Remington 5-R Mil Spec.

I was in a local store and saw a Rem 700 .308 24" 5-R Mil Spec. It didn't have a normal PSS stock. It had a lighter forend beaver tail with two studs. What is it? Does Rem make the barrel?

    Yes remington makes the barrel. This rifle is similar to the old VSSF. The differance in that it uses a 24" bbl vs a 26" and has no flutes. The twist is also 11.25 vs 12. The stock and action are the same as the old VSSF as well as the bbl contour. They were a limited production rifle by remington. In short it is a cross between an M24 and a VSSF.

    Hope that helps
    Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

    Mike Rock had the Army contract for barrels but when he could not keep up with demand- Remington bought it and started make a 5R hammer forged barrel- some shot okay but no where near as good as the real thing from Rock.
