Michael, tell us more on your new FTR shooter. What are you having built 223 or 308? Give us a list of all your parts, scope, barrel, receiver and stock. Looking forward to seeing you more at Reese Bottom.
I have a McMillan XIT stock on order for my new FTR 308 and can hardly wait till it comes in so I can getting it ready for next year. Built on a Remington 700 40X with a Broughton 5C 1000 yard F-Class barrel 1 in 10 twist and the F-Class chamber for the Berger 200.20X . I’m hoping it’s going to be a good shooter and I know it will if I do my part.
It will be a .308. I have a Sightron 1050×60 FCH scope ready to mount. It has been so long ago I can not remember which barrel maker we agreed on, but it will be 30 inch with 1-10 twist. A Defiance action single action with 20 MIL angle on rail. Bix and Andy trigger. Waiting on McMillian A5 stock.
May wait until I get the stock to order a rear bag. Can not decide on flat top or tapered, but probably Protektor with handle and silver ears spaced 1 inch. I think I have all I need to start loading as soon as I can measure where to seat bullets for the barrel. I have Berger 175, 185 and 200 bullets. I also have plenty of Sierra BTHP 168 left over from my old shooting days.
