    Remlin accurizing

    Do you still work on Remlin .44 mags to accurize them? This is an older one ( 2012 - 2014 ). It does seem to run good. I have a friend that hunts with this rifle. He has tried all kinds of ammo and some reloads. The reloads are the best but 5 to 7 inch groups at 100 yds. After all the tests I'm sure it is a rifle problem. He is not much of a gun guy so working on it is not an option. He is about to give up on it and get a Ruger in .308. If he can find someone to get it to shoot 2-3 inch groups at 100 yds he would like to keep the rifle.
    Have a great day.

    No .44 mag, but I have two Remlins, a 30-30 & a '94C in .357. They are only a year or so old though & I think Remington finally started getting it sorted out by then.
    The 30-30 does an inch @ 100 with a scope & the .357 does 1.5-2". Both are lower powered target loads. Full powered loads open up to twice as much.

    It is hard to tell what is causing his accuracy problems but he might start by having a gunsmith look it over. I like to work on my guns but if it comes down to time and money it could be right for your friend to buy a new rifle.

    I'm not sure buying a new one will fix the problem as the Rems are still having problems. A JM would be good but that is not an option at this time.
    Have a great day.

    I have/had a recent Remlin .44mag. It’s the same way.
    most factory .44mag is for .429” bores. Marlins have .431” bores.
    My gun did shoot decent with .432” cast bullets in .44Spl leadings.
    Bore was best described as “fuzzy”. Not Remlins best effort.

    Also the very thin/light barrels don’t help.
