I don't have one, but I do want one. I have several rifles in that caliber, and almost every centerfire rifle I have is a Rem 700. Like trebark, most of mine are custom builds and the actions have been blueprinted, but most 700's can be shooters out of the box with load development.hello I am thinking of getting the Remington 700 long-range in 7mm rem mag. I just like to see if any off u have one and what u think about the lr 700
If you buy the 700LR in 7mmRM, I'd rebarrel your 7mm-08 into a .260 Rem or a .260 Ackely Improved (if you're an experienced handloader) with a 26" heavy sendero/varmint barrel.thanks of the info I like to long range model because it comes with a bell and Carlson m 40 stock saves some money when u buy a new stock I also have a rem ss in 7mm08 that needs a new barrel just haven't desided to keep it 7mm08
Great advice. I'd go with...http://www.longrangehunting.com/forums/f53/my-260-mcr-59628/If you buy the 700LR in 7mmRM, I'd rebarrel your 7mm-08 into a .260 Rem or a .260 Ackely Improved (if you're an experienced handloader) with a 26" heavy sendero/varmint barrel.
Caliber doesn't make any difference as to whether the barrel's throats are properly cut. A faulty/dull reamer can cause an improperly cut throat, and that can happen to any rifle in any caliber. Especially a rifle that was factory chambered in mass quantities (regardless of brand).I looked into getting one of these in a 7mm but changed my mind to a 300 rum. The nice gun sales man behind the counter explained to me that he owns this rifle in both calibers and that the 7mm's barrels aren't finished properly in the throat sometimes and that you need to have a Remington dealer fix it, also was told to replace the action screws right away since they are pot metal. Ultimately I think the rifle is to good a deal to pass up and I will be purchasing one as soon as I can convince the wife to let me.
