Will also be ordering a Vortex PST Viper 6-24x50 FFP scope to mount onto her. Ill post some pics when she arrives.

You need to come on and play. I'm going to try to get a 500 yard target set up on my grandpas farm and then later on a 500 to whatever we can safely shoot.

Not really. I used to have a member ship at the local Rod and Gun club, but I let it run out awhile back :(. I need to renew, their longest boards were 300yd and that was plenty me for me. My 243WSSM isn't a target type rifle, but I still had fun plinking at the long range targets.

I like the 243wssm. I bet its accurate.

Is your 243 a Remmy Durand?

No, its a Winchester model 70, Ultimate Shadow stainless steel coyote special or something like that :saywhat:.

I sold a 204 Ruger a while back, it was probably funner to shoot than the 243, but I didn't have much use for it other than wasting bullets haha.

Well, Friday turned out to be a great day. Both rifle and scope were delivered. The rifle of course delivered to an FFL holder. The scope (Vortex PST Viper 6-24x50 ) is really,really nice. I'm starting to think it's actually too much scope for me. However, the reticle is MOA and not MRAD, so, I should be able to learn how to dial it up pretty well.
I must say it has a killer warranty. That being a guaranteed lifetime transferable one. The only qualification for warranty work is to have the scope. Im not sure there is a better warranty on the market.
The rifle (Savage FCP-SR. 308) is lighter than I thought she would be. Which is a pleasant surprise. I will at some point and time get some pics up. I hate to say it, but we accidentally broke our laptop.
So, just bear with me. As for rings, I went with Nightforce Ultra light 30MM rings. I will more than likely add a Harris bi pod and be done with her. Cant wait to get to shoot her. I may very well just record that so y'all can see the gun and scope too. I will be in Atlanta tomorrow and Tuesday. I hope to finally get to fire her this Friday. Oh well, that's the plan. We shall see.
...one more thing, the 20 MOA rail came Friday as well. If anyone knows where to get a Harris bi pod at a good rate, them I'm all ears. Thx!!
