Re: 1964 700 BDL Mountain Rifle

Good luck with your '06. I've recently gotten into the '06 based cals. again with two 270's last year and a 35 whelen this year. I really need to get a deer tag this year to blood one of the new rifles, and here in N.D. tags are scarce(I got bumped to the secondary drawing already).

It is actually a BDL Custom Deluxe. Mountain rifle versions were not made until 1988. It is a nice clean looking rifle and should serve you well.

PS. If the scope is an older tasco and made in Japan they are pretty good scopes. I have one on a beater 06 that has been going stong for 30 years.

Well fist off its not a mountain rifle. They werent introduced till the 1980s. Its an old bdl. Before you religate it to beater status you might want to shoot it. those old bdls can be some of the finest shooting factory iron ever made.

Re: 1964 700 BDL Mountain Rifle

The reason that I called it a mountain rifle is it has a 20" factory barrel. I've had a couple of the early 700 BDL's, and you are correct, they can be really good shooters. It definitely is not headed for the scrap heap...Rich

Rem put 20" tubes on standard cal.s the first year or so with the m700 for some reason. Truth be told-- probably won't matter even 50 fps for you.

Actually, less velocity won't hurt at all since I test expansion with reduced loads I just won't have to reduce as much!.......Rich
