Here is a quick update on the McGowen pre-fit barrel project. To recap, in Installing a pre-fit barrel on a Remington 700, I installed a pre-fit McGowen 1:10″ twist, 25″ long #7 barrel on an old 700.
These are 10 shot groups, fired prone, from a bipod and rear bag. For reference purposes, the black ring around the circle is 1 7/8″.
Group #1, 1.074 (.513 MOA)
Group #2, 1.272″ (.607 MOA)
Group #3, 1.300″ (.621 MOA)
Not too bad for a machine free installation, I’d say it is a shooter! To learn more about McGowen barrels, click here.
