1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    F/S... Remington 40XB single shot action 22-250 Rem with a new Redfield Revenge 6-18X44 scope with Accu-Range system, Bi-pod and 80 rounds of ammo. Rifle has a factory stainless 27 1/4" heavy barrel with a 1 in 14 twist and barrel is in excellent condition, factory 2 oz. competition trigger and it has (NO SAFETY). HS Precision stock with a custom paint job and it also comes with the original Remington walnut stock. The rifle has a very low round count and many serious varmint shooters consider the Remington 40X to be one of the most accurate factory rifle made. For long range varmint shooting the 22-250 is an outstanding cartridge. $1,550.00 plus $100.00 for 3-Day Shipping.

    Hell of a gun. I've had 3 in my life, one repeater and two with 2-oz triggers that were single shots. All came with the same test target and load: 52 gr Remington BR bullet, 33 gr 3031 and Remington BR Primer. Averaged under .4 MOA.

    Who fitted the barrel, and is it a tight neck or noturn?

    The 40X rifles are built in Remington’s custom shop and the barrels are fitted by them. Also I’m not positive but 99% sure the barrel is a “No Turn” barrel because I’ve never had to turn the neck when reloading ammo for this rifle and factory ammo chambers fine and shoots excellent. Thanks for the questions!

    I wish I had never sold my 40X 220 Swift. The "worst" 10 shot group I had was .7" @ 100 Yds. The 40X barrel is long and heavy so I wanted something a little more portable. I should have shortened and fluted the barrel. I'm taking my Winchester Coyote and Sako 22-250's out tomorrow to test some loads. AJ

    Thanks for the kind words, this rifle shoots way better than it looks!

    PS: Texshooter, sorry you sold your 220 Swift but I know where you can get a nice 22-250!
