shooter supply is a sort of one stop shop for it all with good prices and customer service and you could do it for 700 bucks the first time, subsequent barrels are only like 450 since you would already have the tools.
That load seems very hot!Worked over 700, Vortex HD LHT 3-15x50 G4i reticle, 28 inch Krieger, Serengeti chamber. 53.8-54 RL-17, FGMM 215M, 215 Berger Hybrids. LC 67 Match, fully prepped. Rifle work, chambering, etc. all done in the garage.
Last Saturday lighting the Magnetospeed hit indicator velcroed behind the E silhouette at 1200.
Load is very hot in the high 80 weather.

Then the REAL stepped into the room!With a lot of attention being directed toward the 6.5 mm caliber in recent years and human nature being what it is, shooters seem to be gravitating toward the 'New Show Room Model'. Kind of like going to buy a new car and thinking 'well it is bright and shiny plus it smells nice' (as well as the sales person being pushy) 'so it must be better and maybe I should buy into it'.
Enough of my digression. The venerable .30-06 has been around a long time and was for a time showing up on the leader board at the Wimbledon Cup Match at Camp Perry. Sure there were 7mm Mags and 300 Win Mags out there but the .30-06 usually did what they did for a lot less free recoil, powder consumption and barrel wear. Not to mention potential hearing loss of fellow shooters and bystanders.
My Palma and 1,000 yd. shooting is usually done with a Remington 700 LA that has a 26" SS Krieger 4 groove, twist in 11, tight bore screwed onto it that has a quasi MTU taper to it. Receiver is clip slotted as well as drilled and taped for iron sights and scope rings. It also has a front barrel band when I want to go 'Palma' and iron sights.
Stock is a 40-XC duplicate that was milled from one of three black cherry blanks that I came across through a deal with Barrett Obermeyer.
Sights can be either a Weaver T-16 or a Redfield International.
My Palma and/or 1,000 load is either 53 grains of IMR4350 behind a 190 grain Sierra HPBT MK kicked off by a Fed 210 match primer or 53 grains of IMR4831 behind a 200 grain Sierra HPBT MK also kicked off by a Fed 210 match primer.
Yes my stuff is old school and most likely antiquated or outdated but it still serves my purposes well. It hits paper and puts a smile on my face.
What more can one ask.
P.S That last line was rhetorical in nature.
It was past dusk yesterday when I read your post so took some photos earlier today when the light was better.Awesome. Thanks. Post some pics.
