742, Old Reliable

I have had a 742 Carbine since 1970. A lot of them were abused by their owners using surplus ammunition. I only use Remington Core Lok, 150 grain ammunition. I have shot a lot of deer from 40 to over 200 yds. Shot a Moose in 2002. The shot was standing, off hand, 185 yds, I broke its back with one shot. When it comes to getting meat I rely on this gun. Keep it clean, prior to use, I clean off all oil and grease on the action bar.
