Ive got an old bdl that was out of the first run rem made of them. It was my brother in laws and i got it when he was killed in a car wreck so it has some sentimental value to me. Its a good shooting rilfe. Its easily moa at a 100 yards. I fitted it into a a cdl stock because i just dont like the feel of bdls. Only thing ive killed with it is whitetail does doing crop damage shooting but have shot them as far out as 400 yards. Ive used both 200 grain partitions and 220 sierras in it. Both are devestating on deer and leave exit wounds you could put your fist threw. I once piled up 4 deer about as quick as i could shoot at 250 yards with it. All 4 dropped in there tracks but I was about deaf for a couple days. I really like this old gun and like the caliber and was wondering if theres any other fans here.
