I think you did quite well with that purchase. Congrats! Can we expect a range report in the near future?

Yes it will be OK on the 4X scope for that distance. Better would be 3 to 9. Leave it on the lower powers, and go upward if you need it. Unless you are a scope user, the higher magnification end, may give you problems finding your target in a lesser field of view. However if you shoot with one eye into the scope and the other along side of it on the target it's pretty easy to over come that.

Are you going to tell me if this is good or bad? You got me curious since it doesn't say either of what you thought it would say.

The Interarms Mark X is a very fine rifle. And congrats! The action is like a Mauser action. The Magazine is internal and the has the Drop Plate in front of the trigger guard with a latch. For Gators question it does have a lever on the left rear side of the receiver that hinges out slightly to remove the bolt. We had one just like it on the SWAT team years ago in 308, and it was extremely accurate up to three rounds and then would throw the fourth off a little due to the barrel heating up and getting hot. But the three rounds were an MOA group.
Nice Piece you have there!

Congraduations on the new rifle. 30-06 is one of my favorite calibers. I like to use Hornady SST bullets in mine when ever I want a little more power. Their about $30 bucks a box but will make the bullet fly a little flatter (not completely sure wether it was me or the bullet but it hit targets about 2-3 inches higher than regular winchester bullets) and will make it hit harder. Just a suggestion.

PS. Despite what the box of hornady sst says, It does increase recoil, I had a sore shoulder that proved it.

Enjoy the rifle

Books, some early Mark X's were sent to England and I think they're marked Whitworth, that's all. The Mark X's are being imported by Remington and someone else right now. Apparently they don't have the fit and finish the older ones have such as ours do.

The Remington 798 is the same action with different bottom metal. Here's some info from Chuck Hawk's: Remington Model 798 and 799 Rifles (Rem. 798, Rem. 799)

BTW, do you have a manual? If not: Interarms Mark X Bolt Action Rifle

Thanks for the manual. The rifle did not come with one.

Since I was able to get the bolt out and take a real good look at the bore and chambering, I'm not entirely sure that the rifle has ever been fired. There is absolutely no residue anywhere on the gun and there is not even any scuff/wear marks on the chamber or the face of the bolt.
