If that is the semi-auto Remington, then yes I used to have one in .270 but sent it back to Remington to have the 30-06 carbine barrel installed at the custom shop.

This was a great little rifle for deer in the deep Bama woods. I kept several freezers full when I was younger.

But I sold it to a fellow cop to buy some golf clubs of all things. I think I let it go for 300. And I ain't worth a darn at golf. Everytime I shank a shot, I wish that I had the Remington back.

Check around. You can probably find a good used one a little cheaper.

Thanks IWT, how does it function? Did it ever jam on you? Right now it is a toss up between that and a BAR. Also was accuracy good to 200 yards? Esox357

Remmy 7400

I have one in .243 and love it. It was my first hunting rifle and I will probably never give it up. It's taken many deer always functions well. I hit a doe a few years back broadside and she came straight towards my stand. It cycled so smoothly I never even noticed the second instinctive shot I put just under her neck that put her down. Mags are plentiful and cheap. Very sturdy and well built and you can find some beautiful wood on the older ones. Great rifle.

I have had both. Traded the Remmy and kept the BAR. Go with the BAR. Can't get a much better Semiauto for hunting IMHO. Or any that are much better looking than this one. BAR Premium

I've got a 7400 30-06 carbine. Hunted with it some. It is basically my back-up gun. Goes on every big game hunt, just in case. Accurate and reliable. The BARs are a step up, but for the money, you'd be better of with one of the new Benelli semi-auto rifles. VERY nice handling and shooting semi. The Rems are very solid rifles.

Thanks again for the input, man A.F. Lineman that is one sweet looking BAR. I ended up buying an ADL bolt in 06, I wasn't able to check here on the forum in time, so I didn't want to buy something that jammed. Again I appreciate everyones input and may think about buying one down the line. Esox357

Quite a difference in price!!! $1500 to $2000 msrp for the bar!!!!

$624.00 MSRP for the 7400!!!

http://www.remington.com/firearms/centerfire/7400wd.htm

Get the 7400 and spend the money you save (VS. the BAR) on a nice scope! V A L U E !!!!

Mine had no reliability problems with either the .270 barrel or the shortened 06 tube. I always cleaned and cared for my firearms and it probably on received about 20 rounds between cleanings; hardly a torture test.

Mine was accurate out to 200 yards. I had it topped with a cheap Bushnell scope and it would hold decent groups at 100 and 200. Nothing like my 700 P but accurate enough for the brush hunting that I did with it. Most of my actual hunting shots were close range and almost all were head shots at does during doe days. I never needed the second, third or fourth shot. Like I said, I kept several freezers full in my farm community (gave alot of meat away to the seniors who lived around me who were on fixed incomes).

I fattened several of them up as they were spending more cash on medicine and living off field peas that they grew during the warmer months.

I miss that community and all of that deep south hunting land that was at my disposal. Literally hundreds of acres that I didn't have to share with anyone.:(
