“Remington 783” 30-06
October 3rd I decided to take this new Rifle to our local range, Which I got for a bargain price of $289 at the local Sportsman Warehouse… A Remington 30-06 with a scope. 3-9×42… it is a no name scope but at this price range I don’t have too much to complain. Where do you actually get a Remington 783 with a scope for $289…?Beautiful Morning at our Local Range, Clark County Shooting Range.
Temperature was reading 82 degrees. Winds at 5 miles an hour @ 3/4 Value coming from left. Cant ask for a better weather to zero a scope and fire first rounds out of a perfectly great rifle. Ammo I used, unfortunately, was a Military surplus that I bought over at BulkAmmo.com. Haven’t used this ammo before at all and I had no idea how it performed… For the price it was advertised, I just couldn’t pass it up. it was advertised as Springfield Ammo by Pakistani Mil Surplus – 150gr FMJ.
First shot: down bottom…. Second shot: 3 inches over 3/4 to the left
After the first two shots I went 4 shots to each outside 4 inch circles. couldn’t actually believe that I was almost under MAO; with a military surplus ammo, cold bore and unknown scope at 9 power at a 100 yards. After firing the first group the second grouping was a pleasure to see…One thing I have to add is that a few of the Cartridges wouldn’t even chamber. I guess that’s what you get for a cheap ammo.
A great functional, accurate and reliable rifle from Remington. I believe the trigger pull is about 3.5 lbs. from the factory but it is adjustable. Free float barrel, a standard but very comfortable recoil pad which I slipped a cartridge holder looks and feels great. Standard detachable box magazine that is flush and I also added a bipod just to make it more adjustable.
A Remington 783 for under $300…??? I’ll take it any day.
