Remington 783

Remington 783 new in 2013 and I am getting around to checking one out. I picked one of these up at a sport shop for $250 with a scope package (budget bushnell 3-9×40 scope that will find a home on a 22 rimfire). I chose the 243 winchester chambering because I wanted a short action and the cylindrical receiver with a minimal ejection port was to much to resist at that price. I’ll post a picture when the Leatherwood Hi-Lux Uni-Dial 4-16×50 scope is mounted in the beefy 30mm rings and tightened down on a EGW 6″ picatinny rail. Remington claims sub-moa performance with quality factory ammo, I have preped some winchester 243 brass along with annealing the neck and shoulder to aid in smooth fire forming. IMR 4064 and 4831 are the first choices to season the bore and hopefully drill some bugholes!
