A Remington 700 is a good rifle that shoots well. Personally, I like to upgrade the trigger to a Timney. I shoot Remington Core Lokt

Yup, agree with colt. Put a Timney in it and go shoot a few different rounds. Mine likes 180 accubonds that Chad loaded for me.

I have 2 Rem. 700's left, both in .30-06. One is my daughter's (it was my first centerfire rifle, she killed her first deer with it and has claimed it as her's), the other i inherited from my dad. I have Timney triggers in both (it's a very easy swap). Both rifles are pretty darned accurate, they both will shoot 150 and 180 grain loads interchangeably well.

I've been hunting with one for about 5 years. Remington 700 XCR with a Timney trigger. Really fond of that rifle. Very reliable. Took it to Alaska for a black bear hunt and Montana for mule deer and elk. You'll do fine with it for everything from coyotes to elk.

I have an ADL in .30-06 and put a Timney trigger on it. Outstanding rifle. I only put reloaded ammo through it.

How does the timney trigger help? And is there a reason most use reloaded ammo?

Some Remington 700s have a safety recall because the gun can discharge if the safety is clicked off. The Timney fixes that. Plus, a Timney is just a helluva nice trigger.

I would say most use factory ammo, just some folks like to reload.

Oh I see now... Can anyone recommend a good place to take it to have that switched?

I have one though I haven't gotten to use it much mainly for reasons not related to the rifle. I liked it while sighting it in though I'll probably change the trigger on it and if magpul ever comes out with a stock for a long action I'll put that on it.
