  1. Your best bet is to do a custom build with a .223 Wylde chamber or purchasing a Ruger Precision Rifle in .223 since they (Ruger) state that the chamber can handle 5.56 rounds. You could also do a Ruger scout in 223 as well I went the RPR path originally but ended up selling it to fund a custom build using a Bartlein barrel that was chambered for 223 Wylde. The big question to ask yourself is why choose the Wylde chambering because its really a compromise chambering between 223 and 5.56. If you're wanting to do straight precision work, then I'd go 223. If you want to build a "practical" gun that can shoot both, then consider the Wylde
  2. You have to hand it to the RO with how fast he took control of the guy's hand and showed them the door
  3. As others have said, your best bet is to either a) lower your prices significantly as suggested and part it out or b) put it on consignment at a shop that gets a good amount of traffic through it such as Howell Gun Works. You're going to take a bit of a financial hit either way based upon how saturated the market is right now. It basically depends on how much time and effort you want to spend actively managing your listing vs. giving putting it on consignment and waiting passively (for the most part) for it to sell.
  4. Add another vote for Dashlane. I've been using it for awhile and it really does make the whole password management process much easier, plus you can set an emergency contact in case someone else needs to get into your accounts for any reason.
  5. Definitely start with checking the optics mount first like Bob said. If that's not the problem then I'd maybe take the handguard off and check to see if the barrel nut may becoming loose
  6. Amazon will ship ammo cans and organizers with zero issues. EDIT: I obviously failed my reading comprehension test today by not seeing the big "WALMART" in the title
  7. I saw in the picture that it looks like you're using a bipod on a table - try swapping the bipod out with a sandbag or shooting bag and see if that helps tighten the group up a little by helping you to control the "bounce" a little. I normally don't use a bipod unless I'm shooting prone. If I'm shooting from a bench I use a front and rear bag combo. Keep it up though, the more you practice (and focus on the fundamentals) the more you'll improve.
  8. Yep - my weekends should be opening up soon Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Ahhh...I missed that detail. Maybe a Manners T2 then? I’ve got that on my .308 shorty and I’ve got no complaints (other than I don’t get a chance to shoot it as often as I’d like) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. My vote for the stock (the only aesthetic downside is that it's inlet for the Defiance action): https://www.coreshooting.com/collections/manners-composite-stocks/products/manners-composite-stocks-t4a-for-remington-700-short-action?variant=44403889091
  11. I've used these guys occasionally for small maintenance parts: https://www.handa-accessories.com/index.html
  12. Unless something has changed, the Scout model has a brake and not a flash hider.
  13. Lantac makes a really nice side charger and upper receiver: https://www.lantac-usa.com/product-page/enhanced-bcg-di-side-cahrager-223-5-56 https://www.lantac-usa.com/product-page/usc-billet-upper-side-charging-receiver I know someone that's used these on a build and is very happy with them. They also make a straight-pull BCG as well. They had a complete Lantac straight-pull upper on display at RTSP not too long ago. From what I remember it was basically the same Raven upper with the straight-pull BCG and a barrel that doesn't have the gas port drilled
  14. 6mmBR I believe
  15. I had a little trouble as well getting their website to take the .jpg from my phone but got it done after a few tries. I got my confirmation email from them for the order so I think I’m good now Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
