Remington M700 LSS Ultimate Muzzleloader

Moreover, Remington says on its website that the muzzleloader “consistently shoots groups rivaling centerfire rifles.”

Welcome to the era of the 300-yard muzzleloader—at least, this is what Remington has claimed with the introduction of its new blackpowder rifle.

As John Travolta’s Vincent Vega said in Pulp Fiction: “That’s a bold statement.”

Bold indeed. How does Remington justify it?

Because the rifle is built on the strong M700 action, a shooter is safely able to use 200 grains of powder to propel the bullet, giving the Ultimate Muzzleloader a velocity advantage over most blackpowder rifles, which max out with 150-grain charges.

Getting more specific, Remington says that with four 50-grain pellets of Hodgdon Triple Seven powder behind a 250-grain Remington AccuTip sabot, the rifle generates 2,400 fps of muzzle velocity and a trajectory with 23.8 inches of drop at 300 yards using an initial zero of 1 ½ inches at 100 yards.
