Another darn gun I gotta get ammo for!!!!

Just kidding, I got my new/first quality bolt action tonight. Got a really good deal on it. Bought it from my brother, but the funny part is that even though it's his I'm the only one that's ever shot it (just 2 boxes). So theoretically I got a new rifle for a used price.

Remington 798 w/ Mauser Action 30-06

That is a great looking rifle....................and being an 06, you will have 100's of new and old bullets to test thew it from
the 100gr plinker to the new , all copper bullets.

With luck it will have a 1-10 twist so you can shoot most bullets and get great groups.

Happy shooting in the many years to follow.

It grouped about 1 - 1 1/2 inches with crappy Winny silver box junk ammo. I figure the groups are going to blow my mind once it starts getting worn in and I use something like Hornady Match grades.

Try the blue box Federals - while not a 30-06, I was shooting sub 1 inch at 200 yards with my .243. That's better then the Hornady ammo I had - it shot about 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 inches at 200. This was all out of a brand spanking new Rem 700 I bought at Wal mart. I put about 200 rounds thru the gun and then traded it. :lol3:
What duck?

Hard to beat a mauser action, especially one chambered for 30-06. Great action, great round. Gun will last you a lifetime.
It's a fact that 70 percent of the people who purchase heavier tackle do so with the categorical I just lost a huge snook! Einstein Hairdo.The other 30 percent have either Tarpon Fever or are sporting a hand cramped into a claw from a deepwater grouper.

I believe that it the blind mag release button, not safety.
