Re: Remington 700 quality
Well, this has been an interesting thread to say the least. Almost like asking which powder and bullet to use in a particular rifle.
I am left handed, and only have purchased LH rifles, and that makes my search that much harder. All of my rifles are Remington 700's LH and shoot extremely well, 1/2-1 inch. I do have an exceptional shooter, Magnum research LH, Sako action 7mm that shoots the lights out with any bullets, easy 1/2 inch, factory loads also.
I finally found a Remington CDL, LH in 243 back in Oct that I always had plans to turn into a better rifle with the help of Clarance Hammonds in PA.
I purchased it used, but barely with only a few down the pipe, and thus gave it a through cleaning before use. I put the scope on it, loaded some factory 100 Grain nosler partitions in it and dialed it in.
The last group, was 1 inch.
I am going to try some other bullet options, but not bad for a Remington, factory ammo, and just one bullet option.
I am not closed to other rifle options, like Savage as I have heard great things about their ability.
However, I personally have not found the trouble with Remington, others are having here, not exactly sure what the answer is, but I am happy with mine...
