Remington 700 SPR .270 WSM

Has anyone seen one of these. It is a matte finish BDL in synthetic stock. My dealer got one in today and sold it about 5 min. before I got there. What are your opinions on this rifle for long range. I realize the stock needs to be replaced, but are Remington's factory barrels decent in a round such as the short mag? Is the .270 WSM a good round for long range?

I like the Remington action and most of my rifles are Remington, but I'm looking very hard at a dedicated long range rifle and I like the Short Mag concept. I've been leaning toward the .300WSM, but this SPR wholesales for $399 and that seems like a great price to get started. It is a short action though and I've heard complaints about seating depth in the short actions.

Anyway, your input is greatly appreciated.

Take care,

CC

I may be wrong but Remington does not make any guns chambered for WSM calibers. Those are Winchesters.

Remington has their own line of short mags, the Short Action Ultra Mag, or SAUM.

dwm,

That's what I said. Then he showed me the rifle. It is called a Special Purpose Rifle, kind of like their Special Purpose shotguns. Blacl synthetic and matte finish. I think this is the only rifle offered in a WSM caliber.

Steve,

Thanks for the heads up on Shortmags.com.

Take care,

CC

I would like to have one of those myself but I was hoping to hear some accuracy info. It's listed on the Remington site.

Re: Remington 700 SPR .270 WSM

Ok, complaints on Magnum caliber short action Remington 700 actions: The maganizine box is too short!

They are mainly single shots. If you reload and like to seat your bullets long and close to the lands, you will get at most one round in the magazine.

If you are interested in anyhing in SAUM/WSM, 6.5/284, etc, have one built on a REM700 long action.

I hear they are ok for .308/.243, not sure though. I know they are fine for the 22-250.

Re: Remington 700 SPR .270 WSM

I shot 7 matches at the 1000yd Pa. bench rest club with a Winchester Coyote cambered in 270 WSM. using SMK 135 Grain Bullets winchester and Norma brass. The best 10 shot group I got was 20 inches. The largest group was 38 inches [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] All I can say,is with my gun. I wouldn't go out past 700 to 800 yrds with it. I hope this helps. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
