Rem 700 Long Range?

Has anyone had the opportunity to handle the newish 700 Long range with the Bell and Carlson M40 stock from the factory? To me it looks like an SPS Varmint with an upgraded stock and in appropriate long range calibers. From what I've seen I'm wondering, is it a Cabela's exclusive? I can't find any reviews except for on their site and no one else seems to have them for sale.

I handled one at Sportsmans Warehouse a few weeks ago. So it is not a Cabelas exclusive. I doesn't have some of the finishing touches of a Sendero. The bold is not jeweled and the solder resin was not buffed from the bolt arm solder weld. Barrel finish was not as nice. Felt great though.

There were a few sold elsewhere. Cabelas seems to be very well priced on them. Perhaps Broz will chime in? He and I talked about one. He had the chance to handle one a couple of weeks ago. He thought the barrel was like the old Sendero style. The impression I got from him was that he thought they could be made to shoot without too much trouble and expense. That's if they didn't do great right out of the box. He said the .300 Win Mag he looked at was $699. I've seen a couple posted for a lot more so look around before you buy. Bruce

Yeah, I've seen them posted from private individuals and retailers anywhere from $647 to 850. I think 699 to 740 is pretty average and It seems to have everything I'd need to get back into the long range game.

Buddy just picked up the 7mm mag two weeks ago and I would have to agree with above. I must say it does feel good to me. I liked the higher comb...Anxious to try it at the range. He wants to work up loads using the 160 accubond
