Rem 581-582 vs 580



Log in to see fewer ads
I have a Remington 580 ,i've had only a few days but this thing shoots really good so far have only shot CCI SV in it. But my ques is does the 581 and the 582 shoot as good as the 580? I would really like to get either one of them if they shoot as good,i don't see why they would not.

Same barrel/action. The 582 has the tube feed that is attached to the barrel that could change harmonics and possibly effect the bedding. But in reality they probably all will shoot about the same. They're not target guns. Just find some ammo they like.

If you like your 580, you will like the 581 and 582. If you can get 5hem reasonably priced they are well worth it.

I have a 581-s that shoots fantastic,about .5 in at 55 yds with Federal bulk HV HP.I did a little trigger stoning to bring the pull down to about 3lb from over 5.Also had another 581 that shot .75 at 55yds I sold to a friend.I have read that the 581-s had a tighter chamber and I can vouch for that as mine will sometimes not eject unfired rounds.Great guns IMO.

Sorry doodle but I don't think failure to eject is a sign of a tight chamber. More likely it is a dirty chamber, a burr, or a worn extractor. A tight chamber would be felt when chambering a fresh round which would take more force than normal to seat.

Also I doubt there is any documentation that a 581-s chamber is any different than any other 580 series rifles.

I really didn't shoot any groups at those distances. I shoot with a PFI RRE001 3-12 scope which has stadia lines, Left side for Standard Velocity and Right side for High Velocity. I zeroed at 50yds, just 4 shots, adjusting between each, and then used the 90yd Stadia line for 100yd, the 140 line for 150 distance, and the 180 mark for the 185yd Rams. You just have to remember to change the AO parallax between ranges. DON'T ASK ME how I know! I am digging out a Label Maker to put a reminder on the eye bell!
Temperature here was in a very humid high 80s, and I had other rifles I was "exercising".

Today's SK Long Range use......

We had our final .22lr Long Range silhouette shoot this morning, with me shooting the 581 with the SK Long Range Match ammo I t was 25 degrees cooler, and overcast with a threat of rain. With the temp change, my sighters showed to hold on the Standard Velocity scale right on at 50 for Chicks, hold the 80 for 100yd Pigs, 130 for the 150 yd Turkeys, and hold the 180 line on the bottom of the Ram's belly for the 185 yd shots. Course of fire is 10 rounds per distance with sighters allowed, but once you go for record, it's either Hit or Miss. Then, you skip two distances, and shoot 5 more of each with no sighters, so you need to know your scope dope and your cold bore impact at each station. We drew Pigs to start, and I took all 10, and followed with 10 Turkeys and 10 Rams. I finished up with 6 Chicks, and the final Chick spun 90 degrees but didn't fall. That's important! We then skipped two distances, and I shot all 5 Turkey and Rams, and came down to 50 and shot 3 of 5 Chicks. I finished with 5 Pigs and thought I might have won the match! No such luck! One man equaled me for score, but won the match on the Chicken Tiebreaker! He dropped 3 Chicks and 3 Rams, and I dropped 6 Chicks and cleaned the rest. We both totaled 54s, so the #10 Chick that didn't fall got me! Out of the approx. 85-90 shots, I could not discern any that I would call a flyer! The misses were just me not being worth a darn holding close! i just wrote to where I bought this brick asking for more of the same lot of it. Maybe after next week's final Silhouette Shoot at another club, I could switch out to a Benchrest scope to check groups with it.
