This is my favorite rifle, mainly because It is the most accurate Ive ever owned and to me a accurate bolt gun is more fun to shoot at long range than any semi.

Its a Remington 700 SPS Varmint. Chambered in .243 Win.
HS Precision Stock
Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 FFP
TPS 20moa rail & TPS 30MM super low rings.
Most Accurate Load to date: 105gn Hornady Amax, 40gn of IMR-4350, Federal 210M Primer & Lapua Brass.

Here are a few 100yrd group.

This one is a five shot group I shot at 100yrds yesterday, the two impacts in the upper right were sighters.

3 shot 100yrd group.

The addition of this scope has greatly helped shrink my group sizes.

I'm thinking about working up a different load for this bullet. Dan Newberry recommended I go with 48.1 grains of Retumbo with a CCI250 magnum primer. He said it would out shoot my current load for sure. If I can find some Retumbo I will probably give this load a shot.

I shot some 300 yrd groups yesterday but with a 22mph cross wind they didn't turn out to great mostly about 2" - 2.5" 3 shot groups.

Hopefully, my next upgrade will be a Timney trigger and eventually a new Bartlien 8 twist barrel.

I will tell my friend at the Remington plant that you liked his rifle. It sure looks sweet. I have the exact same scope on back order for my AR10 (which I sold). If I can do half as good as you I would be a happy man. Nice shooting.
