    Too bad it cost $2.50 a round for handloads. That day we shot the "light" loads, was like 220gr of Retumbo and a 350gr bullet....

    The size of the action is almost as big as the handguard on that M4..lol
    220gr of Retumbo is the "light load"

    If you think about that, the charge is 4X what we run in our 308's and the bullet is only twice as heavy.
    Pretty awesome!
    I hope to shoot that bad boy again some day, that pic was about 4 years ago, up at the Darrington spot.

    So far I've only just broke in the barrel but its a shooter. Shot 5 shots at 25 to center clean 5 shots at 100 to zero clean Last 5 shots on paper after cleaning and being zeroed. One flyer but the other four produced a .213 group. S

    Excellent thread. Some nice work here. Love the 5r, especially the brake. Can't stop staring at it because it totally reminds me of the brakes on the M109A3s I served on back in the day

    Here is my newest toy, broke it in today, was pleased with the results!
    260 Improved 30 http://6mmar.com/260_Imp_30_.php
    Rem 700 receiver
    PTG bolt with M16 extractor
    Benchmark Sendero Barrel 24" , 5R rifling, 1:8 twist and benchmark tactical brake.
    Timney trigger, Bell and Carlson stock (glass bed by benchmark), AIC bottom metal, carbon fiber Badger style bolt knob.
    3 shot group with 260 rem ammo (handloads) was less than .25 moa, cant wait to see what happens with actual 260 improved loads.




    Here is a pic of 260 rem ammo (my handloads) and what the brass looks like, after fireforming it.
