Remington 700 .350 Remington Mag.

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

Looking a bit more serious than the CDL because of the appropriate 2.5X scope and the iron sights, the 700 BDL did not please our shooters nearly as much as the other rifle. Note the absence of a forend tip. This was a very good rifle, though in need of a bit of work on the recoil pad and, perhaps, the bedding and trigger. These fine old rifles are often found on the used market, but not many will look like new, as this one does.

Remington has used this simple yet fully adjustable rear sight for several decades. The screw on the right side permits elevation adjustment, and another one in front of the standard provides windage. We didn't like the U notch. The front sight was a white-faced bead with no protection.
Clean lines, a period scope of proven excellence, and all the power most folks will ever need for North American hunting are the hallmarks of this 700 BDL
Here's the limiting factor that put some of us off the .350 Mag. The magazine length will not permit any extra out-seating of the bullets, so long and heavy bullets cut the powder capacity significantly, and therefore this cannot equal the Whelen in that area. It may not matter to you, but it did to most of our shooters, who are all handloaders.
