As has been said, standard velocity should be fine.

Mine is in much worse shape, but it was my dad's, and his dad's before him.

Like blackwolfe, it was the first rifle I ever shot.

He got it perfect on the 511, but I'm wondering if he uses a bubble level when putting it in the jig. Those things are not the most accurate for this application.

And what if the rifle was level,...

John -

He knocked about a third off the normal price (Good Buddy Discount), so even with the cost of the adjustable rings I'm still below the normal price.

Houston, we have a problem.

Progress report.

I mounted the 6x on the 514, but when I went to bore-sight it I ran out of lateral adjustment. Long story short, the mounts are exactly behind each other, but they're not...

A friend of mine, now deceased, knew Mr. Unertl well.

In a discussion we had one day, he pronounced the name the same as has been discussed:

Long U - nurtle rhymes with turtle.

I looked into the tip off bases, but none of those indicate they fit the old Remingtons. Plus, it appears they all would span over the opening in the receiver.

So, last night I finally made my...

Well, piffle!

I took both the 511 and the 514 out shooting today. Probably the first time the 511 has been shot in over 40 years. I was only shooting 25 yards. Even wearing reading glasses over my regular...

And also,

I also have a 514, also with iron sights, which I also have difficulty seeing. So, quoting myself above, does anyone know why the 514 can use a pair of #16s if already D&T, but #12s if not?

Yeah, I don't anticipate using the safety much on a single-shot, tin-can shooter. I try to keep the safety between my ears working all the time instead.
