remington barrels??

I have been looking at buying a new rifle and was wondering if the barrels on the remington 700 sps are any different then on the bdl or the xcr 2.

maybe another forum like benchrest.com under factory/hybrid you can get a response. or remington. only thing i know is the heavy barrels do better than the sporters for me.

Re: remington barrels??

I am sure there are others on here that are better knowing. Everything I have heard about remington barrels is they are cheap, mass produced. But have heard the barrels that come from the custom shop are better then the mass produced barrels. I have a sendero and I am certain my barrel is already shot out and I have not even had it a year. Also still don't have a load figured out for it. But for the money I would go with a custom gun. I wished I would have.

Re: remington barrels??

hey thanks for the info. I have a remington 700 sps in a 270 and anything 300 yards or farther is not impressive at all. Thats why I was wondering if the barrels on a bdl,cdl or the xcr are any different as far as accuracy. Alot of people say there remingtons shoot lights out so I was wondering if I just have a bad one or what the deal is. My remington vssf2 in a 223 is awsome...shoots less then a 2in group at 400 yards. Thats why im so dissapointed in my 270. So if anyone out there has a suggestion of a good left handed 308 or 300 win mag that could be accurate out to 6-700 yards im open to suggestions.

Re: remington barrels??

All the barrels for Remington rifles are produced off the same machinery and all hammer forged. Can't say about the custom shop guns.
If you have a SPS that don't shoot its probably due to stock. Thats where the big difference is other than cosmetic's. Triggers can be adjusted and if the crown is bad it can be re crowned but the stocks on those things suck. Toss the stock and put something decent on it like a H.S. Precision or a Bell and Carlson with the aluminum bedding blocks.

put a BERGARA .308 on it. you can do it yourself, and they are tack drivers ! I have built 4 for myself ( different cal.)and sold several more to friends, and all are stellar performers.

my experience is different- i have 6 long action magnum senderos.( i have two of the short action varmint type) they flat out shoot . my son and son in law ; shooting two different ones in a 1000 yard match each shot a 15 shot group you could cover with a sheet of notebook paper. none of mine have ever shot bigger than an 1 moa with any load i tried. yes their barrels are hammerforged. i have two senderos with krieger barrels they shoot awesome.
