Yes, they are excellent rifles, and no, Remington no longer makes them. Regardless of them still making them, it's still a 700. Parts are always readily available.

Very accurate. I have one in 308 also. This past weekend I was able to put 5 touching at 200 yds. With handloads. (175gr. SMK, 42.5grs. of Varget, CCI BR2 primers) The only thing I did to the gun was change out the factory trigger for a Timney.

My 308 PSS with 26" barrel might a bit longer than what many would want to carry in brushy areas or over rough or steep terrain - but it's definitely the most accurate rifle I have ever owned.

Re: Is the Remington PSS accurate?

The PSS is a bit longer than I like and my favorite is the LTR Light Tactical Rifle which has a 20" barrel and it shoots quite well for an out of the box production rifle.

You can get them new in the box on Gunbroker quite easily. Don't know if they're actually still making them or not but last I looked was just a few months ago and I saw several.

Oh.... Just checked and apparently they are....

They are not called 700PSS now. Remington call them 700P.
