Rifles / Rem 40xb .308 win value?
« on: March 21, 2019, 07:10:19 PM »
Fellow called me to see if I was interested buying his Rem 40xb in .308 win.
He bought this gun from my brother many years ago 40 years ago.
My brother sold it him with only 450 rounds fired, he has only fired 10 rounds since buying it from my brother.
My Smith  bore scoped barrel its pristine no fire-cracking at throat, no copper in rifling and muzzle is great. The gun is in exceptional condition it would be almost 100% except for small mark near heel and to the fact my brother had a professionally done of a gloss finish to protect gun from Hoppes getting into wood will cleaning it has a 2oz trigger .My brother shot a.5 shot .552" group at 200 yards,
He said make me a offer, would not give me a price so I said I will get back to him SAP
I really don't want gun or need it but I would like to get the Lyman Scope for my original 1956 Rem 40x 22lr and sell gun I offered to buy scope but he does't want to break-up
What you thoughts on value with out scope
Thanks in advance for any input

Picked up a old wood 40x stock, bedded it.
 Prepped some Lapua brass, neckturned them  and sent 3 brass to Manson to make me a reamer. Had VX systems Ian Robertson put it together

 I see Peter is no the Canadian dist for Stiller actions

My friend shoots a 6.5x47 lapua he shot the most bulls at Canadian National F class year at Connaught
 I know he uses RL 15 and 130gr Bergers, The 142 sierras and Bergers are very good as well but not enough speed for 1000 yards the 130s work best

Hi Guys & Gals Correct me if I am wrong HV varmint weight is 13.5lbs. Does anyone shoot 223rem in benchrest or is it dead like the deuce?
 I used to shoot hunter class in 70s with a deuce and then .308win a lot of other shooters where using 6x47 and some where building 6ppc and then benchrest kind of died in Ottawa area.
 I shoot some Fclass with friends who shoot the fasttwist, .223rem some Hart barrels Kriegers 28" and factory Savages all with 1/7twist.
 These dam fasttwist really shoot using 80gr bullets, I have seen quite a few 5 shot groups at 300y under
.600 smallest .510" , but the 90grs testing loads trying to get in the high 2800fps, using slow powders like Vt 540, 550, Rl 15 where really tight at 300y would they compete with guns used today in Benchrest.
 My problem will be making weight limit with 30" barrel build is almost done have to weigh everything
#1 who did you shoot with in the Ottawa area? I shot at Stittsville in the late 70 and early 80's. #2 the max weight for a VFS or the rifle you shoot would be 13.5lbs. #3 .308 for short range benchrest if group or score, forget it. #4 .223, well I am going to piss off some people, but I would take it, over a .222, I shot a .222, .222-35, .222-45 and I had to write an article about a shooter taking a factory rifle and turning it into a target gun and the bull barrel Rem 700 in a .223 exceeded my expectations #4 A BR is the way to go at 600yds, from what I have been told. #5, 7 twist for short range is "NOT" going to do it  #6 Could this rifle run with a PPC, ain't going to happen. #7 The short variants of the .22PPC are good  until they run into conditions, then kiss them goodbye.
#1 shot with Toni, Karel VanDuyse, Garry Fields, Clint Benedick,Jim Dick(passed) Americans that shot at some shoots where Clyde Hart, Walt Berger, Dick Brownell, can't remember last names sorry, and many other shooters
#2 thanks for confirmation of weight
On your quote of .308 I assume is for absolute smallest groups ! I shoot Hunter class benchrest and they don't plug to, and the 30br and strait .308win are the big dogs winning most shoots. friend has a tack driving 6mmbr made up by Hart and choses to use his .308win big hole gets more Xs and win more often.
#4 I would agree
#5 Your right 1/12 or 14 probably best.
#6 Bill I would have to disagree here there are two fellows shooting 6ppc in LV, Harts & Kriegers customs,and at 200 they are similar to 223 and do win more times,in nice conditions, but not than mutch better than 223,
at 300y the 223 fast twist heavy Bergers owns them when there are any conditions and just med light conditions
#7 I have not seen anyone with short cartridge 224, I am sure the would work, I know the stubby short cartidges are very good had  Hart barreled 7mmwsm just sold that was amazingly accurate, but recoil is not for my old bones.

 Was at range yesterday and my friend was shooting his 223 rem with bergers at 300y he shoots consistantly under 1" 5 shot groups but this three shot was some what stunning to say the least.
 He has a 28" Kreiger 7.7 twist to shoot 90gr Bergers for F/TR class out to 1000y or 9000m

I lent out my benchrest calipers and just use reg ones so I could be out on measurement probably a little to to center.
 Do you not think with a BC of 551 that the 223 could run with the 6mmppc or 6mmbr.
I am thinking of putting a fast twist 224 barrel on a trued 700 action I have
 It seems to me there is not anyone shooting any 300y benchrest mostly 100 & 200
