    I doubt it, I don't think anything has come out of the Ilion plant since they went under.

    Pop a Midol and hunker down. Things aren't moving very fast or that matter haven't for some time now . The restructuring and then fabrication then distribution is going to take time . But you never know maybe there were some that never got out for shipping they may pop up in small batches. I did read that Rem did liquidate pallets of current stocks befor they chapter out .

    From what I have read when the bankruptcy happened there were pallets of them ready to be shipped.

    So be patient

    I have also checked into 125gr loads I should be getting max 2700fps with these.
    Load up date finally (yeah ok so I have been busy) on my 12.5" barreled Rem 700 PCR short rifle in 308 Win.

    Finally had time to do some reloading for this little rifle.

    I got onto the Hodgdon reloading site and looked up 15" pistol barrel loads for the 308 Win.

    Using Todbartel's quickload info and their data I put together some IMR3031 with 125gr Ballistic Tips and Accubond loads.

    First I finally checked the velocities of the factory ammo I had been using.

    Winchester 150gr Powerpoints gave me a surprisingly low velocity of 2250fps

    Remington 150gr CoreLoks gave me 2370fps I had been guessing they were giving me 2400fps

    47grs IMR3031 which is one grain below max load with the 125gr bullets are giving me my goal velocity of 2700fps = 4 shots gave me 2699fps - 2720fps without any pressure signs.

    What surprised me the first time I took a few shots with the 125gr reloads and 150gr at the same target at 100 yards was the Winchesters @ 2250fps were hitting 6" higher on the target than the 125gr loads now that I have finally chrono'ed the loads and see that there is a 460fps velocity difference I understand the major point of impact difference.

    I've now put together a few more 125gr loads with 1/2gr more powder I get 2740fps with this load and still no pressure signs.

    Next loads I want to test are I have some 165gr Partitions on the shelf thinking of working up a load with them for bear defense - larger game hunting.

    Just checked the Hornady ballistic chart the 125gr Accubonds @ 2720fps with a 200 yard zero is 2" high at 100 yards 1.8" high at 150 yards, 9" low @ 300 yards and 25" low at 400 yards.

    Not bad for a short 29" OAL rifle combo.









    edit to add ballistic chart
