I just bought my first Remington 700, .308 Cal rifle. I love this rifle, the stock is by Houge so it's all rubber. I am shooting 150 and 155 gran ammo. I only shot this rifle enough to zero the scope, but I will be back to the range soon.

Take a look at this article and make sure your Model 700 isn't one of the defective models. http://www.usatoday.com/money/industries/manufacturing/2010-10-20-remington-700-trigger-cnbc_N.htm

tigwelder56: Thank you for that link, I checked and I am so glade my 700 isn't on the list. If you have anymore info on any other weapon please pose it as soon as you find out.



The day after Thanksgiving I was able to get to the out door range and shoot for 300 yds. I love windy days when shooting the 700 you really get to try out skills to see how well you can shoot a rifle.



As always, stay safe and keep the powder dry.

i picked up ones of the sps-v's in .223 with the longer 26" bull barrel a while ago, i love it. The stock is very flimsy and not free floated at all. i swapped the stock scope with a burris 3-9 and it delivers .5 moa @ 100 yards with fiocchi 40gr. v-max rounds. i couldn't be happier, when i get my new choate stock and a higher power scope i should get it down to 1/4" moa with practice.

I have been on the long range with this 700 in .308 and it deliveries every time. I am useing a BSA 6-20x50 scope and I am dead center at 400 yds. This coming summer I will going out of state to try my hand at 800-1000 yds. The rifle info I have found says it should reach 800 yds easly, but you have to be good with the .308 round to reach 1000 yds.

But overall with the overmolded houge stock I think my hands will be comfortable even if I can't reach 1000 yds, I will be happy with 800 yds anyday. This is a fine rifle, happy shooting.

I own this model in .223 with a 26" fluted barrel and mounted a Leupold 4x12 on it. Had the trigger adjusted to a crisp 2 lbs. With that combo and my reloads, it is wickedly accurate and I have whacked 100s of prairie dogs. Even factory loads, Fiocchi 40 gr, I rarely miss and when I do it's my fault not the gun. I did have to replace the extractor in the bolt, but that didn't cost much and is the only problem I have had while shooting 1000s of rounds. You cannot go wrong with this model.

Welcome! Hope you enjoy the website!! Did you see my post below dated 11/09/10. This has proven to be accurate and I'm curious if your rifle has experienced any issues like this?
