Re: M-700 VLS 300 RUM ?
I dont doubt what you have been told, but i will re-iterate Remington never made a VLS in 300 RUM.
I can only think you might have a hybrid of parts, not unlike my buddies Left hand stainless fluted 25-06 Sendero with blue action, an excellent shooter put together by his dealer from the action off a new BDL and the barrel and stock from a new Sendero, which gave up its action for a custom. An early blued sendero barrelled action, bedded into a modified VLS stock is a distinct possibility and would make great rifle.
Either way it sounds like it will be a nice rig, some pics would appreciated when you get it.
