Looks really good... Did you cut the barrel yourself or have it done?  Excellent

Thanks, Dogger.
Feels like I bought a new gun....Smile
 
Bob @ Upstate Armory Group cut and recrowned the barrel, Trays.
Thanks for the compliment. We'll see how she shoots tomorrow, but it feels and handles better now.

So I could cut about six inches off, and my back wouldn't hurt, and it'd handle better. What do you suppose that would cost me under the Obama plan?

Funny Billy!
Excellent
Say Mark, What Caliber/Model is BB, Ive always liked the looks of your rifle! From what Ive read about cutting down 308 barrels it will not affect your accuracy, maybe even improve it. But I am curious about Velocity loss? Please let us know...A few months ago Wes showed me the 308 Rem he hasRemington Model 700 Stainless Special 5R Milspec, he sent me this article-http://www.sniperschool.com/sniper-rifle-barrel-length/
 
I think the cut down barrel looks cool, it should be a good shooter.

Julio, Black Betty was already a total shooter!  Mark will be crying the blues if she isn't anymore.  I try not to fix something thats not broke! Shocked  We'll just have to keep our fingers crossed.

Thank You Mark, Do you ever use it for hunting or is it strictly target?

So far, it's been pretty much strictly a range queen. Hunted a few times with her in the briar patches. Should be little easier.
Never shoot further than 300 yards or so.  
One of my reasons for chopping it was to make it a little more versatile, like for hunting. Probably top her off with the new SS Variable. Yippee
 
I've always liked the short, fat barrels on the Remingtons, like the SPS Tactical, but they don't makie the leftie.....Loco

Well this will help ya in the thickets, I almost bought the Remington Model 700 Stainless Special 5R Milspec awhile back. I talked myself out of it cause its to damn heavy, close to 9 lbs. It was suggested to me by Wes to cut it down to 18 or 20" by Wes.. This was to lighten it up some, plus make it handier to use....
I do not see your 308 on the Winchester web site.. Do they not make your rifle anymore? In fact I did not any tactical rifles.
