My New Remington 700 BDL in 8mm Rem Mag - that I acquired through a trade. The rifle was first purchased in the early 1980s and has had 10 rounds fired through it since the date of purchase and as you can see it is in excellent condition. I am looking forward to developing my loads and using it on some big game and long shots this coming fall.
I put a Leupold FX 6x36mm LR Duplex scope on top. The back and front open sights are not noticeable at all when viewing through my scope, yet it is still a low mount. I wanted to keep the back and front open sights on the rifle in case I damage my scope on a hunt or have to do a follow up in thick cover on a wounded animal. That is why I used Weaver mounts and a set of Quad Lock Weaver type rings so I can detach my scope. I have made a 610yd shot on a deer with a fixed 6 power scope so the power is fine for big game out to that distance and have taken game a little less than 15yds from a tree stand with a fixed six with no problem.
