Remaining static is a state of decline.
you know your gonna get hate mail on your post!!!!! But your words speak the truth. Corporations evolve thru time, and Remington is not evolving. They are pretty as they were in 1980. They will be pieced out in the near future unless somebody wakes up over there.

I'd rather be hated for being a Christian than a guy who likes a pretty good gun.

as I read your quote, I realized that I'd left a word out of what I intended it to be, and it was critcal. Please allow me to correct it.

"They are pretty much the same as they were in 1980"

I have always considered the 700 to be my favorite rifle but the last few years I don't see to many that I would buy or even like. My last few rifles have been Savage and Browning, I hope Remington gets it together before it's to late. I have shopped and looked at many of their rifles, the only current models I seem to like are the CDL, most of them seem to have cheap stocks, and even the floor plates dont line up.

Re: Remington 700 quality

hi to you all this is nick junior member, sorry but using forums is a bit hard for me to under stand, anyway i noted about remmys are they any good.

I like to say yes the 2 remmy i own are PSS 308 26" barrel with AIC mags hold 10 rounds, dropped into a Mcree ally stock. is shoot sub half inch at 100 yarrds, and load data is 155 scenar heads, viht 140 @ 46.5 gr, cci primers, lapua cases.its is screwed cut with muzzlw brake. NO IF I KNEW HOW TO PUT A PHOTO ONTO THIS FORUM I WOULD PROVIDE A PHOTO.

Secondly newest to the collection is 223 SPS 20" Tactical with T8 sound moddy. blind mag, i shoot single shot as i am learning to keep my head behind scope and not dilly dally my head about. it is zero at 100 yards, but now moved to 1" high so 200 yards is bang on. shoot sierra 69 heads hpbt , 26.5 gn viht 540, small cci primers in lapua and remmy cases. i also shoot warm targets using 45gn Bee heads, 23 gn of Hodgson 335 powder. scopes i use on 308 nightforce 12-42 x 56 NPR 2 reticle and sightron 6-24x50 mild dot reticle . Well thats is it for now so yes remmy rifles are fantastic !!!!!! these rifles are used both for target and for buisness.

Hi Nick,

That's how I use some of my rifles as well. Glad your Rems are shoot'in good. 223 & 308 are inherently accurate calibers. I think your excellent handloads and modifications deserve some credit as well.

I also shoot a 20" barreled .223 N.M. in a Remington 700. I absolutely love the the thing!! My barrel is a heavy contour 14 twist barrel, and I've pretty much settled on 55 grain Hornaday Vmax bullets over BLC2. I get 3274 fps, and have my zero set at 1.3" high. Have shot several dozen coyotes with it. Have been wanting to try N133, but the BLC2 just meters and shoots so well. Barrel is pretty much junk on the gun, and started out as a 26" barrel. Next barrel will be about 22" with the same contour in 1:12 twist or maybe even 1:10.
