Remington 700 (again)

Post by hoobilly » October 10th, 2020, 10:30 am

Went to the farm to shoot my SML and the 700 yesterday.

After cleaning the breach plug in the smokeless muzzleloader I wanted to see where it was from the other shooting session a couple days ago. It shot dead on. You can’t shoot a saboted sml a lot as the sabots distort from the heat.

So I grabbed the 700 and did a 3 shot group. Pleasantly surprised with factory Winchester DeerSeason XP 150g

The one hole is the SML and the 3 shot is the 700

I think the Encore shoots better than the 308.
