Remington 700 Boone & Crockett

Hi all, I'm looking at buying a Remington 700 CDL Boone & Crockett, laminate stock, blued fluted, with jewelled bolt. Next to no rounds down it, mint. 7mm-08.....wondering if anyone has this rifle, even in other caliber, and what they think of it. This rifle is close to $1200 new here in Canada, I can have for $800, so it seems like a very fair price. Any opinions/insight would be appreciated. This would be my main hunting rifle, deer and elk. I had initially been looking at a Tikka T3, but this seems like a very good quality rifle to me.....

Twisted, if you like it and the price is right, go for it. I looked at Gunbroker and there are still a few of those in the states that are going for around $750-775 in different calibers. NIB. The laminate stocks are nice because as you probably know they are stable and can be bedded. That's a great caliber too.

Re: Remington 700 Boone & Crockett

Buy it, you will not be disappointed. I bought one last year in 300WSM. Full length fluted barrel and lightweight laminated stock makes for light, balanced rifle. Fit and finish was really impressive too, reminded me more of a Kimber then a Remington. The B&C models are a steal of a deal here in the US at $650 to $750. If I had the cash I would buy another one in 7mm-08 (originally what I was looking for, but found a steal of a deal on the WSM).

Well, I did buy it! And as you say, it is a fine piece of workmanship. I haven't had the chance to set it up yet with a scope, or take it to the range, but am looking forward to it.

Pricewise, with the current exchange rate, it cost the equivalent of $725 USD, so I think I got a pretty fair price on it. Shooting iron always costs more here in Canada than in the US, go figure.....

Re: Remington 700 Boone & Crockett

Congrats on your purchase and let me know how it shoots (I'm trying to talk a buddy into buying the same rifle/same caliber). Don't forget to save up for a good scope for it (take a look at the Bushnell 6500 series, Sightron Big Sky SII and the SIII series as well as Zeiss Conquest). It sounds like you got a fair price for Canada...could be worse, you could be paying what the Aussie prices ... theose poor buggers really get the shaft on firearms, optics and even bows.

Actually, I have two NIB Baush & Lomb Elite 4200s (they are older, Japanese glass, very nice) sitting in my closet. One is 3-10 x 40mm, the other 4-16 x 50 mm....I think I'm going to mount the 3-10, and save the other for a varmint getter, which is yet to be determined....

Congrats! Sounds like a nice deal. Where are you at in Canada? My wife is from Stratford.
