First Remington I've Bought

Got it for my daughter for deer season this year. Should work out pretty well.

I bought it on GB. Had a little trouble with the private seller and finally tracked down a phone number--she's 85 years old and lives in Yakima. And then the FFL's didn't talk for 2 weeks. Then the persistent heavy snow over Snoqualmie Pass delayed UPS 3-4 days.

But it got here. Kid was surprised and pleased as punch.

I got her a 2-7x Redfield Revolution, but she'd rather shoot the iron sights. I may end up mounting a peep on it if she persists.

Remington 722 in .257 Roberts! That is a wonderful rifle!

The stock is really designed for iron sights and with the drop on the comb can make recoil seem a bit worse so take it easy on your daughter. Also the 722 action is short and bullets heavier than 100 grains are going to sit down in the powder space, but, since the Roberts throat is short, you can't seat them out anyway. Still a very nice rifle with a well earned reputation for accuracy. I'm jealous.
