Defensive Edge Remington 700 300 Win SOLD

I have a Remington 700 long action 300 Win Mag built by Defensive Edge. I bought the rifle a year ago. I have since bought a 338 Edge and won't get enough trigger time with this to justify keeping it.

From my understanding, the rifle started life as a Remington 700 PSS DM in 300 Win. The rifle has the wonderful H-S Precision PSS stock. After shooting it a while, the original owner had a 26" Sendero-Taper Hart Stainless steel barrel put on my Defensive Edge. While putting it on, he had the action squared and trued. He also had Defensive Edge put on a 20 MOA rail and install a DE Cheekpiece.

The original owner fired 200 rounds through the barrel, I have fired an additional 200 (two boxes of Nosler Ballistic Tips 50ct. and one box of 200gr Sierra Matchkings 100ct.

A total of approximately 400 rounds through the barrel.

I have hunted with the rifle so there are a couple blemishes in the finish and stock of the rifle. Purely cosmetic and you have to look quite closely to see them.

$1400 for the rifle and base. I could include the scope and rings for $2800.

Here is a link for the ad where I purchased Difensive edge 300 win mag/w nightforce

Here are some current photos:

Re: WTS Defensive Edge Remington 700 300 Win

It shot very well for me with 200 SMK and 180 BT/Accubonds using H4831SC. I never photographed any groups or anything but I would conservatively say both loads were 3/4 MOA loads. Many groups were better but I can definitely say that any group greater than 3/4 MOA had a flier on my part.

I didn't do much load development. Pretty much just try a powder charge, seat the bullet out as far as possible and go shoot.

The scope is a NF NXS 5.5-22x56 with the NP1 reticle. Non-Zero Stop and 10 MOA turret.

I'm currently working out a trade for another NF scope so this is a limited time offer.

Disregard my last post. The buyer has backed out. The package is still available.

Ok...the scope has been traded away. It is no longer available in the package. PM's have been returned. I've had a lot of interest, just nobody pulling the trigger. Let's do this. I'm flexible on price and trade.
