    So far this is working out better then I thought it would. The scope is a Burris MTAC 4.5-14 30mm tube with 50mm objective. When I ordered it the info said the crosshairs were spaced for "flat shooting cartridges". regular price was over $500 but I bought it for $198 and $15 shipping so I thought I would try it. In the paperwork that came with the scope it says the crosshairs are spaced for a 22-250 and a 55 gr bullet at 3650 fps.        The scope is clear and seems well built but the "clicks" when adjusting the scope are not as positive as I am used to. As long as it moves as it is supposed to it will be fine.     The rifle is great I really like it. The stock fits me great and has an aluminum bedding block but the barrel channel can be pushed around enough to make contact with the barrel. I may open up the front couple inches just to get a little more space in the barrel channel. The Hart barrel cleans up real nice. The after market clip system works great and is going to be easy to get the rifle loaded in a hurry. The Remington 700 action is nice and smooth thanks to the gunsmith. He did a great job tuning it. I think of a Rem 700 action like the chev 350 engine. There were millions of them made and aftermarket parts are cheap and abundant.     I set the trigger on 2.5 lbs when I got the rifle. After about 50 rounds fired and another 50 dry firings the trigger had a noticeable "creep". By adjusting it down to 2 lbs the creep disappeared.  If it happens again I will install an aftermarket trigger.       Its been fun playing with it.    Thanks for the interest.

GOBI   I like the timney triggers also but have never replaced a trigger. Is it just 2 pins to be removed and the old trigger comes out.

It's been a little while. Sounds right.  The one pin was a little tricky getting started. Good instructions were included with trigger.

    Well using the 2nd crosshair it was like 13 inches low at 700 yards. the 3rd 4th and 5th crosshairs were very low too so next time I shoot I will try the crosshairs in 50 yards increments. Even though I was hitting low, I did shoot "2 shot" groups out to 1100 yards.  Some groups were pretty impressive but some weren't. After 900 yards the groups really opened up and my final group at 1100 yards was 2 bullets 32 inches apart.    not good but hopefully I can do better.
