700 compact tact 223 xcr

Been looking at these online and think I might like to try one. Does anybody here have any experience with one of these? I have a Savage Max 1 Predator in .223 that I might sell for funds to buy this one.

Re: 700 compact tact 223 xcr

While I don't have any experience with this particular rifle, I am familiar with the issues one can have with a factory 223. The main factor is the rate of twist in the barrel. If you intend to shoot longrange with it, you will want at least an 8 twist as it will stabilize up to 77grain bullets. If you want to shoot 90grain bullets,you will need 7 twist.

Other than that, the rifle you are considering is a Rem700. Everybody makes parts and upgrades for the rifle. So if anything gives you trouble or you don't like some aspect of the rifle, somebody makes a replacement part for it.
I'm not gonna shoot here. I'm gonna shoot waaaaaaaay over there!
