Much higher ballistic coefficients and even velocities with heavier bullets.

Also great selection of VLD bullets for the above suggested calibers. The Higher BC VLD bullets become enormously important out west because of the winds you'll be dealing with on a regular basis.

As for the Remington, as others stated, the 700 action is amongst the best by far with an enormous aftermarket parts availability.
Ya cant buy those calibers in a standard off the shelf rifle ( 700 VLS)

243 Win Cartridge Guide within AccurateShooter.com

I think the caliber you want will do all you need. One of the BOTW clips you can find on line shows them dropping a yote at 1100yds with a 243 using a 107SMK.

Mucho thanks Tank......and no Im noty locked into any bullet weight and would use the one that gave me the best distance at a decent speed. I'll check all that out...and thanks again

The factory barrel is a 9 1/8 twist ( how they ever arrived at that is beyond me??) and I figure that will do me until I get it shot out...lol...or until I at least see its a lost cause....

Not sure what is available in the VLS without special order but those calibers are all avialable in a long list of 700 variants off of the shelf.

Bolt Action Centerfire - Model 700 Centerfire Rifle - Remington Bolt Action Centerfire Rifle

You're missing the point evidently...
1) I DONT WANT a .260Rem, 6.5 Rem Mag, 264wm, 6.5x284 or 7mm mag.
2) Those calibers ARE NOT AVAILABLE in the model I wish to buy ( VLS)
3) Everything the VLS has to offer I like / or wish to have

4) If they did offer it...and they dont...the alternative caliber(s) Id chose would be a 6.5-06; 25-06 and maybe???( but I really doubt it) a .270 but AGAIN the arent offered in the VLS model.
