    Remington 700 BDL .270

    I traded for this Remington 700 BDL in .270 Winchester, got it from my youngest brother. Made back in the 90's, at least that's when he bought it new, barely any wear at all. I took off the picatinny mount he had on it and mounted a nice Redfield Jr. one piece mount, now the scope is close to the receiver, which I like much better. Plus it has a more classic look. Will start load development soon.

    After he handed the rifle to me, he brought out another box, full of .243 brass, bullets and dies, yep, I'm planning on buying a .243 too, why not?!

    Re: Remington 700 BDL .270

    I bought mine new at Best Products back in 1987 ,hunted for years with it. Been in the back of safe for years. Mine would shoot groups that could be covered with a dime at 100 yards . .270 is hard to beat .Nice rifles . I paid $349 or $379 can't remember

    I had one I traded for and sold... Late Brother was a Remington man!

    Wish I would have kept that .270!

    The Remington's are nice, I actually just bought another Rem 700 ADL 30-06, made in 1962, first year of manufacture. I'm looking forward to picking her up, she might be the basis of a custom build. I'm thinking a heavy Kreiger for a barrel, Triggertech trigger, H-S Precision stock.

    Re: Remington 700 BDL .270

    That ADL would be a wonderful custom rifle. BDL 's were a little on the fancy side.

    Dad had the 742 BDL , 552 Speedmaster which is also fancy BDL style ,I ha've the 700 BDL .

    Re: Remington 700 BDL .270

    I've only owned one 700 and only for a short time. It was a newer and cheaper model synthetic parkerized in 243. Nothing like that beauty you have.
    Thought I was on to something.... Climbed up in a big oak tree and sat on a big branch thinking the small caliber and light profile would be the ultimate tree gun. I was right for the most part, but the impact on the deer in that caliber was very disappointing.
    There were some problems with early 700's. I'm doubtful this is news to anyone here ...but I'll say it anyway for the sake of conversation. "Remington under fire" if I recall correctly was a "60 minutes" interview. A seriously good watch if you have some spare time to kill. Very sad too. A mother shot her own son out west, maybe Colorado or Montana. Her boy was behind some type of camper when she unloaded her rifle after a family hunt. The early rifle fired by wiggling the bolt, which she did while unloading the rifle.

    Re: Remington 700 BDL .270

    There's a recall for Rem 700's from 2006-2014. Might be more recalls, not sure about that. Supposedly, the trigger is faulty. I've owned more than a few 700's over the years, never a problem. The Remington's I have now, including the newest .270, which was made in the 90's, all have aftermarket triggers. The old 1962 model 700, will have a new Triggertech trigger installed soon.

    Re: Remington 700 BDL .270

    Don't really know what year model the one I has was but it was the BDL fancy one... Not my type so I sold it... It did shoot good though!

    My late brother had several of them and did have an accidental discharge in my present that was probably trigger related.

    Zero'd the .270, then shot this group, looks promising. 9/16th inches. Still have to adjust the scope a bit.
