Opinions on a good out of the box 308.

I'm looking for a out of the box 308 that I can use as a 600yd plinker. I'm thinking about a Rem 700 XCR Tactical LR, Maybe a VTR Target Tactical but I'm not crazy about the triangular barrel. What else can you guys suggest?

    Remington 5R. Tack driver right out of the box. I have one that will shoot 5 shot ragged holes all day long with the right handload.

    Yep! I have the 24" 10th Anniversary model. It shoots 1/4 MOA (or smaller) groups with handloads, a trigger swap & tune, and properly torquing the action screws to 65 inch pounds. Worst case scenario, you might have to bed the action, but that's nothing.
