Re: Remington 700 ml ?

I have an old 54 Cal. that is picky but I still shoot it. The thing I hate is having to clean inside the bolt sleeve so it will go off. I still use caps and I have to clean the bolt too often. I've also found the rifle will group OK if I clean between shots.

    Remington discontinued this ML for a reason...they just plain miss the boat on ML building 101... On the other hand they re-took the course and got it right with the new Genesis, which I own... Excellent ML. Now if you know a lot about muzzelloaders you won't spend a ton of money trying to find a load to shot accurate from this gun. I get 1/2" MOA @ 100 yards and 1.25" at 200. Some of the most expensive ML out there won't get that if the shooter doesn't have the knowledge. IMO I wouldn't spend the money on the 700, but would save up another $90 and get the Genesis and do my home work on load development. Do yourself a favor and don't use pellets...loose powder always. Preferred powder Blackhorn 209. Shoot a sabot bullet and give the gun a chance to break in. 40 - 50 rounds. Clean between each shot on the bench!!!You won't be disappointed!
