Recieved my new gun today. It's a rem 700 SS action with a 25" McGowan barrel. It sits in a Boyd's laminate stock where the action has been bedded & pillars added. It also has the recoil lug installed. It will have a new Nikon 4.5-14x40 sf installed this evening. To say I'm excited would be an understatement. The gun was built by fishhawk on Doug's for another gentleman who sold it to me.

P.S. All of mine are McGowen's, and all shoot sabotless with no knurling or anything, of course they shoot saboted loads equally well.

What are you shooting sabotless? Was just gonna shoot Barnes 195's w/light blue sabot this season as I had a bunch & recieved 60 more with this gun.

With the HLB sabots I'm shooting 62 gn of H-4198 and the 195 Barnes just like you, also the 200 SST is awesome too, especially at half the price, lol.

Sabotless I bump it up to 65 gn of H-4198 and the 275 gn Parker Ballistic Extreme bullets with a wool wad.

The Barnes are moving about 2700 fps, the sabotless Parkers about 2600fps, though a bump up to 70 gr of H-4198 would get me back to the 2700 fps range nekkid also.......

These guns are AWESOME!!

I've toyed with the idea of selling my "Ug"......but she wouldn't be cheap........and I'd probably regret it.......5 shot groups I can cover with a quarter.........
