117 grain .257 diameter is a good all around choice for reloading. Factory ammo probably ranges from 117 to 120 grs. for that particular weight range of 25-06 ammo. Pointed tip [spitser] and boat-tail base will shoot the flattest...Hornady, Speer, Sierra, Nosler, Remington, Winchester, Barnes, etc. all offer bullets for reloading in .257 caliber. My two favorites are Sierra and Hornady but other makes are well liked also...reloading manuals are an invaluable aid to reload safely and accurately...good luck... I like 75 and 87 grain bullets for varmints and 100, 115, 117, 120 boat tail spire point for deer.
Yes. 700 BDL European
CD in CDL stands for classic deluxe.
Only the 700 VLS is made in 6mm
It's a BDL. I know this because I own one and the replacement stocks are for BDL's...
I paid $575.00 with scope
The designation, ADL or BDL refers to the stock on the 700 model rifles. The 700ADL has a plain walnut stock with a blind box magazine, no floorplate. The Model 700 BDL is a bit fancier as far as the stock goes. This Model has a dropping floorplate and is most often found with a black plastic fore-end tip and grip cap.
one on the Texas hunting forum for $400
If you state the caliber we could then determine the size of the action.
My brother just purchased one brand new. He paid $460 for it I believe. He was lucky to find one new beings they are discontinued in the model 700 BDL.
To determine the exact value of a Remington 700 BDL dm in 6mm, a few different factors would need to be taken into consideration. Some of these factors would be the age and condition of the firearm.
There were 2 version of the Model 700, the ADL and BDL. The ADL-BDL designations were originally acronyms for A Grade Deluxe and B Grade Deluxe. The deluxe term was once tacked on to the end of the model designation. Physically the two rifles are very similar- the ADL has a blind floorplate for the magazine that cannot be opened from the bottom. The BDL floorplate can be opened to permit unloading from the bottom.
6 too 700
yes a BDL rifle will fit a ADL stock but the trigger guard will not but a new trigger guard can be bought for 20 to 50 dollars and brownells.com
