Re: Remington 700 vsf. Thoughts??

I have 2 Rem 700 VSSF's . One in 308 and one in 223. I can't tell you enough good things about them. They are very accurate for a off the shelf rifle. They both shoot sub MOA with quality factory ammo at 100 yds. And with good hand loads shoot MOA at 200 yards and beyond. Don't ask me about the hand loads though. I don't reload, my friend does,and he came up with a very nice load for both of these guns. The only down side is the trigger(they are terrible!!) So either plan on doing a trigger job(I did) or replace it with a good quality aftermarket trigger. I hope this helps you make your decision. take care Mate

Re: Remington 700 vsf. Thoughts??

Hi from another southener. Casn't claim to have the rigorous expereince as many here - However I have been very happy with my remmington

The first rifle I shot seriously is a Remmington 700 VS in .223rem - with H&K stock. I love it with remmington accutips factory loads I have taken rabbits out to 450m and even there the only inaccuracy I could detect was in me.

I now have bough a much more expensive lighter rifle for doing the long distance walk/varminting I do - but for pure accuracy I would still go back to the remmington. I have trazded other rifles but have kept the remmington.

Another advantage is theat here, where gunsmiths are hard to come by, everyone can work on Remmingtons and tune them quickly and easily. Though all I needed for the field work I do was to have the trigger lightened

Hoepfully you are having fun as you "shop"

I think you will like the Rem 700 alot. I have several of them myself & I am always looking for my next one. The trigger will probably have to be adjusted but I think that you will be pleased with the overall accuracy out of the box.
