Remington 700 AAC-SD project completed (pics included)

I got a wild hair last month and decided to build up a new bolt gun to kill some time while I await the arrival of my LaRue OBR that I ordered last September. The rifle started as a brand new box stock Remington 700 AAC-SD. Here is how it evolved:

- AAC-SD
- HS Precision Stock bedded with Devcon
-Timney 510 Trigger
-Wyatt's DBM
-Triad Stock Pack
-KRG Bolt Lift
-Badger rings/base
-Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 FFP MOA
-Harris S-LM
-YHM Phantom Titanium 7.62

Here is the obligatory picture:

After a little trial and error, I found a load that shoots.
100yd load development:

100yd OCW confirmation. Notice how little dispersion between 3 loads that are 0.3 grains apart, This is what I want.
General Firearms Forum

And finally the 300yd confirmation group.

I am extremely impressed at how well this rifle shoots. I spent the rest of the day banging steel at 600 and 1000 yds. The load is over book max, but shows no pressure and shoots like a laser. There was a lower node at about 43.3 gr but I like to shoot at 600 and 1000 yards regularly. I have read mixed reviews about the AAC-SD but I got one that shoots great.

I think I'll take it out this weekend and try to get an oinker or 2 with it.

I have one of the special run AAC editions (black stock, AAC blackout included) on the way, and will be building it up this winter as a semi-budget distance gun. Nice looking stick you have.

Inspiring...

I've been wanting to put an R700 AAC-SD in an HS Precision stock along with some mods for a while. Your results have given me a push.

Now I just wish there was some good place to stretch the legs around here...

I don't understand why Remington sells heavy barreled rifles in the hogue stocks, much less the abysmal Tupperware stocks. They never shoot very well (off of a bipod or front bag any farther forward than the receiver) with those flimsy pos stocks. The factory X-Mark Pro trigger was pretty terrible as well. Nothing like the old R700 trigger. I'd say the stock and trigger are must change items on these guns. Everything else is preference and luxury.

It used to be that the common wisdom was to get the 700P and upgrade the trigger and keep the HS Precision or get the 110FP and upgrade the tupperware stock and keep the accutrigger.

Now I guess Remington follows the S&W model of "buy this gun and replace everything."

Remington still sells the 700p and LTR with the HS stock, I don't know if current production police guns have the lawyerfied crapmark trigger or not as mine is a 2001 model. These AAC guns are from the SPS line which is the budget line. I'd rather see them sell barreled actions for $150-$200 instead of selling rifles with substandard stocks/triggers.

The stock that I put on my AAC-SD was actually robbed off of my 700P .223, then I got another HS stock for the 700P.

Overall quality of Remington rifles has definitely slipped since the Freedom Group takeover. I got lucky with this one.

My 700VS also loves Varget w 168 or 175. I'll have to try the 178 Amax. 155 Palma loves H380 also at 3,000fps no pressure! 26" barrel is the ticket.
