Remington LSS opinions

Has anyone shot a Remington LSS? I'm wondering what kind of barrel it's got on it, quality-wise for consistent shot placement.
I want a barrel that doesn't heat up too quickly, but at the same time I don't want a really heavy varmint barrel either.
I'm considering this rifle in .243 caliber (notice my other post).

Re: Remington LSS opinions

Yes, I have shot over a dozen of them. They are Remington's best valued gun in my opinion. Or should I say were the best valued Remington. They no longer produce it for 2007.

The barrel is a good diameter to hunt with and still expect decent accuracy but the stock was what set this model apart. It is heads and tails better than any of their Tupperware stocks they have now.

Goodgrouper,
Yes, it looks like I'd have to get one off gunbroker or something if I want one.
Did the barrel appear to maintain accuracy after a string of a few shots?

Re: Remington LSS opinions

Well, they do to a point. It really depends on how warm the ambient air temp is. They do as good as any hunting weight barrel.

Each of them is individual of course but I would say on a 50 degree day that you can shoot probably in the area of 7-8 shots from a 243 before the bullets start walking. It is much less on an ultra mag-probably in the area of 4 shots or 3.

Re: Remington LSS opinions

I got one in a 300rum and it shoots about 1-1.5moa with handloads. it is good up to 500 for elk where you can pack it around and still kill the crap out of stuff. I like it, just wish it shot better.

Re: Remington LSS opinions

Ive got one and loved it till...I bought a new gun......05" groups at 300yds with nothing but a trigger job. I just kinda retired the 7RM to play with other stuff. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Remington LSS opinions

I have one in 7mm RM, and it shoots .5 to .75" groups with Federal Premium 160 gr accubonds, and a little better with handloads. I haven't noticed any shot stringing, even when firing some pretty quick groups.
