Will it be a waste of time this weekend to try and sight a scope on a Remington 742 (.308 Win) at 100 yards with Silver Bear?

(My dad bought the ammo, not me.)

If your scope has not yet been sighted in at all, though, using Silver Bear will reduce the amount of time and ammo the next trip takes.

The scope is right out of the box, so that's good to know.

I have another question. My 870 Express Super Mag won't feed rounds properly. What happens is when I try to chamber 3" slugs, the bolt won't go all the way home. The barrel is seated properly, but I'm thinking the chamber is just really dirty. Anything else I should look at when I strip it down to clean it?

You do have an 870 with a 3" chamber, right?

That is correct.

If you've run 2 3/4" shells in it for a long time and been somewhat lax about cleaning the chamber, I'd figure there could well be some buildup in that last 1/4" that just needs to be cleaned out. That's not meant as any kind of criticism, either, I run 2 3/4" shells in my Mossberg 500A and only ever cleaned the thing once.

This is a newer rifled barrel with the cantilever scope mount I bought last fall for deer season. It's only been fed 3" slugs but you're right, it probably is dirty as hell. :v:
