Re: Remington 700 w/ 5R barrel??????
[ QUOTE ]
I believe the Model you are referring too is the "700 Stainless Special 5R Milspec Barrel". The Remington Order No is 29663. The barrel is a heavy stainless and 24" instead of the usual 26". Stock is the same as a Sendero or VS and grey in color. This is a .308, don't know if they make anything else with the 5R barrel. My local dealer gets them in occaisionally, I think he said from AccuSport. I bought one in October and my buddy bought one this month. Very accurate for a factory gun, .3-.5 at 100 yards with 168 SMK and IMR 4895. However, it has a very long throat! Can't get a 168 SMK to touch the lands!

Shortly after getting the M24 contract, Remington started making their own 5R barrels. However, they still have to meet the 1/2 minute of angle accuracy requirement specified by the Army.
