Holy Cow! You waited 4 months for the weather to warm up??? It was +23F today and I thought it perfect for range work. Balmy, even.
Nice looking rig, Amigo.~Muir

Now, don't be saying you disbelieve the .3 inch groups on the test target. If you are not shooting those groups, we will call operator error, at the range or loading bench.

I have a SIG SHR 970, and it is very accurate. Prepare to be pleased.

And Muir, it was +14F this morning in the Sunny South, high of 29. But beautiful sky and no wind. I think tomorrow the 7x64s and T3 7mm-08 might work out.

We had -24F yesterday. (with a 15 mph wind) Thank God for block heaters. Shoot while the weather's good.~Muir

muir you have missunderstood what i meant in my post,i have waited 4 months for the rifle to arrive and to getting the rifle warm while shooting it not about the weather,your right its a nice rig i cant wait to see what it can do.southern i did not disbelieve the the .3inch group on the test card with factory loads but you can normaly improve with homeloads.i am glad that your sig 970 is a good shooting rifle i hope that mine is as good and i can replicate the test card with my loads.my operator error is very good ha ha ha,thanks guys for the input from one very happy sig ssg owner

I own two SHR 970s, .308 and .280, with an extra .270 barrel. A two friends own .30-06s. They all shoot, out of the box, groups will all bullets touching, with just hunting loads. The handguns and the military riffles my friends and I have are the same solid, precision construction. If you have not gone on to YouTube and watched the SSG 3000s in rapid fire matches in Denmark, Sweden, and Norway, do so.

That 18"barrel looks a tad long Jason,is that why you put a coke can on the end and put your best mod on the shelf behind.[next to the cupboard full of varget?]

p.s. check out rover's post 25 06 for charlie

No surprise there. And every SIG SHR, STR, 3000, K-31, and military battle rifles I have ever seen were not picky about the loads. Just dump any good ammo in them and they shoot it.

I took a friend hunting, and all his rifles were in California, so we went to the range to shoot a few and let hm choose one. He shot my SIG .308 five shots and said, "This makes me sick. It shoots as well as my M40 ( he was a Marine sniper in Iraq), and weighs about half as much."

Some of the NATO armies use the SHR 970 in a tactical stock as their long range rifles, just basically a hunting rifle.
