Neat rifle!

I had a patient's wife give me his well-worn Rem 700 in 6mm Remington earlier this year. He died a couple of years ago after a bout with Parkinsons, but regaled me for years with his stories of using that rifle for antelope and mule deer in Wyoming.

Since then I've had the barreled action reblued, and the stock refinished. I've spent a lot of time trying to find "the" load for it without much success. However, it shoots 95gr Nospler Partitions very well (not my ammo) so I've at least got something to use.

In a few weeks I'll be taking it to WY and shooting an antelope with it in honor of its previous owner.

Good luck with that beautiful rifle!

Very cool story about getting that 6mm Remington Doc Vette.

I don't know what it is but when I buy a rifle or shotgun from an individual, I always ask about what history they can give me on it.

Knowing the history of uses gives them more character or something, not sure, but I do know that the information stays with me for years go come and often comes to mind while I'm out hunting with it.

Love to have a standard weight one day but, this one is going to be my "go to" for some time.
God Bless

So my dad calls me, says he just bought a long bed truckload of assorted gun parts, reloading supplies, old ammo, contender barrels, mounts, stocks, molds, you name it 70 year collection off an estate.

Well we get to digging through it, find a 788 6mm barreled action, no bolt. Then find the bolt, find the stock in 90% condition. Just put it all together, he hasn’t decided to sell it or keep it, but it sure seems like a great round!

I told Dad I know for a fact he bought too much junk. He said why? I said because if you bought enough that you don’t even know there’s a rifle in it, you bought too much hahaha.
