Press Release

Remington® Introduces Model 700TM Ultimate Muzzleloader®

Setting the New Standard for Ballistic Performance and Reliability

Madison, NC – Remington Arms Company, LLC, (“Remington”) is pleased to announce the Model 700 Ultimate Muzzleloader – the most technologically advanced in-line muzzleloader on market today.

The Ultimate Muzzleloader sets a new performance threshold with the use of a closed breech system that provides a cleaner and hotter ignition. The AMP (Accelerated Muzzleloader Performance) ignition system uses a uniquely-sized brass case with a Remington 9 ½ large magnum rifle primer that is push fed into the breech plug creating a gas seal in the flash hole of the primer (see cutaway below). The result allows the shooter to load up to 200 grains of powder for increased range, energy, and on-game performance.

Using 200 grains of Triple Seven® Pellets in combination with Barnes’ Spit-Fire T-EZTM 250-grain muzzleloader bullets, the Model 700 Ultimate Muzzleloader gives the shooter the ability to reach velocities over 2400 fps. With Remington’s patented breech plug technology, shooters can now experience centerfire-like performance and accuracy out of a muzzleloader.

In addition, the primed brass is easier to handle in the field compared to handling small 209 shotshell primers and spare primed cases can be stored conveniently in the compartment below the receiver.
