    So far this year, Remington!

    I usually hunt with a Remington 700, most of the time since 1974. How did that get to be so long ago? Dad gave me a brand new 6mm Rem 700 that year, and now my youngest son uses that rifle quite a bit.

    This season has been good to me. Decided to do all my hunting with a .30-06 Rem 700, 2-7x Redfield, and handloaded 165 gr Nosler Ballistic Tip bullets.

    Bear at 325 yards
    Antelope at 245 yards
    Mule deer at 140 yards

    The Remington 700 CDL has worked superbly. No question in my mind if the rifle was up to the task. I noticed that I was less consistent at 300 yards while practicing. So I popped a bipod on the rifle for the deer & antelope hunting. It steadied me down and I was able to make good, accurate shots. I did shoot the bear at 325 without the bipod and did well on that shot.







    Regards, Guy

    Nice animals, congrats. One of these days I'm going to make it out west and hunt antelope.

    The right bipod can make a huge difference in your consistency, especially in wide open terrain where the wind can be a major factor. Congrats on the successful hunts.

    Hey Guy - you really have had a GREAT fall season on the big game. That .30/06 has served you well. I'd say it's time to get that bird dog of yours out and chase some feathered game!

    The CDL is a gorgeous rifle...and 30-06 is a fantastic choice for big game in the lower 48. Good shooting, Guy!

    I truly regret the trade with cash!! 'upgrades' I made as a kid. The absolute most regretted, my letting go of a tack driving 700 BDL in 270win with 3x9 Bushnell. I know I am repeating this. Really do miss that particular rifle.

    I sold my 700, 7mm Rem Mag. in the early 90s due to kids and bills......fast forward, empty nest and few bills.

    I tracked down the buyer and asked if he would sell it back to me, surprisingly, he agreed and would only accept the money he paid me back then...$500.

    When I got it back it was as pristine as the day I sold it. Upgraded the optics and I'm circumcising ticks at 1000 clicks.

    Very nice animals and shooting.

    I owned 18 model 700's and one model 7. I got bored with the accuracy, so many were traded off for levers and handguns. I kept a few that were chambered in fun cartridges.

    222 Rem (model 600)
    222Rem (BDL)
    6mm Rem (BDL)
    257 Roberts (BDL)
    7mm Mauser (Mountain Rifle)
    308 Win (78 Sportsman)
