I love my 527,but it's a micro Mauser action and haven't tried drop feeding it. Not sure how well it would work. Nice to switch between scope and open sights with quick release rings. Very accurate and she's classy!
That's an 18.5" barrel,scope is a compact Leupold,rifle is tiny and handy.
Works just fine in my 527 carbine (7.62x39)
That answers that!
A Rem 700 ADL plus a Boyd's stock can be done for about $500-550, which gives you options to get a custom LOP, and a profile which really fits your body, instead of the "one size fits all" factory stocks out there. Worth a thought if you can't find a wood stock model you like, the blind mag deal kinda limits your options.
Lots of hinged bottom metal rifles out there which could be operated like a blind mag - the Ruger 77's or Win 70's CRF is a little nicer for emptying through the top (although it's nicer still to simply dump the mag plate), as it's faster to empty a CRF than a PF.
Only reason I didn't like it was due to the light weight barrel.
Was a "duh" kind of day, I guess.....
As in magazine loading, not chamber loading? That's what I was thinking, too.
