Rem 700 Police in .22-250?

Hi everyone,

I have lots of trouble controlling the crow population on my hunting lease in Germany. The only way to get to them is a decent long range rig. (Waiting under the trees where they roost would be an option but is a lot less fun! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img])

Now, a firearms dealer offers a Rem 700 Police in the caliber .22-250. While I am very confident that this caliber and rifle would be more than up to the task, I doubt if Remington ever built a Rem 700 Police in this caliber??? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

He furthermore states that it is a kevlar inforced stock with alloy bedding block which suggests that it is the HS Precision stock that's on all Rem Police. But then the color is not plain black but black/grey web unlike the original Police stocks.

It is probably a good rifle either way but I would be very thankful if you could help me to find out whether this is a genuine Rem 700 Police or a somehow modified custom rig.

Thanks very much for your help,

elwood.

How about a 22LR and a FoxPro? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

I don´t know how far you are planning to shoot, but if you don´t find that 2.250 i would go with a 6 mm cartridge - much batter BC..

Thats not the PSS (police) but the VS which is basicaly the same thing. It probably is a good gun and the 22-250 is more than up to the task and loaded with a 40gr bullet it makes and awsome ball of feathers when you wack a crow.
I'm not sure what the conversion is from your Euro to our dollar so i can't realy say what type of deal that it is.

Alright, good to know, thanks! I just do not like sellers that are inaccurate when it comes to labelling their items... I like to know what I am buying!

The price of 1000 euros equals 1200 $. But then it is an auction and considering the value of the scope alone I suppose this is not the last word...

Thanks for your help,

Re: Rem 700 Police in .22-250?

I understand the sellers not being accurate part , I once saw a rifle at a gun show that I was intersted in getting to build on , I looked at the tag for the price and saw

"almost new , Browning 700 Featherweight , $1400"

The gun was a Weatherby MarkV that doesen't sell new for near that price !! I asked the guy that was running the table if I could take his Picture wtih the Tag and he got pissy , then got realy mad when i told him the gun was miss marked. He said " I have been doing this for 20yrs , I know what the hell I have out in my racks !!"

Elwood, JDJ is right, thats a VS. the Police stock is a slightly different configuration. has a palm swell and a slightly fatter for end.
I'll follow the auction and see what the rifle makes,
22.250 is a great caliber, and its good for Roe Deer too.
for your crows a 22.250, a 223, a 5.6x50 all would be suitable. You need one building?
