Remington 7400

Hey all: I am considering a Remington 7400 in .280 Remington. Already have the loading dies and stuff for the 280, so I'm kinda set on the .280. If anyone has any experience with the 7400, I'd love to hear some input. I'm specifically looking at the synthetic one. (only one I could find in 280) How are they for accuracy/reliability/maintenance? I'm planning on using this for my field gun...shots of up to 250 yards. Are they accurate/reliable enough for that? (presuming I do my job as the shooter...)
Thanks!

7400 jamming piece of junk

Hello i hunted for years with a 742 woods master in 3006.when i finally wore it out i purchased a 7400 3006 .It jammed 12 times out of the first box of 20 bullets that was in october i sent it back to remington .they kept it for 5 months!!!(ALL THE WAY THOUGH HUNTING SEASON)when i got it back it shot the first box fine and then started jamming again. On top of that remington would not replace the rifle.i sold it for 150.00 bucks and got me a browning bar.I hope this helps but please dont buy that remington.I can say that the 280 is a fine deer bullet my son shoots one.it has plenty of power.

Thanks for the input. Figured I'll just stay with my Ruger bolt for now.
