Hello all, I am a new member to this forum and so far i am very impressed with everyones knowledge. My questions are. I have recently purchased a Remington 597 TVP and I am haveing a hard time finding any reviews or information. Im looking to see if anyone has had luck with a particular load or had any problems with the rifle itself as it is new for 2008 in this style. I start shooting benchrest with it in May. Ive had this rifle for about 6 mo. and have yet to shoot it. I have Nikon 3 x 9 mounted. Should I take any special care breaking in the barrel. I have heard many mixed reviewsas far as this procedure goes. I would like to shoot Federal load 711B....if i can find any...which leads to my next question.(we can only shoot a load that is under $5.00 per 50 rounds.) Does anyone know where i can get Federal 711B without being on backorder?? I prefer the older stuff in the White and Blue box. Thats getting very hard to find. I will settle for any of the new stuff if anyone have some to spare. Thanks for taking your time to read my post and answer any one of my questions. Keep it up!
