I have a .243 win as well. It shoot OK...





Though, it doesn't look like a Predator model any more.

I had one in 22-250 after several different reloads and factory rounds sent it back to remi after they had for a month sent it back same deal would not group. They sent a target back with it that had a 3/4 inch 3 shot group that they said had been shot at 100 yards with remi 55 gr psp. i went and bought a box put my scope back on and shot it at 50 yards with a 16" key holed group. I traded it in on a savage model 10 predator best trade i ever made.
The Model 7 predator has a 1-14 twist. I have a friend that has one exactly like the one i got rid of and his shoots everything from 45s to 69s at 1" or better.

I have one in 223. One of the most accurate rifles I've ever owned.

Pahntr760,

That's a nice looking rifle. You caught my interest with the stock. Which stock is that?

Nice photos, GC.

Thanks for the complements. Someday, it will be CeraKoted, not just rattle can. I was thinking a matte black with tan in the flutes??

As for the stock, it is a Alaskan II Model Seven BDL Model . I feel it is a great stock. Very comfortable to shoot and I like it quite well.

The top group is 58 VMax. Pushed with IMR-4064. I'm shooting the cheaper, but same, 58 ZMax bullets now. $75/500 at sportsmans!!

The botom 2 are 87 Gr VMax.

Truth is, it has digested anything I feed it. I use the 100 gr ProHunter for deer (just not in THIS 243, yet...)

I like the CDL version of the M7 (http://www.remington.com/products/firearms/centerfire/model-seven/model-seven-cdl.aspx
but yours is a close second Shane.

Unfortunately, Remmy's discontinued most of the CDL's, but they do still make the 308 and it's derivatives.

I'm very happy with the way I turned out. Maybe, one day, I will have time off to take it to the field for a proper picture!

The barrel looked blued or parkerized under the dip. Min has 3 good coats of black flat and 3 coats of matte clear coat.
