Remington 700 SPS tactical

Recently bought this rifle, my first ever bolt action. Never knew such a simple design could be so much fun. And itís in the same caliber as my Norinco M305. Quite a kick in .308.





With a Harris bipod attached







I suppose thatís the year of manufacture

How do you see the vote going Classic?

The one that you guys have coming up on the European arms controls. Or is it too hard to tell?

Thatís all we talk about at the range (or better said at the drinks after the shooting). The vote is on 19th May.

Itís a tight race in the polls, so I am still hopeful that the citizens here reject it. Otherwise life will be more complicated for gun lovers.

Great thread here! Love rifles and and admire rifle shooting best of all. Particularly fond of bolt-action rifles and both military and sporting examples live here.



I'll start with the oldest bolt-action rifle I can muster. This Krag Jorgensen dates to 1894 and, with its serial number, I like to think it was manufactured at Springfield Armory in the same month my grandfather was born. It remains a surprisingly effective rifle and cartridge. Over the years I've taken two whitetail deer and a blackbuck antelope with it and shot it in high-power matches at the local level a couple of times, just for fun. The reload in the rapid-fire stages is a hoot! It still gets exercise when the whim strikes me.

Doesn't appear to be enough room for you to shoot very far there hachi.

Spectacular view!

I love owning neato handguns in the forms of 1911s, classic Smith & Wesson and Colt revolvers, but I admire rifles best of all. To be able to engage targets and make things happen "way off over there" is the ultimate form of shooting.

The Winchester Model 70 tribe on hand here.

Left to right: 1937 .220 Swift, 1947 .257 Roberts, 1953 .30-06, and a late 1980s(?) Super Express .375 H&H Magnum.

Ruger in .257 Bob. I like everything about this rifle. It really likes Nosler factory ammunition. Scope is a Leupold 2.5-8x36.

My TAC A1 in 6.5 cm and Surgeon scalpel in .308. Tripod shooting adds to the challenge and fun.

I also have a Remington 03A3, but it's not as nice as yours.

Very nice.
I had a coworker who got a new A3 for $10. But that was in 1963.
NRA DCM had been grading them and pricing up to $25 for the pristine rifles, but they got down to the point that there were not enough left to bother sorting, so they blew them out at random for $10.

Not quite a Bolt Gun, but close.

Merkel double rifle. 470 Nitro.

500 gn bullets going about 2,200 making about 5,000 lbs of energy.

Just received my Savage model 11 back from McMillan having a new carbon fiber pillar bedded stock made for it. This is my hunting rifle that I was totally unhappy with the factory Tupperware stock. It had so much flex and cheap feel it was silly. This rifle is chambered in .338 Federal and has a Timney trigger a JP titanium comp, steel trigger guard, fiber optic front back up sight. The scope is a Vortex 1-8. The only thing left is to blend the steel trigger guard and then Cerakote it and the comp matte black. The McMillan stock cost double what the rifle cost me, but wow what a difference. Worth every penny.
