Is this a decent deal?

Guns Like firearms themselves, there's a wide variety of opinions on what's the best gun.

Is this a decent deal?

Bugs did you kiss him? lol you certainly got a deal on that one, good goin. As for the "best" load it likes, the 180s are fine for hunting but if you just want to see what the gun is capable of try some SST Light Mags or 165 Sierra Boat Tails from Federal Premium, I have yet to see the 06 that wouldn't shoot those two loads under 1".

Good luck and enjoy,

And the R3 pad is GREAT! I have bought about 7-8 of them (R3s for the Remsand Sims for non Rems) for various guns of mine and love them.

No such thing....you can never have to many guns!

Finally got to shoot the 700 BDL this week-end. Picked up a box of 150 Rem. Core-Lokt last week from Wally World, with as much as everyone makes about recoil I was hesitant to start out with the 180 Hornady Light Mags. Up to now the largest centerfire I've shot is a .223 Ruger Ranch rifle, but I bird hunt with a 870 12 gauge and have hunted deer with slugs... and I have a TC Omega I hunt deer with, so I do have a frame of reference when it comes to recoil. Well, the ott-6 is definitely a boomer, with some recoil, but nothing I haven't felt before and I'd judge it less than a 3" 12 gauge slug out of an 870. I shot it the first time standing free hand, just to get a feel for it. I think it will do the job if I do my part.
