A friend was looking to sell his rifle (700 DM 30.06) as he doesn't hunt anymore. I've never been a Remington guy but he'd put some money into it the action, trigger, fluting, and a brake. The scope was junk so I yarded that off and put a spare Leupy on it. Hopefully it's a good shooter, but for $450 (with 200rds of range ammo) I don't think I'll get hurt if I have to send it. My son is ready to put it to use caribou hunting this fall.

Ptarmigan: That Rifle looks almost as good as that son!
Good for you and for your son to.
The tried and true 30/06 cartridge is simply wonderful in so many ways.
Best of luck to the young Hunter when he gets after the Caribou.

LOL! His hair all of a sudden got curly this year, plus he just took off his hat. He's overdue for a cut as we just got back from a 2 week vacation. He's begging for the barber! Haha!

He'll be able to hand that rifle down to his child one day.

Good for you and your son on picking the 30-06. Was so afraid you were going to say Creedmore.
Happy hunting !

Well 1 thing though I'd sure not waste anytime finding
an extra mag. Allways should have a backup mag for dm guns.
