Got a spare 700, and LSS chassis sitting around. I'm thinking it's time to build a .223AI truck gun. The whole plan is to make the deal as user friendly as possible. I'm thinking 18", 1-8" for a steady diet of 75 eld. What contour tube is going to make this be the one I want to grab every time?

I had the same setup in 6x45 with a Remington sporter contour.

I liked it as it was so I guess either a dupe or probably a #3 would work fine

I have a barrelled action w/ a Rock #3 @ 22". Think I'll bolt it in to see how she feels. I was thinking going shorter, and a tad thicker, but no point if it ends up wrong.

I'd go Greyboe Terrain from RHR,wearing a Hawkins DBM for $399. Then I'd call James and go 7" 223/223AI(whatever he had on the shelf),chop to a length that suited and feed it 88's.

Pull the rearmost forearm stud and rock that bitch..............

Got James on the horn yesterday and a 7" 223 Match Bull spout,will beat me home. I'll chop at 21" or so and launch 88's expressly.

Prolly won't suck.............(grin)

Do you anticipate being able to reach the lands and be within MDT mag restrictions with that freebore?

I've got the same 7-twist 223 match in a Varmint contour and have yet to try 88's. I'll be very interested to hear of your results.

There's .090" freebore on that reamer,which is a pretty friendly place.

I'll take pics,once I'm home and it's assembled.............

I was under the impression the Terrain was pretty heavy, but maybe not? I should have said originally, but the the kiddos are getting to the age when they are going to need gub to flog on, and they may as well be forming brass for me while they are at it.I'm also thinking the adjustable LOP on the LSS can't hurt either.

I missed the kids part. The Terrain certainly has added mass and wouldn't be the best suited there(nor close).

The handy/dandy Chassis build will connect the dots you want and let everyone play. Had a 18" fluted Rem Mag Sporter 223AI in a LSS and it didn't suck. I personally prefer a "real" stock's ergo's,but for what you are trying to do...a chassis will reliably get you there.

Stay OEM recoil lug,as the LSS mortise is trite(as compared to a XHCG and others of the ilk). Cheek risers are easily arranged,if needed and I'm a fan of the RSS self-adhesive neoprene version,if only to fight the bite of cold weather.

Load mags and turn 'em loose.............(grin)
