M24 workup

Just picked up a Remington Defense 308 M24. What do Armorer typically do to the M24 SWS on arrival before they issue it?

Ordered the badger ordnance 20 MOA Remington Long Action rail, not sure which scope I'm going to use on it.

Nice and "light", have to put a pull gage on it tonight. From what I understand you can't screw them up by unscrewing it to much.

Have a 20MOA scope mount coming and hope to get it to the range this weekend

I think you'll be good to go put some good glass on it and enjoy, like that crackho said we would like to see it.

So here are my three shooters, I think I'm done collecting rifles!

The M-14 SE is a SA M1A "Loaded" that has a new trigger, unitized Gas cylinder, barrel. recoil guide, spring and a few other odds and ends. Larue Tactical 20 MOA scope base. Still workgin to find "the load"

AR is build around a Precision Firearms 20" fluted heavy barrel. I've gotten .3" at 100 with that and 69 Gr S BTHP.

M24 SWS is a new from the factory M24. Should have it at the range this weekend.

I said that BS 20 years ago! Lol you ain't never through. Those are very fine looking rifles you have! That Remington is going to impress you when you get it broken in. A guy I shoot with sometimes has one with a mark4 3.5-10 luepold on it. It is crazy accurate he hand loads for it. I haven't started rolling my own yet. What kind of barrel did you put on your m14?

I for one do not find the current Remington trigger to be a good one. Don't know what trigger your rifle has in it, but the current one can not be adjusted to a level that is conducive to accurate shooting versus other available triggers, Jewell for example. Installing a 20moa rail on the rifle leads me to believe you are going to be shooting longer ranges than most but if you install a quality 30mm tubed scope the elevation ability will take you to the 1000yd. line without the rail, rail just adds weight and serves no purpose if not needed. Typically you will absorb some 15 to 20moa to zero rifle in at 100yds. and 30mm scope tube most likely will have anywhere from 70-100 moa adjustment leaving you with plenty to reach out to the 1000yd. line. Depending on bullet weight used come ups from 100yds. will be in the range of 36-42moa still leaving you with more elevation travel available. Just a suggestion.

He probably didn't need one on his m14 either, but if that his cup of tea so be it. He has good taste in rifles in my opinion and if he wants that type rail let him be.

M24

Correct me if I'm wrong but you mentioned you ordered a Badger Ordnance Long action 20 Moa rail? I thought that the .308 was made on the short action..Or is the M24 different?

This particular Remington 308 is built on a long action frame.

Thanks from Stevep51d

The M-24 is one of the best massed produced sniper systems out there. They are all built on a long action because the US ARMY had an idea that one day they may want to convert it to a 300 win mag....that day has come and we now have the M-2010 which is a converted M-24 action in a new stock and its in 300 win mag......I have shot the M-24 out to 1100 meters. If you can do your part, it will do its part. Great rifle, they really like the 175gr Matchkings at 2650fps........

Thanks from XM25Ren and Stevep51d

If I were you I'd buy the 10x leupy Mk4 M3 scope with the M118 turrets, mildot reticle, and Mk4 steel rings. I think that's the appropriate optic/ring combination. I can't tell you the height of ring though. My M24 is the favorite of my inventory. If you have only a few rifles and that is one, you are now ruined lol everything will be compared to that rifle. ;) well, my SSG 3k is up there with it but doesn't have the same nostalgia.
