a steal of a deal!

so i have the chance to buy a remington 700 in 30-06 that has never been shot to the best of the sellers knowledge.... the seller being my grandma. i am trying to decide if i should pick it up or not, i can get my hands on it for 300 bucks, currently its mounted with a leupold scope 3-9x40. but i also have a ruger m77 tang safety that is in my possesion and i dont think its been shot that much as my grandpa owned it and didnt hunt a whole lot. both are completely factory. i want to be killin paper at about 1k and shootin deer at about 800 ish, what would be my best bet as for the gun. the ruger is a 1984 model and i know for a fact the remington is alot newer, its still in the box!

Remington 700 w/Leupold is worth 300$ all day long! Would be the easiest to customize and more aftermarket components available! If you don't want it, post her info, someone will take it!

Re: a steal of a deal!

im sure someone would want to take it! but i think im gonna pick it up and turn it into my long range shooter. its too good of a price to turn away from even if its not my preferred caliber. i know the 30-06 is still capable to shoot long distance but its trajectory isnt as good as some other rounds. all things considered... it will be mine! first new rifle owned and a customizable remington at that!

Turn it into a 280AI, a 6.5 Sherman, or 6.5-06

Re: a steal of a deal!

its the price she offered it to me for and thats part of the reason why i want to buy it rather than give it to me, i have 6 hand me down guns already. i dont have much of a need for another gifted gun that i cant modify the way i want. i have a ruger m77 mk2 in 25-06, ruger m77 tang safety 7mm, 30-30 lever action from about the 50s, 22 pump from about the 40s, and a .22 semi auto, then i have a benelli 12 gauge that i got from my dad, as well as a mathews legacy solocam that shoots like a dream. i dont think i need another gifted gun when i barely have room to store the ones i already have.
