    I Bought a Remington .308 Target Tactical, why not my past Remington's are great!
    The rifle was a recall return on the X Mark Pro trigger. The trigger was all over the map, 4lbs to 9lbs. The trigger had to go, 275.00 later I added a Jewell and it works perfect. First problem solved. Second problem after going through 155gr to 180gr match ammo I finally got two rounds of Sako 180gr Hammerhead touching at 200 yards. Thought I struck gold. Went out to 300 yards and I had 6 to 8 inch spread. On a previous trip using Federal 168gr match I had a 12 inch spread. I have a Savage out of the box with a good stock same ammo 1 inch group at 300 yards. That's with the same scope. I took the gun to a local gunsmith to have it glass bedded. Now I'm in for 375.00 Not to include the money I paid for the rifle. And why would I send it back to Remington, this is the way they sent the rifle out. Would I expect Remington to do any better! I hope after getting the rifle bedded I can salvage this purchase. Not a good investment. At this point big mistake. Shame on Remington! The X Mark Pro trigger should go away! And the VTR barrel what a disappointment.
