You will like the conversion with the rem 700 to smokeless & black powder here's luke's place. Arrowhead Sporting Goods LLC I have around 1200.00 in mine and will shoot.

I love my Savage 10ML II, I have killed deer out to 300 yards in the past. But a normal shot for me in my area is between 75- 150 yrd shot. Great shooting gun with 43.7 grains of Lil Gun, and a 250 grain Hornady SST or XTP with an MMP sabot.

Re: Best long range muzzy???

try dougs muzzleloader forum and click on the smokeless board. There is endless hrs of reading. As mentioned in several posts Luke is very good to work with. He specializes with REM and savage ml. Others on the board do conversions with many different brands and styles. The cheapest is probably the hr in a 45/70 converted.

Re: Best long range muzzy???

Ordered all my parts from Luke at Arrowhead except my stock. He recommended Greg (Fishhawk Customs) from Doug's Message Boards for the build. I spoke to Greg and what a good guy to speak to. Explained everything,parts and why and what he recommed.So they was sent directly from Lukes. A few months later this is what I recieved.These guns shoot lights out!! Never saw or heard of any that didnt shoot. My first Weaver and I have to say..I'm impressed!
SS 700 ml action
Fluted bolt,skeletized handle,Badger knob
SS Pacnor 45 fluted modified taper,Callihan lug
Savage plug w/bushing
Trigger work (2#)
Warne STEEL rings & base
Weaver Super Slam 3X15-42mm w/EBX ret.
McMillan REM Hunter pillared & bedded
Gun weighs 12.5 lbs
