The Remington Model 700 series of firearms are hunting rifles produced and manufactured by Remington Arms.

Remington has manufactured and produced the rifle since 1962. All are based on the same receiver; they a 3, 4 or 5-round internal magazine, use centerfire bolt action, and can be equipped with third-party rifle stocks and telescopic sights. Some variants of the Remington 700 can mount slings, bipods, and other accessories. Some Remington Model 700 rifles for faster reloading are made with detachable magazines.

Both the United States Army's M24 Sniper Weapon System and the United States Marine Corps' M40 sniper rifles are constructed from the Remington 700 rifle, in various different degrees of modification. Closely to 90% of the police sharpshooter rifles within the United States, as well as in a number of foreign countries outside of the United States, are modeled after Remington 700s, specifically the Remington 700PSS model (now referred to as the 700P) according to Remington Firearms company information.

Remington also markets the 700 to law enforcement agencies and Military forces under the Remington Military banner and Remington Military Law Enforcement, with the law/military enforcement 700s being called the Model 700P ("Police"). The Remington 700P series appears to have been influenced by the features, designs, and success of the M40 series and the M24 SWS, with one unique feature of the Model 700P series of rifles being the thicker and heavier barrel standard with the Remington Model 700P rifles (a feature copied from the M24, M40, and the various Remington 700 rifles used by police snipers and sharpshooters throughout the world before the Model 700P came into existence). There are two primary models of the 700P — the standard 700P and the slightly more advanced 700P Light Tactical Rifle (LTR). Both Remingtons also come with a significant Tactical Weapons System (TWS) package, complete with bipods, telescopic sights and carrying cases.

The Police versions of the Remington 700 are extremely popular with civilian hunters and shooters who like the "government issue" appearance as well as the accuracy and handling. Remington also markets the 700 to law-enforcement agencies, military forces, and civilian rifle hunters and shooters. Remington also sells the standard, United States Army-issue Leupold Mark IV M3 10 x 40 mm telescopic sight utilized by the Army's M24 as a primary optional feature.

300 Win Mag

I have a Remington 700, in the 300 WinMag caliber. Nice gun, shoots tight groups.

I had to have a good muzzle put on it to manage the recoil. and have a trigger job done. And it is a little heavy to be hiking around for fun and hunting. But it does get the job done.

Remington 700 in .308

I use to own one in 308 and it was a shooter. Great gun and very accurate. Best 3 shot group at 100 yds. was .057 of an inch and I shoot a 3 shot group at 200 yds. that was .377 of an inch. Plan on buying another one when I get some money.

Remmington 700

Do they make a 5 round model for the .30-06? I liked the look of the 700P
also the 700SPS ( Synthetic Polymer Stock )as well.

What is a good low light scope to get for the buget minded deer hunter?

Good. Bad. I'm just the guy with the gun.

Great gun

The 700 is a great gun, very accurate they can be a little pricey though, Take a look at the Savage line, I picked up a Savage 10 in .243 at a pawn shop for 250.00 with a nikon prostaff 3x9x50.

a remington 700sps is the perfect rifle to get started with, i own two, 1 in .308 and 1 in 7mm08, the are very robust yet light enough for bush hunting, i would suggest a stainless model as they require a lot less maintenance and it will last you a life time, with my 308 i have taken deer with 1 clean shot out to 750m bearing in mind i have had military sniper training so dont expect to be making shots like that until you get alot of practice,
good luck with whatever choice you make

Remington 700

I have had experienced the Model 700, in many configurations, in both military and civilian applications. After owning quite a number of them, I've kept one, uniquely accurate 700 ADL, in 308 Winchester. I replaced the stock with a Carbelite...Pillar Bedded, free floated, and skim bedded the action. With a Leupold bridge style/Redfield style one pc. mount, Leupold STD 1" Med.-high rings, and a Monarch 5-20x44 Scope. These, with a Harris Bipod (9-13"), that my loving wife supplied me, complete a rifle that has continually produced 3/4" groups, (FIVE SHOT STRINGS) at 200 yds. I load 150 gr. Nosler Ballistic Tips, or Accubonds and/or CTs, at velocities ranging between 2600 and 2880 fps, at the muzzle. I primarily hunt deer with this rifle, and have never missed in eight years, eight shots, eight deer, at ranges between 76 to 311 yards. The barrel length is 22", and yes the action, and barrel are factory original...like I stated, this gem is uniquely accurate. I don't think Remington makes a bad Model 700 Rifle, it is just that some are more accurate than others, coming off the assembly line.

i think that accuracy in factory arms is definietly a variable from weapon to weapon.my Savage M111 in .270 Win shoots like a house afire but others have complained of the accuracy of this weapon.some are good and some are bad.

I own a 700 SPS 30-06 with a 4-12x50 scope. Love it! And it shoots like a dream. I'm trying to get rid of it though, cuz I have another baby on the way
