Default My 30-06

Just a few pics of my Remington 700 30-06. I didnt want to spend the extra money on a left-hand model...and academy didnt stock them lol. So i got the right hand one. Built up a cheeck rest with durable foam padding and secured it with camo duct tape...hey it works right. Adjusted my trigger to around 2.5-3lbs. Free floated the barrel and am now getting 1/4" center to center groups at 100 yards. Im pretty impressed so far with it. Out of the box it shot around 1-1 1/2" groups. Anyway let me know what yall think. Oh and i also polished the bolt.

Default Does your model 700 have a dropping floorplate

I really like the look of your M700 with the camo stock. Does yours have a dropping floorplate, some of the ADL/SPS have them others don't. Is it setup with a 24 or 22 inch barrel?

Thanks
Karl

Thanks for the comment. It does not have the floor plate so i have to half cycle to unload but most of the time i only load one round. And i believe i have the 24" barrel on it.
