Rem 700 CDL stainless fluted in 7mm ?

I found a pretty good deal on one of these in 7mm rem mag if I want it,just wondering if anyone has one that could tell me if it will handle 168-180gr bullets in its stock form?

    Remington 7mm barrels are 1 in 9.5" twist. Will definitely stabilize 168's, maybe 180's.

    I"ve got a BDL in 7 RM and I've played with 162g AMAX, 168 and 180g VLD's, and 175g ULD RBBT's and they all shot great out of the stock barrel and twist. You should even have room in the magazine to seat the bullets out to the lands and still be able to use as a repeater. I know mine does.

    I too was thinking about getting one but what kind of groups were you getting right out of the box.

    I have this rifle in the blued version,and it will put 168 Berger VLDs under 1/2" @100.I haven't done anything to the rifle except lighten the trigger a little bit.
