I traded up from my Remington 700 .223 to a Remington 1903A3 in .30-06. It's going to be prettymuch exclusively run on cast bullets once I get a mold or two. I've heard the 03A3 likes cast bullets, and damn it is smooth... The trigger feels like its around 2lbs, and it already had a pair of Weaver bases on. It's bubba'd, I know, but it's a SWEET feeling rifle. I'll be taking it out for it's virgin sighting in tomorrow... can't wait.
