rem 700 22-250

Richard I see you finelly got the rifle out and shooting it sounds like its doing a fine job as is, If it is the regular factory synthtic stock you might want to look into another stock a chip in town has tried a couple of them without much success didnt gain over what they did when they were stock without doing anything to them, but I dont recall him having as good a luck as you are with yours. Keep me posted as what you do bring it by and we might make a morning of the yotes here on the farm. :D JIM

To get more Accuracy out of my Rem 700 ADL

If you'd like to try free floating the barrel it is easy and reverseable. Use heavy card stock, 1 or 2 layers, under the action screws, front and rear. Punch holes for the screws to go thru and trim sides fairly even. When the rifle is assembled the effect is to float the barrel. Shim both front and rear screws else the action will be in a twist. good luck from the gunnut69

To get more Accuracy out of my Rem 700 ADL

I have heard of polishing tecknique before but have never tried it. Therefor can't comment on it's effectiveness.. I will say the if you alter the crown to any degree from truly square with the bore the effect on the accurracy of the rifle will NOT improve and may deteriorate badly. If all that's done is a light polish, almost no metal is removed and no damage is done. I would think a round headed screw would be more concentric than something hand turned on a grinder.. When recutting a crown it is imparative that it be kept square with the bore. If the rifle's shooting 1 inch groups now, that's not bad.. I have seen Remington rifles with tiny chips in the terminus of the lands before but didn't know the cause. The best theory I've heard so far is that the button rifling process creates a thin work hardened layer in the bore. The repeated stress of firing causes this layer to shatter or chip away at the rifleing terminus (crown). A careful recrown (perhaps even a lite polishing) will help moderate or eliminate the damage and the accuracy robbing effects...

To get more Accuracy out of my Rem 700 ADL

I really wasn't trying to say the trick wouldn't work, but I try to never recomend anything I've not done myself.. I guess the 'old nra' trick gives away a bit about my age.. not old really, just very experienced... I will give your tecknique a try, as soon as I get a chance. VM-- Glass bedding the front action ring and a couple inches of the barrel, cleaning the trigger pull up a bit(3 pounds is plenty light if no creep or overtravel) and polishing the crown, are places to start.. If your smith does his job right, groups should not get worse and should in fact improve. Just remember, improvement in groups size is a relative thing and when groups get under an inch, even a 10th of an inch is guite a bit.. Also I fear, to get the best posible groups reloading will probably be mandatory... good luck from the gunnut69

Just a little note.. the SX versions of Hornadays bullets are designed to run at velocities under 3300 FPS.. You can drive them significantly faster from the 22-250. Accuracy WILL suffer, if indeed the bullets hold together at all... I would vote for the Vmax or the Nosler Balistic tips.. I've had great luck with both...especially the noslers...good luck from the gunnut69

Hi Gunnut69 i look up Hornady and they said u could run the 50gr SPSX up to 3600 max and it would be ok to shoot it my friend loaded some and shooting them 3800+ shooting threw a CHrony Graf. and they group good too but i am going to load mine around 3600 fps and try them out remeber keep them in the 10 ring or at lest in the black

Varmit Master

If you are looking for a good place to start with a hand load for your 22-250, you might want to try Hornady 55gr V Max Moly Coat bullets with either Varget or IMR 4064 powder. I have had very good luck with these components. For an execelent factory load Hornady Custom in the same bullet gave me sub M.O.A.

Good Luck and Good Shooting

CPB :grin:

!/2 inch groups with factory ammo is quite good. With tailored ammo it should even get better... good luck and be safe from the gunnut69
