I just lucked into a great deal on a Remington 700BDL in 17rem. It's a really clean early production specimen and after tuning the trigger and decoppering the heck out of it, I mounted a mint Weaver T10 with a 1/8th minute Lee dot reticle. I found an old set of Pacific Durachrome dies and a sack of new brass at the last Palmer gunshow. Sportsmans had plenty of bullets on the shelf, which made me think I like this thing even more. I haven't had it to the range yet, wife just got a new shotgun and a trapshooting addiction that has consumed our weekends, but I think it's going to be fun.
I just don't have much experience with the sub cals, in centerfires anyway, and was curious as to whether anyone else shot the needle guns.
