Killed my first deer and first antelope with a Rem 700 BDL in .243

Got a nostalgic craving and since I can't afford the muscle cars I drove when young, I put this together...

Got a 22" factory barrel with sights, cerakoted, from a member here. Went out and bought a new " donor", put an old school Walker trigger in it and found a vintage 60s BDL stock....Bedded it, plopped a Burris 3x9 FFII on top and voila!

The bonus is the MoFo shoots better than my first one those many years ago!

You're making me feel nostalgic.
My first center-fire was a 700BDL Varmint Special, a mid-1960's model in 243 cal. Super accurate!

My shooting Pard always wanted one of those in a .222

We absolutely couldnt find one, so I "built" one....he loves it.

Now where do you find a 60's era BDL stock? My dad had a 270 (I know) like that that all the sudden I feel a need to replicate...

Two of the most accurate rifles I've ever owned were a 700 ADL in 243 and a BDL in 30-06. Sold the 243 to my nephew and he took his first deer with it and sold the 30-06 to another nephew and he took his first elk with it the next fall... And I gave them killer deals on them... maybe I should have charged them more? wink
