Re: Not all Rem 700 are the same

I tried a Leupold 1 piece right hand long action dove-tail base on my new 300 ultra today and it fit fine. Maybe your's was just machined wrong??? I have seen holes drilled wrong, and have delt with the wrong part in a box. Maybe this was your expierience??? MAYBE!

...if you don't mind a dumb question, what is "dead mule" recoil reducer... thanks... Larry

[/ QUOTE ]

Larry, This is a liquid mercury filled tube made of different medals depending on brand that is used to absorb recoil, and it can go into a shotgun mag tube, or in the stock hidden under recoil pad or you can get them for the forearm and machine out forearm and glass in or they have clamp on styles which you can clamp onto the firearm and allow it to do its thing.

They vary in lenght from 3" to 5" and come .5 to 1" in diamiter approx.

Thanks,
Ben

Ben... thanks for the info... I was able to find the "Dead Mule" on the web... was just a little curious since I hadn't seen this before; sounds like you are happy with it on your rifles, huh?

Bryan D: I did assume I ended up with a receiver that wasn't quite to spec and that may be the case and the Remington rep was just blowing smoke about a different scope hole pattern. Maybe they had a run of some receivers that were out of spec, who knows. Sam.

I've always thought the Mark V scope bases where the exact same as the 700 bases.

Maybe not but, alot of base manu list the same part for each.

Re: Not all Rem 700 are the same

I always understood the same thing about the Rem. bases on Wby. But it is a yes and no thing. Rem. two-piece bases work on Wby. and some one-piece Rem. bases work but only capture one screw hole on the back of the Wby. receiver. At least that is what I know about them. Also the receiver heights are a bit off between the two. Anyway, that is why I tried the Wby. base and as stated before it fits just fine.
