IMHO, Remington still makes a damn fine gun. I have a 2006 Remington Model 700 ADL chambered in 30-06. It has the traditional blued steel, and a laminate stock that is drop dead gorgeous. I love that gun. It shoots great, and is very well made.

Yep, I recently noticed the 870 Express has begun to take the Wingmaster's place. The Wingmaster is almost as expensive as the Nova or the BPS. The Express is the 870 that I see more nowadays and it is not very expensive.

Remington was always pretty smart in their marketing. by having their most popular platforms in several different grades and versions to be able to sell to many different price affordability levels. the Express line is just the most economy version of the M870 line-up. works just like the really nice blued and walnut versions, just not as pretty. makes perfect sense to me.

I have no problem with Remington.. I have a "modern" 870, and Im probably the only person in the world that actually prefers the Rem "golden turds" .22's (as everybody else refers to them..) But there what shoot the best out of my Winchester 63, and Weatherby MK. XXII (Im not buying crazy expensive "match" .22's)

Those golden bullet .22s shoot very well in my Anschutz 1416D, Ruger 10-22, and my Browning Challenger.

I should start trying Remington/UMC ammo. I got away from shooting Remington ammo when I was shooting skeet. No other shotgun case loads as well as a Winchester AA. Remington cases are durable but they are a real PITA to resize. I was shooting around 800 rounds a month. When I need to reload that much ammo I only use the hard to resize empties as needed.

Right now Federal, Aquilia, Fiocchi all make great ammo and they all are cheaper than Remington. Fiocchi makes a SJSP that creates as much energy for the 357 (755 foot Lbs) as many premium loads. I can find the Fiocchi for under $25 for 50 rounds.
