so i finally got a chance to read the new catalog for 09, i see they are doing some different things this year. i was pissed to see that the now have an externally adjustable xmark pro trigger, which should be nice, compared to the p.o.s xmark i have. the supercell recoil pad looks like it will be awesome. the new triangular shaped barrels look different i dont know if they will have any real function or not. im very surprised to see that they will continue to chamber m700 cdl rifles in the .257wby, and the 75th anniversary rifle this year is a .257roberts, i find that exciting, and would love to have one, but i will resist that urge. the new .30 remington in the vtr15 looks like a niffty little round as well.

The xmark is not a bad  trigger. if you tune it right it will hold a crisp 3 pounds of pull all day long.

when you cant adjust the sear engagment screw to make it safe, the xmark pro trigger i have is a piece of crap!

i fully expect to here that John Barsness ordered a new m700 in the .257 ned roberts too!

I got rid of my 25-06, but wouldn't mind trying the roberts.

i started hunting with a pre 64 m70 in .257 ned roberts, and while i do have a ton of respect for the cartridge i will admit i think the 25-06 is better. but both will work just fine. i just wish they came with out the fancy floor plate, i dont need to know its a 75th anniv. model. and at the same time i dont wanna dish out $900 for a kimber 84m either just to get a .257. i guess there is always the option of buying a rugerMouth Taped Shut

another thing i forgot to mention and i was some what surprised, but in the same breath i wasnt. there are no rem short mags in there rifles this year, they are chambering 270wsm and 300wsm this year which is what they should have done years ago instead of wasting money on there own version.

i would like to add that im still surprised that they only offer the .280rem in two rifles, neither of which are exactly cheap, the lss and the alaskan Ti. so i guess my next target will have to be an lss .280rem.

I'm personally surprised to see Big Green discontinued the seemingly popular SPS Tactical rifle.

The MSRP on the XCR is MUCH more expensive than the SPS Tactical is/was, but your probably right.

totally, and im not in any way saying that was a wise move either, to be honest with you i wish they had more options in left handed models too, and im not saying that because you are a lefty, 3_tens is too, and i think a lot more people would hunt if they had more out there for the south paws.

if you have the new 09 catalog they show the custom shop stuff, and it intresting if you look in the custom shop tactical rifles  they are chambering a 338 lapua in one of there rifles. what intrested me is that remington must have listened to the feedback people gave about how the xmark pro trigger wasnt real easy to adjust and now they are back to telling people, they can adjust there own trigger again. must be pressure from all these other companies too, i think ruger is about the only one left without an externally adjustable trigger on there bolt guns.

Looks to me like the "triangle" barrel is just a bull barrel with the sides knocked off.  I could see how that might ad stiffness while reducing weight, but I think I'll let them season a bit before I rush out to buy one.

Other than the RSAUM`s being discontinued and adding on the WSM`s, which they should have done a long time ago, there really is not alot of changes going on over at Remy imo.
 
They did add the 257 Bob in a limited edition, but across the board no major changes in `09 to get thrilled about vs `08.

...........Yeah! I agree! Not broken, don`t fix it.
 
But you won`t see Remy with the same savy (balls) as Ruger when it comes to new product innovations or introductions either in cartridges or in new rifles chambered for them.
 
Imo, other than all of their very popular cartridges already on the market and unless they come up with anything new, when it came to their RSAUM`s, that was Remy`s last hurrah in the new cartridge dept.

looked at one they are way cool looking if I build a new gun this will be done to the barrel. I was thinking this before I did the spiral fluting on my encore. kinda half octagon?....as for as added stiffness it will be highly debated just as fluting is?

It looks like the Serbian Zastava shotguns and rifles are history.
The Italian O/U looks to be gone, too.
They are sticking with their proven platforms with some major updates to some like the 870. They have a large selection of calibers as usual and they are really pushing the AR platform. That is no surprise considering Cerburus has DPMS and Bushmaster along with Remington. They really own the AR market, combined.

 What are their shotguns like these days?
Thinking about getting latched onto an 12 ga.11-87 of some sort one of these days.
I had to sell my old 870 years ago and haven't owned a shotgun since. My boys are getting to be big enough to trudge along after upland game and I might get into turkey hunting too.
 Want something decent, but not terribly expensive. Semi-auto for recoil dampening.
Any suggestions if not an 1100 or 11-87?  May look for something used.
 Bennelli's much better than Remingtons? Or something else? Open to just about anything...

The 1100 and 11-87 are solid guns with parts everywhere. My brother shoots an 11-87 SPS and I a Benelli SBE. In many years of waterfowling neither one has ever failed. The Benelli has an aluminum receiver and is lighter than the 11-87. It costs quite a bit more, too.

I'd look for a used Benelli.  I love both of mine.  Lots of guys are upgrading to the SBE II's, so you may be able to find a SBE I for cheap.

  Thanks, Doug!
 That's about what I expected to hear.
  Now- is the 11-87 significantly better (simpler, more rugged, perhaps,?) than the 1100?
