Latest acquisition - Rem 700 LTR in 6.8 SPC (+range report)

I have been fondling this every time I am down at the local gun shop. Finally broke down and bought it. $800 plus sales tax. I was also looking for a .308 bolt gun but alas, the budget does not permit equipping two new guns this year. All my shooting will be at a club I belong to and I am limited to 200 yards. I always liked the idea of something in between .223 and .308 for a bolt gun for the distances I shoot. I've shot my friend's .270 bolt gun a few times and like it but that would mean introducing another caliber which can't be shared with other guns. So 6.8 SPC it is!

Timney trigger set to 2.5 pounds
Super Sniper 16X
NF 20 MOA base
NF standard height rings
Harris BRM-S bipod w/swivel lock

Range report possibly at the end of the week.

The Super Sniper use to reside on my 18" SPR which now sports a more practical 2.5-10X Nightforce NXS. Eventually I will replace the Super Sniper with a Falcon FFP mil/mil scope. US dealers never have the one I want in stock and I may be forced to by from a UK dealer.

Congratulation on the LTR. I have one and love it. I have tried the SSA 115OTM, 110PH and Rem 115MC. It really likes the SSA ammo. Just ordered some of the SSA 110 AB and looking forward to trying it. Unfortunately the past few times I have made the trip to the local DNR outdoor range (only place I can shoot further than 25yds.) it has been filled by the small percentage of shooters who insist on unsafe practices, so I end up leaving without even getting the rifle out of the truck. Luckily I just found another range (private, pay as you go) that I can shoot up to 200yds. Hopefully my schedule and the weather will cooperate and I can get out there soon.
Here's a photo of the one I have. It has a Leupold 56120 (3.5X10X40) Mark 4 PR scope, Leupold 20 MOA base, Leupold Tactical rings (med height) and Harris bi-pod.
