Mine has a Colt lower with a Geissele SSA-E trigger and a White Oak Armament Varmint 18" Upper with 1 in 7" twist. It consistently shoots 10 shots in less than 1/2" at 100 yds. On top it has a Bushnell AR/223 tactical 4.5-18x40 mm scope with Warne High QD rings. It is a tack driver. I also put a Custom Turret Label on the elevation turret which is calibrated for 65 grain HPBT Sierra Game Kings.
I have an old Rem. 700 BDL (1972) in 6 mm Rem. with Leupold 4-12 VX-2. This rifle covers everything. I use an 85 gr Sierra BTHP. It shoots a dime size group at 200 yds. I glass bedded the barrel and action. I have taken yotes, deer and hogs all in the same day on the same stand.
I shot a Remington 700VS chambered in 220 swift topped with a Springfield Armory 4X14 scope until last Saturday. Left it on the hood of the truck drove off and it hit the asphalt. A very sad and tragic day in the guns life. Its at the gunsmiths now repairs will consist of
1. A new Leopold 6.5X20X50
2. Tactical bolt knob
3. barrel will be cut and recrowned
I hope it will shoot as well or better than it did. I'll post pics later if I can figure out how to get them out of my I phone
My objective is to shoot coyotes and feral hogs. I plan to use a Century Arms C39, V2, AK, 7.62mm x 39, using a Burris Predator Quest scope, 4.5 x 14x, 42mm, with the Ballistic Plex E Reticle. I can also use my M1 Carbine, 30 cal. with iron sights. The AK probably packs a bigger punch. Not sure how effective the M1 would be on a very large hog. Any opinions on the effectiveness of either rifle?
