New rifle for Christmas! Remington 700 5R Milspec #4613842

So, I ordered this a while back as some may recall. I was in the store the other day, as I had been travelling for work recently and so unable to go in and pick it up, and was surprised by the patron who stated it wouldn't be in until February, which was odd, because it was in stock when he ordered it shrug

Turns out, it was all an elaborate ruse perpetrated by my wife, who got me it for Christmas.

Specs are:
- .308 Win
- Stainless
- 24" 1:11 heavy barrel
- HS Precision stock

Full review on the rifle can be found on Sniper Central

And a quick box-open pic:




Now I have to get optics and a mount for it. Have lots of time, deer season is a long way off!

I've got two of them in that exact configuration. They are great right out of the box. Slap on a 20 MOA Picatinny rail and a nice scope and practice shooting to 1,000 yards. You'll learn all about wind and long range shooting, inexpensively too. And when you fire your .338 Lapua out that far it will nice and easy. wink

That's a beautiful rifle. I'm sure it will shoot accurately. You'll be happy with it.

If you've seen some of OVERKILL's other gun posts, he's far from putting cheap optics on his rifles.

I'd love to put a PMII on it, but for the range this rifle is going to be used, it may just get a Bushnell Elite 6500 in 2.5-16x42. I had that scope on two other rifles, my .270 and my .223 and was really impressed with its clarity, particularly for the price.

My long-range precision rig (CADEX Defence CDX-33 in .338LM) wears a Gen II Razor, which was what was recommended by the manufacturer, as I was shopping PMII's, Steiner and some others in the price range, and the Vortex won based on their recommendation and use.

Let us know how you like the stock. I have the same one on a 20" R700 and it feels like the pamlswell is just massive. I've been tempted to sell it and go buy a chassis.

Thanks smile

It'll get a Leupold Mark 4 mount, which conveniently, is in stock at the shop ;-)

I was REALLY impressed with the quality of the IMS on my other .308, and the CADEX mount is just too much money for a deer rifle, not to mention, it would be pretty tall for a gun that's not going to be used for 1,000 yard shots and isn't going to get glass that needs that much relief.

I will. I can say right now that it is a bit wider than the one that was on my 10FCP-K, but not by a lot. I was REALLY fond of that stock (which was swapped out for a CADEX Chassis later on) and ultimately, getting rid of the stock and putting it in the heavier chassis made it a very poor deer rifle, though it did really help with making it a better bench and field gun.
