    I've a factory 700 SPS Tactical barreled action myself. I had originally bought it to start a .223AI project around 2007.

    However, with just a touch of load development the damn thing proved 1/2 MOA consistent. I went ahead and skim bedded it in the most LOP adjustable stock available at the time, and it now gets pulled out when I want to get the wife or M-I-L out shooting.

    Older photos, sorry they suck.

    That was one of the best videos displaying trace that I have seen in years. That was really well done, no goofy dialogue just straight to the good stuff.
    We need more of videos like this. Excellent job my friend.

    My Rem 700 SPS Tactical loves 69 SMK and 68 BTHP at about 2750. Such a fun gun to shoot. I was supposed to be rebarreling it and ditching the B&C stock for a chassis. But with Covid I decided to keep it as is and shoot what I got..

    My 223 Ackley. 26" Hawk Hill, XLR Industries Evolution, blueprinted R700 with a M16 extractor, Timney Calvin Elite. Topped with a Burris RT25.

    This rifle has close to 6000 rounds on it. Its spent the entirety of its life as my Trainer running bulk 75gr BTHP Hornady. It rarely needs cleaned, hardly ever loses zero, and shoots .5 moa or better. All the time.

    Its quite literally one of my favorite rifles.

    Stop playing with us, we all know you are hacked. This is probably not your rifle.

    Haha! You caught me!

    I found that picture here in Russia on Google.. 🤣

    Luckily... I have da proofs..

    I like to load it up with 80gr ELDs and play at the local matches with it. This last target is 1173 yards. I go 4 for 4 on it. You'll hear the guy with the cheap ass optic complaining because he can't even see the hits 😉

    There’s no rattle can on that gun. It’s all cerakote and hand distress. Gun was built by a group at a very premier shop. It was just not a “shop” build, it was a personal build gun. Every attention to detail is the same as if a customer had ordered it I assure you.

    Thanks for making this thread! I've wanted to post my new rifle for 6 weeks now. Thanks to ARC's 4th of July sale I got this:

    ARC Mausingfield M7 (.223 bolt face obviously)
    26" Criterion MTU 1:7 .223 match chamber
    TriggerTech Special
    ...aaaand gonna be using that SWFA 10x for a while.

    I'm so happy with this rifle! It was quite an upgrade over the 'ole Savage 12FV .223
