    I finally made it to the range today to really try out my Remington PCR in .308 Winchester. Considering that I'm still not at 100% after a bout with the flu last week, I did OK. There a couple of very respectable groups here, but overall--just OK.

    The rifle seems to do better as it warms up (just like my Henry in .357 Mag) as the groups tightened up the more I shot it.
    Overall, I am pleased, but I can’t wait until my other scope gets back from repair/replace and I am at 100% to find out what this rifle can really do.

    The top target is at 50yds for adjusting the scope after bore sighting. The next 3 targets are at 100 yards, 3-shot groups on each target, progressively from top to bottom. On the top and bottom targets, I started with the lower left and worked up to the upper right. For some reason, I did the opposite on the middle target.

    I went back to the range the other day (Tuesday) to shoot my Remington Precision Chassis Rifle in 308 Winchester. I did much better this time since I’m feeling much better and I have a rear rest to steady the rifle. There are some very good groups here. I am very pleased, but I can’t wait until my other scope gets back from repair/replace (should ship today or tomorrow).

    All targets are at 100 yards, 3-shot groups on each target. I’m not showing the first target, as it was to get the rifle warmed up for some serious shooting (as I said before, this rifle does better as it gets warmer).

    The loads I tested were:

    Nosler Custom Competition 175gr with 43.3gr Varget (target #2)

    Hornady Match 178gr with 42.5gr Varget (target #3)

    Hornady A-Max 168gr with 43.0gr Varget (target #4)

    The best group of .35 was with the Nosler CC 175gr.

    Worst group of 1.55 was with the Hornady Match 178gr.

    Good work Gary. I do 3 shots with my RPR 6.5CM to warm the barrel. This is 5 shots at 100y 7/16 moa. I've since got it down to 1/4" moa one hole with my reloads. This was Hornady Match ELD 140g. View attachment 200053
