Rem 700 DM vs. Standard?


Mar 11, 2002
Would a DM have a negative effect on accuracy compared to a standard magazine?

Also, has anyone experienced any problems with the detachable mag on the Rem 700?

I've never had a DM model Rem 700 but they are NOT the preferred models for the tactical type shooters either new or for rebuilds. Reports have been that the mags fall out and are generally poorly constructed. Most shooters switch to the H-S detachable mag floorplate.

I've not heard of any accuracy problems with them but that's from limited input.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
