My first rifle


Recommended Posts

When I was 20 and a poor kid i started deer hunting in northern wi where rifle are legal to hunt with. I ended up buying a Remington 710 package in 30-06 with the bushnell scope on it. Honestly it's been a great gun, I've heard guy bitch about them, but I kinda like mine. The bolts alil sloppy on it but its done its job dropped ever deer I've ever shot dead it its tracks and shot very tight groupings. The biggest thing I've hated about it is the ugly ass gray stock on them, so I had a buddy paint it for me and it looks soooooooo much better!

Oh and last year I replaced the bushnell with a Nikon prostaff 3x9x50

From what I've read the 710 and 700 don't have the same stock and what not. That was my original plan I looked for new stocks for but came up with wont fit 710 or no after market parts for it think they only made this model a 5-6 years.

Thank you sir! And I love the 30-06 to specially for the type of hunting I do. Takes down whit tail deer nicely among other big game I've hunted and would like to hunt, and ammo is fairly cheap and readily available. .308 is now on the list also but when anyone asks or says they are looking to get a deer rifle I strongly suggest 30-06.

This is what it looked like stock
