    What would you like to discuss about it? Tell us a little about it and I'm sure you'll get some comments.

    BTW - You originally posted this in "Classifieds" when it belongs here. I moved it for you.

    OTOH, if you actually wanted to make a sale with your first post, please read the rules. If you can't find them, start a private conversation with me and I'll send you a link.

    It's a newer model 700 ADL, with the factory stock, factory barrel, Cadwell bipod and a high mounted Bushnell scope.

    Ya can buy one NIB from Cabelas via packaged deal for 450 bucks (sans bipod and high mounted scope as they stick w/ 40mm scopes on their combos, decreasing the HOB)

    It won't make 400 yards shooting MOA even with custom reloads and is best used for the "receiver" only, which is the best part on it. The stock is Remington mickey mouse junk too flimsy for practical use, the barrel as noted is Remington and not known for it's accuracy using anything other than Remington bullets and even then in it's current state it qualifies only as a decent hunting rifle (with the rounds it prefers).

    Best use for this rifle is as noted the receiver to be use in a custom built rifle.

    I used a similar older 700 ADL '06 bought as a complete rifle for $300 at a gunshow a decade ago to build a custom Krieger barreled long range rifle that'll shoot 1/2 MOA out to 1200 yards.

    ps - Ben was very polite and it appears after his comment ya did not even take the time to go back and read the rules atop the forum ya originally posted this in.........., my apologies for the honest assessment of your rifle, but I am very familiar with this particular firearm and what it is capable of when used - both box stock and fully customized. Spend around 2.5K on it, with a proper gunsmith and you'll have a rifle you will never want to sell that will drive tacks at any range using custom 175 grn SMK loads, but as it sets above it's simply a rifle capable of downing any critter in North America using factory Remington loads it likes at 200 yards by an above average shooter provided he ain't using the bipod on that flimsy stock.

    "Discuss" is Facebook code for sell without actually saying it.

    This member wants to sell his gun but apparently doesn't comprehend the rules.

    Feel free to delete this as it is an obvious attempt to skirt said rules.

    Still at 2 posts.

    I don't think the OP really wants to discuss anything. Much less read and follow the rules.

    Rules? There are no rules for the entitled millenials. Everybody gets a trophy. It's always someone else's fault. And life is unfair so they are entitled to get things for free, at the expense of others who have more than they should.

    Sorta what I thought would happen. I can only hope that the required effort to game the system around here left a bad taste in his mouth and he won't bother to come back.
