    I have a Remington .50 caliber Model 700 ML with a Leopold (sp.) 1 X 4 scope. that I am currently shoot 100 grains of Triple Seven and 245 Grain Powerbelt Bullets.

    I have run almost 50 rounds thru it today at a range with a bench. My grouping is all over the place. At 50 yards I will put two or three inside a 3" circle and the have a couple fly out at 12" high left or 6" high right. I was cleaning the gun after every 5 shots but it doesn’t seem to make a difference.

    I don’t trust this thing shooting at an animal past 40 yards. Before I cut it in half and go buy a higher quality gun, does anybody have the exact gun and if so, what loads are you using to keep them flying accurately. I threw away $60.00 worth of ammo today and I’m no closer than when I started.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    did anyone else shoot it with the same results?
    did you try another load? maybe it does't like powerbelts!
    are the first two or three in the 3" the first three shots and the last two flyers?

    could be, but three shots in 3" and two flyers consistently leads me to think it's something else. at least if it's the scope leupold has a great warranty...
    but lets wait and see what he replies...

    My dad has a Remington 700 ML, we shoot 90 grains of GOEX, with a .50 black Knight sabot sleeve and .45 245 grain (I believe) Hornady XTP copper jacketed hollowpoint. Nearly same hole accuracy at 50 yards off a bench. Haven't shot it at 100 many times, but it's always been within a 2-4" circle at 100 those times I have.

    What kind of rings and base you have?

    Check the scope mounts, also make sure the action & barrel is set properly in the stock.

    This was a brand new gun last year, never fired.

    did anyone else shoot it with the same results?
    Same results




    did you try another load? maybe it does't like powerbelts!
    Thats all I had, thats why I'm asking for what may work in this thing. I'm hoping someone else had the same trouble and found a solution.


    are the first two or three in the 3" the first three shots and the last two flyers?
    It didn't seem to matter, every now and then I get a "flyer".


    scope issue? Maybe?
    Not the scope. I pulled my 1 X4 off of my shotgun and had the same results.


    Pull the breech plug and give it a good cleaning???
    After every 5 shots but it didn't seem to matter

    I think i remember reading somewhere that Remington 700 ML's are very finicky with what they like to shoot. I think i read that the person who was having problems had to call remington to find out what their suggestion was for the right load for the gun. I haven't heard many good things about the remington muzzleloaders either though. Sorry about that

    Powerbelts were all over the place w/ mine.
    Mine shot 1" groups at 100 yards w/ 100 gr loose Pyrodex Select a Rem 289 gr copper solid sabot.

    Awesome gun w/ the right load.The reason I got rid of the gun was it was tough to clean and the limited availablity of the Rem loads.

    With the right load it was an awesome setup and I killed a number of deer w/ it
