    I put this package together today for mid range distance. Its a Kimber SVT Tactical M84 18.25" fluted barrel. Its chambered for a .223 Rem. I am wanting to get sub groups at 100-200 yards. I know the .223 Rem. is rated to 600 yards. Should be pretty good at 200 yards for sub groups with the Leupold 3X9 50mm optic. I haven't shot it yet. What do you guys think? Is this a realistic goal?

    Eighteen feet is kinda long, isn't it?

    Is it bedded on an aluminum block or down onto the wood?

    When you say "put this package together," do you mean you built it? If so, where did you obtain the barrel? Did you cut the chamber?

    I have thought about getting a barrel chambered tightly to my handloads for certain long distance shooting.

    But it will give you one hell of a grouping at 500 yards.

    :wink:

    Sure, if you can wait the 5 hours it takes for the bullet to exit the barrel.

    Does Kimber believe glass bedding to be superior to a metal bedding block?
