REMINGTON 700 OVERVIEW
The new Remington M700 was advertised in 1962 as the strongest bolt action rifle in the world. It also touted the best accuracy out of the box for a production-grade rifle. The cylindrical receiver, bedding that floats the barrel, and fast lock all contribute to this accuracy.
The cylindrical receiver provided excellent balance, far above other rifles of the day. In conjunction with a fast lock time of 3.2 milliseconds, the Remington 700 was as accurate as they come. The faster the rifle can propel the projectile down range, the better, and this one hit the mark.
Also contributing to the rifle’s accuracy was the crisp trigger and the bold design that kept the cartridge centered in the chamber. This combination of engineering features made the rifle more consistent than ever before.
The Remington 700 was plain but attractive and reliable. It was hugely successful in the beginning in part because Remington released it in a 7mm Remington Magnum caliber. It boosted even farther ahead of its competition with the spike in Magnum popularity in the 1960s. Over the decades, it has steadily improved on its best features, and added new ones as well.
After being chambered in almost every cartridge made, more versions than nearly any other rifle in history, and all kinds of barrels for all applications, it’s not hard to see why the Remington 700 is still so popular today.
- The three rings of steel on the receiver and the hammer-forged barrel come together to continue the tradition of the most popular bolt-action rifle in history, making it highly accurate and a great companion for hunting or home defense.
- The Model 700 has tactical precision and is a top choice among the military elite. This confidence in its accuracy and dependability translates well to the hunting arena where you can pursue big game with unmatched rigor.
- The current lineup of Remington Model 700s includes an incredible thirty varieties, but if you don’t see what you want, build a custom with an endless array of options including caliber, barrel length, stock type, stock color, threaded barrels, accessories, and more.

REMINGTON 700 TACTICAL
The Tactical variants of the most popular bolt-action rifle in history is a precision or competition shooter’s dream. Model 700 comes with a tactical chassis, a Magpul stock, and with tactical features on CDL and ADL models too.
REMINGTON 700 TACTICAL CHASSIS REVIEW
While the Remington 700 Tactical’s foundation is the same as the Model 700 and it comes chambered in .308 Winchester, .300 Winchester Magnum, and .338 Lapua Magnum, that’s just about the only thing they have in common. “The Model 700 barreled action is installed in the excellent TAC21 precision alloy chassis made by MDT Engineering.” (1)
The Remington 700 Tactical is a military-grade tactical rifle with unmatched reliability, versatility, precision, and durability. The ergonomic design allows you to easily add components to suit your application. Floating 24” or 26” barrel options give you accuracy and a fully adjustable stock, and pistol grip make you more consistent shot after shot in any scenario.
The trigger system is fully adjustable and offers custom-grade performance in a production trigger with a clean break and no creep. The barrel is machined from a solid piece of steel with a black Cerakote finish, making it look sleek and business-like.
REMINGTON 700 308
You can buy a Remington 700 308 in many varieties like the VTR, XCR, SPS, PCR, Magpul, and others. The 308 heavy barrel is hammer-forged for accuracy. With good ammunition, you’ll find tip-top accuracy to match and exceed the accuracy of other barrels, but even with cheap ammo, you won’t be disappointed in your groups.
With the heavy barrel and the hard-hitting round of the .308 ammunition, you’ll be able to bring your long-range precision shooting to a whole new level.
REMINGTON 700 VS RUGER PRECISION RIFLE
Ruger released the Precision Rifle in an attempt to offer an affordable blue-collar solution for precision shooting in a model that was not based on a hunting rifle, but instead, built brand new from the ground up.
The Ruger Precision Rifle offers a vertical grip, configurable stock, threaded muzzle, and high-capacity magazine capability. It’s available in Magnum calibers like the Remington 700 and also has sporting variants, although they don’t have nearly the options that the Remington 700 has.
The barrel is hammer-forged steel, and the trigger is fully externally adjustable just like the 700, but the Ruger Precision Rifle has a more tactical appearance instead of the traditional one of the Remington. Both are incredibly accurate, offer excellent ergonomics, and are well-known for their durability.
REMINGTON 700 - LAST WORD
The Remington 700 series offers the best of the best when it comes to reliability, accuracy, and options. You won’t find a better precision instrument for all of your customization needs than the best-selling bolt-action rifle of all time.
