Hello there and welcome to my second videocovering the Remington 783.
In the first video, I talked about how to achieve excellent shotgroups by reloading your own ammo.
However, I received a few messages from folks who simplywant to go hunting or do some target practice with ammo that they can find off the shelffrom their local gun store.
Can the Remington 783 excel in this regard? We will find out.
Oh, and one more thing, if you watched the first video, you know that I was not ableto hit a clay pigeon at 452 yards.
Well, this time I redeem myself.
Well, sort of as you'llsee in a few.
Ok, here we go.
For this comparison, I selected three huntingrounds and two very popular target rounds.
Here is how I structered my testing to maintainconsistency; all rounds were chronographed and shot in groups of five.
The rifle restedon my Caldwell Lead Sled for stability and between each set, I allowed the barrel tocool down for about 5 minutes or so then I cleaned it with a bore snake.
Finally, beforeshooting each group, I sent two fouling shots downrange.
By the way, the barrel on thisrifle is 22 inches, chambered in.
308 Winchester with a 1 in 10 twist rate.
Ok, first up isthe Winchester 168 grain Ballistic Silver Tip.
Second is the 150 grain Remington Core-Lokt.
Third is the Winchester 150 grain ExtremePoint.
Fourth is the Federal Gold Medal Match 168 grain Sierra Match King.
As you can see,the group was coming together until I stabbed the trigger on the last shot.
Fifth and finalis the Federal Gold Medal Match 175 grain Sierra Match King.
And the winner of the day is the 168 grainFederal Gold Medal Match.
Even with my stabbing the trigger, it still shot under 1 MOA at100 yards.
The extreme spread of 25 fps and standard deviation of 9 fps is very good.
However, the winner of the consistency trophy is the 175 grain Federal Gold Medal Matchwith an outstanding 4 fps extreme spread and 1 fps standard deviation.
It just didn't performwell accuracy-wise in my rifle.
For the hunting rounds, sure the groups were not great onpaper, however all of them will make hits to the heart or lung area on any North Americangame animal out to 200 yards.
Ok, time to smash some clay pigeons with my150 grain reloads.
To boost my confidence, I set up the first one a little closer at250 yards, punch in the data into my ballistics calculator and dial up the elevation.
Firstshot is a hit.
The next three clays were placed at 385 yards.
I know, it's not exactly the452 yards from the first video, but I had to find another area as someone beat me tothat spot.
Anyway, I ended up dialing up too much elevation because the next 4 shots flyover the target.
I dial down a few clicks and score a hit then follow that one up with another hit.
The last clay, I get too excited and the round lands right in front of it.
With my last round,I focused on my breathing and slowed things down a bit and it resulted in an obliteratedpigeon along with a rolling rock.
Kinda cool actually Well, I hope you guys enjoyed this one.
Aswith all my videos, I had a lot of fun and while shooting those pigeons I was secretlywishing for more magnification on my scope especially since the rifle was on a very steadyplatform, however this is my hunting rifle so the 3 to 9 power will remain on it forthe foreseeable future.
Take care and see you in the next video! Thanks for watching!.
