Nice Groups jerry, bartlein makes one hell of a barrel. 1 in 11.25 is my favorite twist rate for the .308. My 5R was able to shoot 155gr scenars, 168gr SMKs, 175gr BT LRs, and 178gr BTHPs all 1/2 MOA.
Though this does worry me about the 700 AAC this is the second or third mention of accuracy or QC issues with this rifle i've seen and i've just been back on the forums after being absent a year. Friend of mine picked one up today and very much had me wanting one given the price. Don't know if i want to chance it, might have to just get another 5R but the 20" threaded version.
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?" And I said, "Here am I. Send me."
