First rifle I ever bought was a Marlin 336 in 30/30. Brought down quite a few deer over the years with it. Am trying the Model 7400's older cousin this year, a Remington Model 740 in .244 caliber. No, that's not a typical graphical error there. That's right, I said .244. It just never caught on like the .243 did years ago. Now the round is sold as 6mm Remington. It's hotter than a .243 leaving the barrel at a screaming 3100 fps.

The 740 is as old as I am. My grandfather bought it the year I was born. Can't wait to see how well it works on a deer!

yeah thats right the one with the plastic trigger.
I read the post where you wrote how you got it. This response is from your father-in-law, just appreciate the thought behind the gift. That's what counts the most. <grin> Couldn't resist getting in a dig for my daughter.

yeah rdrader i cant blame my wife for buying me a gun with a plastic trigger. my uncle had the same gun and i always noticed how accurate he was with it. so she told me the price range for my christmas present so i picked that gun. i never had noticed before about the trigger. i still like the gun and use it during gun season. its very accurate. it is just remingtons cheapest gun they made. i hear this year they came out with model 770 which is another cheap gun from remington. i read a write up on it (the 770) in a magazine and the author said though the gun may be cheap and the trigger assembly not to his liking he still got accurate groups out of it.
