Re: Questions about Remington Sabots

Bringing this back from the dead. I had a friend buy an ULTIMATE muzzeloader and it came with a pack of 250 grain accutips with the green sabot. He is shooting parker match hunters so he gave them to me. I tried them in my regular 700 ml with the 26"barrel, hunter bolt nose. 78 grains of bh209 ...

Tripple 7?

My dad is going on an elk hunt in September. For 25 years he has shot Pyrodex Pistol powder in his 50 cal whitetail and his 54 Bison. He is needing more powder for his hunt and the only thing we can find locally loose is triple 7 fff. Help me convince him to switch over and what loads of 777 should ...

I think so too. You can also put the factory barrel back on after the conversion if you so wish :yeah:

Is it new-in-box?



I never thought about that?!?!

Anyway no its not new in the box. I Bought it used.

Re: Convert or not to convert?

I have not shot the gun yet so I'm not sure how it shoots. As far as it not being original I think you can reverse the bolt nose mod. The faster twist barrel is more attractive to me than the smokeless powder.

I have a Remington 700 Stainless Magnum muzzeloader with the 26"barrel. IIRC they only made them like 2 years. I bought it to convert but my smokeless muzzeloading mentor said it was too rare to convert. I already did the hunter bolt nose conversion to it. What you guys say? Leave it or convert...

Re: Lost and frustrated..

I have an encore and an oversize hinge pin from Bellm made my gun way more consistent. If you have any wobble between your frame and barrel when its broke open then you may look into that. Also a heavier hammer spring to reduce lock time and a trigger job. If using a BDC then your scope may not be 1...

Re: People with 700ml Boyds (or any Aftermaket) Stocks - Ram Rod Questions

No, it doesn't have to be in a tube, many do though to stiffen the front end and/or for attaching the rod but your already set with the 700ML. The nut that holds the front swivel stud on may get in the way. A blind nut most likely would take care of that. Your factory stock is your template for rem...

Re: People with 700ml Boyds (or any Aftermaket) Stocks - Ram Rod Questions

Why does the ram rod need to be in a tube? Why can't it be in an open channel? It shouldn't touch the barrel if it is free floated and the recoil lug will hold it once it is in place.

Re: People with 700ml Boyds (or any Aftermaket) Stocks - Ram Rod Questions

Boyds would probably do that for a charge. It would be worth it to not risk an accident on a router table. There are other ways to do it by hand tools too. Sent from my ME301T using Tapatalk I emailed Boyds and they said they do not offer that service. I would be happy to pay someone to do it but I...

We check zero a few days before season, leave them dirty. Load them the night before season and leave them loaded the whole 9 days of season unless we shoot a deer with them. Not ever had a problem.

People with 700ml Boyds (or any Aftermaket) Stocks - Ram Rod Questions

I am wanting to put a wood stock on my 700ml (Not Ultimate) and I noticed the Boyds stocks do not come cut for a ram rod. Does anyone have advice on how to cut a groove in a stock for a ram rod? If I can learn how, then I could even use an ADL short action stock too. I know there are 3 piece collaps...

I did a lot of research and it seems like people have better luck with the 200 grains (.40 cal) than the 250 grais (.45 cal). I have only shot one deer with them. It was a w...
