just that some of the articles ive read seem to show then as being very accurate but ive heard enough rumbling on the internet that went the other way. Some seem to have problems getting them to shoot.

Bingo, you got it! I just bought a CDL in November in 7 RUM. I could not for the life of me to getthatthing to shoot consistently. I am very meticulous when it comes to getting something to shoot. I tried altering the needing pressure, and even put it in my sendero stock. No change, it found a new zip code to live in. The fit was decent and the wood was gourgeous. The trigger really sucks. I adjusted it and got it fairly decent. It is not like the old Mike Walker triggers by no means. And to be clear, I am a Remington man from way back, but these new ones suck. I lost faith in them awhile back, then falsely regained when I bought the CDL. And lead time on factory services are about 6-7 months , I am told. To me, Remington is like the heartbeat of America, but right now, it is having a cardiac malfarktion. Nuff said! AIM SMALL, MISS SMALL.
