Remington 29663 700 5-R Military Specs .308 Winchester 24 Inch Stainless Barrel
Not appearing on the Remington website is one of their best kept secrets, the Remington 700 5-R Mil Spec. The Remington 700 5-R Mil Spec features a Remington M700 stainless steel barreled action with a 24 inch R5 mil-spec barrel, the same barrel used in the Remington Defense M-24 sniper rifles. Barrel features a 11.25 inch twist rate with five lands and grooves and eleven degree target crown. Stock has aluminum bedding in block in standard VS configuration.
“Offering this Model 700 for ten years is a testimony to the popularity and acceptance by shooters wanting to own an exceptionally accurate rifle at a reasonable price,” states Category Manager, Dave Regula. At the core of the 700 with 5-R Rifling is the machined stainless steel, cylindrical Model 700 receiver design ensuring uniformity, strength and solid bedding area. Unique to this precision rifle is the 24-inch stainless steel, heavy barrel featuring 5-R Tactical Rifling — the same hammer-forged barrel used on the Remington M-24 sniper rifles.
The 5-R Rifling barrel features five lands with a right hand twist which allows for less bearing surface on the bullet for slightly increased velocity.
As a result of less bullet drag, copper fouling in the bore is reduced ensuring long-term accuracy and consistency. The barrel is offered with a 110 target-style crown and a 1 in 11.25-inch twist.
The rock-solid barreled action is full-length, aluminum bedded into a well-designed H-S Precision stock for enhanced stability and shot-to-shot consistency. Add Remington’s X-Mark Pro® externally adjustable trigger, designed to “break-like-glass” and set at 3.5 pounds from the factory, and this rifle delivers surgical-like accuracy.
