REMINGTON 700 BARREL | REMINGTON 700 AFTERMARKET BARREL
The Remington 700 Barrel -These days Remington does a fine job manufacturing accurate rifles. However there may come a time when the old Remington 700 is not shooting groups as tight as it once did or maybe you just want the best accuracy that can be achieved from your rifle. A replacement barrel is a good investment. Its like getting a new and more accurate gun at half the price.
All barrels for a Remington model 700 will be required to be fitted to some degree by a gunsmith. If you choose a barrel such as the Shilen it requires the least amount of work as it is pre threaded with a cut chamber. This means it only needs reamed to the final dimension. Other barrels are purchased as blanks and must be cut to length, threaded and have the chambers cut and reamed for your desired caliber. In many cases the barrel will require some sort of coloring or protective coating as many barrels are sold “in the white”.
Note: There are no drop in barrels for a Remington 700. All replacement barrels must be fitted and headspaced by a qualified gunsmith
Note: Replace your factory Remington 700 Trigger before you consider a new barrel. Visit the Remington 700 Trigger page for further information.

Shilen Remington 700 Barrels
Range time, competition wins and online reviews speak volumes. Shilen Barrels are among a small group of elite barrel manufacturers that can be considered the best of the best.
Shilen Select Match Grade Remington 700 Barrel – These stainless steel masterpieces of machining and hand lapping are intended for the competition shooter– or even the hunter– who wants the ultimate in accuracy and quality. These are our highest grade barrel and, of course, the most costly. What makes them so good that benchrest shooters, such as Tony Boyer, crave them? Consider this: To meet Select Match Grade criteria, the groove diameter must air gauge within .0003″ of our standard diameter. Moreover, the uniformity of the bore cannot vary more than .0001″ for the entire length of the barrel. These barrels are also completely stress relieved, and the bore is polished to a gleaming surface finish by our most experienced lappers.
Shilen Match Grade Remington 700 Barrel
Our Match Grade barrels don’t quite meet Select Match criteria– but not by much! In these barrels, the bore must measure within .0005″ of our standard diameter and cannot vary in diameter more than .0003″ for the length of the barrel. So how much accuracy does a couple of “tenths” give away, compared to our Select Match barrels? Perhaps not any! The point is, whether or not there is any real difference in the accuracy potential between the Match and Select Match grades, the really demanding shooter must play it safe and go with the higher grade. In many cartridges and barrel twists, the accuracy difference between the two simply can’t be detected. So unless you’re gunning for one-hole groups or just demand the top of the line, the Match Grade barrel is your best choice for many forms of competitive shooting and for hunting varmints and big game. The Match Grade is completely stress relieved and fully warranted. The price of Match Grade stainless steel barrels includes hand lapping to a beautifully smooth surface. Chrome-moly can be lapped to a similar finish at an additional charge. Both are available in all calibers, twists and contours.
Shilen Remington 700 barrels are pre-threaded short-chambered and crowned. Barrel exteriors are polished to a 180-grit finish, and the bores have been hand lapped. Requires installation and finish chambering by a qualified gunsmith.

Lilja barrels are made from rifle barrel quality, 416-type stainless and 4140-type chrome-moly steels manufactured in the U.S. In addition, all of our tooling is either made in our shop or by U.S. suppliers. The barrels are pull-button rifled, with a very uniform twist rate. Every barrel is stress-relieved in a vacuum furnace, handlapped, and inspected with a video bore scope. Quality is also assured through the use of our Sheffield Air Gauge System and Rockwell Hardness Tester. Stainless steel barrels are guaranteed to be uniform dimensionally to .0001″ and free from internal tool marks. Chrome-moly barrels are uniform to within .0002″ end to end. We do not have different grades of barrels in the two types of steel: just one, our best match quality.
