    Remlin 444 Range Report

    Ive never done a range report before but since I had so many requests....

    Probably not the most proper range report as I only tested one ammo. It is Hornady Superformance 265gr Interlock bullet @ approximately 2400 fps from a 24" as is stated on the box.

    I mounted my favorite scope onto the rifle. Leupold Vari-X III 1.5-5x20. Weaver base and Weaver Grand Slam rings. Limbsaver slip on recoil pad added as well because....well....you know. I may end up adding the Limbsaver factory fit pad at some point as the slip on makes the LOP a bit too long.



    All I can say is that I am pretty impressed with the this rifle and the Hornady Superformance ammo. It jolted me just right every time I squeezed the trigger. Not too much for me to handle but enough to smile about the fact I was firing a serious rifle and enough to not want to fire any more than a box at any given session.

    The main 5 shot group I fired was done from a fully loaded rifle at 100 yds. The action was cycled between shots and the subsequent rounds were fed from the magazine this way to best simulate real world field accuracy shot after shot. I had fired 5 rounds prior to this to get the scope zeroed so the barrel was warm. Each for the group was fired with about 1 minute between firings. Here is the first and final group I shot with the intention of firing as tight of a group as possible. I would have shot more groups but after this one I adjusted the scope a bit higher and fired a few more to confirm the setting and by that time I had enough of getting tossed around the bench.

    I have some Remington 240 gr on the way. Maybe I can enhance this range report with that soon after I get it.

    Looking good. I assume you had no issues, since you didn't mention any.

    No issues. It loaded and fed fine. Trigger is probably 5 lbs. Wish it were better but that is typical at least. Ejection is not the strongest but maybe that is because I am used to pump shotguns ejecting very enthusiastically. My 1894 and 1895 all eject kind of sluggishly as well. They all eject positively just not with any sort of authority.

    Good group, and glad the rifle is trouble-free. I'm a big fan of the 1.5-5x Leupold and the other low powered Leupold hunting scopes!

    Thanks for the well written range summary. It’s encouraging to hear that some people are finding serviceable rifles without a JM stamp.
