Re: Top factory ammo choices.

i have a rem 700 adl sporter made in 1967, i got it cheap . i have a load with 140 accubond bullets it shoots .5 and even less ; one of the smallest groups i have ever shot was with IT and i have a 6ppc . it does not shoot as good of long range groups as my sendero. it kicks more too because it is lighter and doesnt have a muzzle break.

Man, I'd love to have a 1962 Rem 700 in damn-near new condition.....That would be so awesome. I'd never shoot it. It would be a conversation piece only, since that was the first year of the 700.

Re: Top factory ammo choices.

I shoot in southeast Oklahoma. the farthest shot that can be taken on a deer in our hunting location is 721 yards. I have put 40 rounds of hornady 139 gr sst superformance through it and have shot out to 300 yards so far. I put 3 rounds at 300 yards through a 2" bullseye. The scope is great. The SSFA scope has been the most impressive and has tripled my expectations, the glass is great and the tracking so far has been A+. The rifle is awesome as well. My buddies all shoot Rem 700's in 300WSM and they really like the action and feel of the T/C. The gun is definitely not conventional looking (in my opinion it looks F****** sweet) but once you shoulder the rifle it all seems to come together.

Re: Top factory ammo choices.

HSM has always been a really accurate load for me and probably my first choose on off the Shelf ammunition. Next would have to be the Remington power level III ammunition.
My dear boy if 5 miles away they don't sit up in their beds and ask what the HELL was that, the gun is not big enough!
