Remington 740 woodsmaster help please.
First off thanks for all of the good information I have received here on the hunting side. You all helped me out a lot with some .243 information and advice for my dad.
Now for me. I fell into magnum craze a while back and have been shooting a 300 WM. From my hunting experiences I have no reason to shoot this gun. It only hurts more with age. I have an old Remington 30-06, 740 woodsmaster, that I am going to use for deer from here on out. I know a guy could get a better gun but I got this gun from my grandpa a long time ago and want to use it.
I am not into reloading yet and probably will never have the time to do it. So my question is what would be the best over the counter ammo to shoot? And what would be the best size bullet to shoot for deer?
I have a friend that uses some kind of supped up extra fast kind with a 200gr bullet. I was thinking something between 160 and 180gr would be good.
I have been told that these guns will jam so if anyone has any experience with the Remington woodsmaster 740, I would like to here it, both good and bad.
Thanks for the help
it's very cold here
