New From Remington

In 2016, Remington will have been providing quality firearms to the public for 200 years. And while the company still produces some of the most popular firearms on the market, it is not resting on its success with the 700, 1100 and 870.

In the next few months, Remington, along with other segments of the Freedom Group of Companies, will be introducing a few new products, as well as new variations of previous models. One of the more interesting bits of news coming from Big Green is that the company is bringing out the Remington 2020, a digital optic system that is paired with hand-selected rifles and sighted at the factory. The system features a 3-21 power scope, along with a laser rangefinder, video camera, ballistic calculator, WiFi server, still camera, compass and barometer. The system is a collaboration between Remington and TrackingPoint, combining digital optics with target tracking technology. This system can record shots, both video and photos, which can then be shared with others via the server.

Available in three versions-700 SPS Tactical in .308 Win., 700 Long Range in .30-06 Sprg. and a Bushmaster Varmiter in .223 Rem., the Remington 2020 provides long-range shooting capabilities, and can track targets moving up to 10 m.p.h. The system comes with 300 rounds of ammunition, with which it is specifically paired for optimal accuracy, though there will probably be updates that will allow customization to other types of ammunition, including handloads. The only drawback is the more than $5,000 price tag.

Other offerings include the 700 Tactical Chassis in .308 Win., .300 Win. and .338 Lapua Mag., and a 700 VTR that comes with a bipod, scope and tactical bolt knob for only an additional $25, or a stainless version for an extra $72.

In the shotgun markets, Remington is coming out with few new versions of the Versa Max-the Wood Tech, the Waterfowl Pro and the Left Hand, as well as one designed for 3-gun competition.

Finally, Remington is entering the airgun market with a rifle called the Express, which will be in stores for the Holiday shopping season.

Rifleman Q&A: Lubricated With Wax?

I have an old box of Winchester-Western Super X .38 Colt hollow-point ammo. On the side of the box is “Lubaloy coated Bullet special dry wax lubricant.”  It seems to me that most modern ammunition is not coated. Why is it (or was it) necessary to put some form of wax on ammunition?
