I am also an advocate of the 700 SS 5R. Cant beat the accuracy for the price.
If you can live without the SS the 700 308PSS is another tough 308 to beat and utilizes a full 26" barrel which for me, is where it is at for LR 308 shooting. The physical velocity gain is only about 40-50 FPS at best. The practical velocity gain where the accuracy is at between the 24 inch barrel and the 26" barrel is 150-200 FPS. Either way, both will get you to the 1K mark with the right bullets.
