Recomendations for .308 rifle?

Postby Koched » Fri 18 Feb, 2011 10:01 pm

Hey guys,

I am looking to buy a .308 to compliment my Steyr Tactical Elite .223 and my 98B. Thought a 308 would fit nicely between these 2 calibers. I went to the local gun shop and they were talking about a Remington 700 Police USR. I want a nice looking rifle with super accuracy! Your thoughts / comments welcomed!

:poke: Keep in mind my opion is somewhat biased: viewtopic.php?f=43&t=2381

I can't speak for the Hospitaller but I really enjoy shooting my FBI-HRT. :bow: Thanks Shadow :bow:

I own my fair share of Bolt Action Production Riffles and I have to say this has to be the smoothest Bolt Gun I has had the pleasure of shooting. My 98B is a close second. Knowing this is a Custom Riffle my expectations were a little higher and this Riffle surpassed all my expectations so far.

I have about 40 Rounds down the Pipe including 20 Rounds for Break-in and I am already grouping .201 MOA at 236 Yards.

Love it!

"Safety" "yea I heard of it. It's that mechanism on the side of a Gun to keep you from shooting people you like".

"Talked to GA Precision yesterday. Conversation basically went straight to "Credit Card Number please"...Gun should be ready in about 4-6 weeks."

I have to agree the GA PERCISION line of 308,s are tops , they may cost more than the run of the mill remington pss series, but they are based off that anyway , i myself hope to have a GA PERCISION HRT sometime this spring - summer

Thanks for the advice gentlemen! I have emailed GA Precision to see if they have a distributor in Australia.

Turns out I can't get a GA Precision downunder! I am now looking at a H-S Precision HTR in .300 Win. 26" Barrel 1 in 10 twist. Any of you guys had anything to do with these?
