How is the Remington not defined as a ML? I read that thread and I dont see Remington being called out, I read the regs and don't see the Remington being excluded. So what gives? Have I missed something and Remington is now producing a smokeless safe muzzleloader?

To answer your question, I have a Rem 700 ML that is my loaner-back up. For me I'm shootin 100gr of loose pyrodex, a 240gr .451 Nosler partition bullet and a MMP high pressure sabot, for ignition the standard #11 nipple was replaced with a musket cap nipple. Optics originaly was a Bushnell Banner 3x9x40 which worked well but was replaced with a BSA illuminated reticle scope. The BSA has given up the ghost and is now in need of replacement.

Depends on how much you want to spend, but "for the money" I have found that a Bushnell Banner scope is pretty hard to beat for a lower end priced scope.
Me and man have 3 of them.

I bought a shooters edge scope at Paducha Shooters Supply before christmas for it. They said it is the same scope as the banner. That bushnell makes them.

Haven't seen that one.
The dudes at PSS are normally straight up type people though.

Scope isn't as important on a ML as a rifle...

But what is important on the Rem 700, is that you occasionally need to disassemble the bolt and clean the firing pin assembly or it will foul up and either freeze on you in the worst possible time or will drop the firing pin with insufficient force to activate the primer, thus causing a misfire.

Trust me, I know... I almost lost a 125" buck 5 years ago due to this!

The guy asked a simple question. Try 90gr of 777 with the hornady great plains 385 gr lead hollow point.
I like the simmons aetec on my remy.
Got to take it off to put it on the savage ml this year.
Good luck.

Good luck. I still like my old flint-lock and side caplock rifles. I have tried some of those pellets though.

Here's mine from the MZ opener. He showed up promptly at 10:00am.


Savage MZ strikes again

This week I saw a spike, two sixes, a seven and two eights. They seemed to be in cruise mode, but the smaller bucks were more aggressive in checking does than the older bucks. I sure hope the seniors will hold off for the gun opener.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I dunno, heavy. No scales at the checking station or the meat processors either. We're talking Morgan county here. He was at least 150 by three different expert weight guessers.
