A good coyote rifle?

Postby desertdog » Sat Dec 18, 2010 11:51 am

Hi,im new here and i have a question.I recently purchased a new Remington 700adl .243 with snthetic stock and put a Leupold vx-3 scope and harris bi-pod.The rifle came with the new x-mark trigger.I know the scope is good,what about these syn. stocked adl's?I bought it at a wal-mart and the action was all burred up,Gander Mtn. gunsmith smoothed it up under warranty but now im wondering about the quality of this Remington.Anyone else had this experience?I want to use it as a coyote rifle.Thanks.

Wal-mart gets the same guns as everybody else. Its a remington 700, what more do you need to know..... If the gun don't shoot (factory barrel) which can happen with any gun. You always got a grade A action to build off of :)

Do you reload or are you shooting box ammo?

Thanks for the response guys.I just got back from zeroing the vx-3 on my mod.700.Shot a 1.75'' 3 shot group at 100yds. with 17dollar a box 100gr. soft points.Not bad shooting over the hood of my truck with a rolled up coat for a rest,probably do better with a solid rest and trying differnt loads.I dont reload yet but thats next.Oh yea,I forgot to mention the 15-20mph West-Texas wind while sighting in.I'll keep the rifle and love the vx-3.
