Default Just Bought a Remington 700 ADL .308

Well guys, Just bought a Brand New Remington 700 ADL .308 with X Pro Trigger
with 20 round ammo for $430.

Just a quick question.

1. Is fluted barrel better then just regular barrel?
2. How much it cost to get my barrel threaded?
3. What caliber I can use for my remington 700 adl?( As in like changing difference caliber).

I'll upload the picture soon.

I can't answer the second question, but a fluted barrel isn't exactly BETTER per se, it kind of depends on who you ask. To me itnmightnhelp make the barrel a little more rigid, but that's really it. Probably helps cool the barrel a little quicker too, but not by a whole lot.

As far was what caliber you could switch out to, you've got the option of just about an short action calibers. So that's .223, ,22-250, .243...alright, that's all I can think of. I just woke up, but if your google foo is sufficient, you'll be able to find a full list of short action calibers. Haha

1: a fluted barrel has more surface area for cooling, and is a little lighter than a solid contour.
2: depends on who you let do it, and what thread size you can/want to go with.
3: depends on your current action. The .308 is found in both short action and long action. If you have SA, youll have to stay with SA cartridges. If you have LA, its best to stay with LA cartridges. The .308 just happens to be kinda the midpoint of those 2.

What 700ADL did you get? Im assuming the entry-level, with the cheaper matte finish and hollow synthetic stock, and the sporter-weight barrel? There are others of course, so its kinda hard to know what ya got by just saying Rem 700 ADL.

In my opinion, the 700 action is a great platform. Lots of things a person can do with it. Lots of stock options, barrel options, can swap around from ADL, BDL, or detachable mag, depending on the stock and the bottom metal.

Just try not to skimp on the glass you put on it. Not saying that top of the line is always needed, but you need clear, dependable optics.

I think I have answered this allready---it would likely be cheaper to buy a new rifle than to change calibers. I am sort of lost here.
