Varmint Rifle

Planning on building up a varmint rifle and want to know if the Remington m700 would be the best choice of sporting rifle actions.

    ...rem 700 is by far the most popular...on average, the older actions are preferred over the newer ones... I would start with a new Rem vls and go from there...will give you a chance to shoot immediately and maybe begin upgrading project in the off season... thanks

    If you are buying it for the action only, then I would buy an ADL, junk the rest and build up from there. That will save you a little money over a Sendero or VLS.

    i agree with chris remington makes an awesome action and rifle. I have a .308 700 and it shoots flawless. Chris mathews do you no where one could get a varmit stock for a bull barrel to fit a adl?

    Old Varmint, I just bought a .308 Rem. VSLH for just such a purpose.

    But after shooting it today, I might have to suffer awhile longer and keep it stock!! Holy cow!! Under a 1/2" moa at 100 yards, out of the box. Suits me. It can only get better!!...Check them out..sakofan.. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    Thanks guys, what you have said has confirmed my gut feeling, will look for a model 700 ADL in good condition. My gunsmith has worked on 700s, model 70s, Sako's & weatherby's so should not be a problem. Will only choose one of the others if I can't find a decent 700.
