6mm remington

Hello, i have acquired a Remington model 700 ADL with a wood stock and factory sights. I haven't seen an ADL in 6mm before, can anyone tell me about the rifle. I have been told that it is rare.

I know 6mm Remington is popular in Rem 788 (1980's) but 700 ADL? I guess I'm a little behind the news what Remington is making these rifles.

As far as I can tell it was made in 1980. It is the first ADL that i've seen in 6mm. I see a lot of BDL's, 788's and Ruger 77's in 6mm, but this it the first ADL.

Re: 6mm remington

I have an ADL that I bought for my dad in January 1975 to shoot coyotes with on the ranch. I sighted it in and he put it away. It was not shot until years later when he told me that I could have it back, as he never used it anyway.

I have shot the gun a lot and killed over 100 deer and several antelope with it. It is a great gun. It now wears a fiber stock and is glass bedded.

Using Hornady 100 Interlocks at 3000 fps, I have killed deer with it out to 326 yards.

I did not realize that they are rare. My gunsmith did tell me that the period when it was made, was some of the best quality rifles Remington has turned out. I think that I will hang onto it!

It may get a medium-heavy barrel someday, though.

Re: 6mm remington

We have a little Remington 600 carbine in 6mm Rem. It has a short barrel with a plastic rib on top for the iron sights. My dad got it in the 60s or 70s when he was a kid. It's taken many a cat, deer, etc and now my son shoots it. I've done a little reloading for it, but haven't taken the time to dial in a super accurate load.

Re: 6mm remington

I've shot a 40XB in 6mm for decades and I like it a lot.

Very accurate, easy to load, light recoil. I use Sierra 85 BTHPs stepping at 3460; great long range load.

It's heavy to lug around, but your ADL won't have that problem.
