I have the Young chrome carrier. Works fine but the interior machining is just OK
With the original Redfield Sr. mounts on a long action you don't worry much about eye relief...that was Leupold's job!
This is my first 700 in quite awhile, and a bit of a departure for me lately.
This is a Remington 700 in 25-06. To complement the rifle we bought...
I will not begrudge your choice, but have you seen what a 60 gr. partition launched out of a 22" 223 Rem. can do to a critters throat at 200 yds?
I would not argue the point that it is adequate for game under 200lbs. You are essentially talking 7.62X39 class performance which is about on...
A 24 cal 105 gr. Scenar at 243 Win velocities will be flatter than a 130 gr. 6.5 Grendel @600 yds.
one time I took a shot at a large 'coon with my 223, actually got two with one shot.
I will never own one. People have different tastes but if I would need a rifle that big (I never will) I suspect I would be looking at a H&H
A lot of 35 Whelen fans for the 700 classic! Maybe a smart business move : bring it back in 35 Whelen
Why the bottom screws over the top screws?
Lets pick one and say 6.5X55
And I believe Timney makes a trigger which would drop in to remedy the Remington trigger issue
I used a weaver mount and aluminum irosighter rings, if you do go with a scope. Worked well. A quality scope adds 30 min. to your hunting day...
In todays market, what mounts and scope would you place on a 700 Classic?
However it should be noted that some rails impact the ability to top load quickly.
When my oldest was 10 he shot his first deer with a Kimber 270 WSM. Unsuppressed and full length stock kneeling, off a monopod at 100 yds.
An endearing tale...
I had A NIB 2001 Remington 700 Classic in 7mm-08. Nice gun, close to one MOA shooter. Should have kept it. It had a rather unforgiving recoil...
For me Savage jumped the shark awhile back with the whole bottom bolt release and centerfeed action (blechh!)
