Well, the 700 is the most popular, but it definitely is not the best platform out there. That aside, a decent smith can make anything shoot well enough to hit the magic triangle within a given green light limit.

Again, anything COULD do the job, but when the time comes to justify what you did, or if something goes awry, you want to be able to rely on the industry Standard. Right now, .308 is the police and SWAT Standard bolt gun round and the FBI HRT team is going with 7mm Mag.

Default Listen to me!!!

Hey bud, I'm retired Marine scout spotter and please take my word on this... the r700 is the best rifle on the market. It's acurate, it's fast, and with the right ammunition (ill balistic tip) can hit anything at any range up to and beyond 1250. (1760 is a mile).

As everyone knows I am a remington fanboy all the way. But to say the Remington is the BEST rifle out there is just stupid and only an internet know it all poser would say so.

malarky why don't you show some proof that you are a scout sniper? DD 215 or some form of proof like grad cert from scout sniper school.

I would sure like to see what criteria you are judging rifle platforms on.

Remington is FAR from being the best platform given any recognized shooting criteria.

They can be MADE to shoot dimes, but out of the box? Forgetaboutit! There are a dozen rifle platforms better.....

1250 yards?? You have to be delusional to think that a .308 is effective at that range. That would be such a moonshot, given standard ballistics, that the round itself would be huffing and puffing it's way into the target, provided you used one of the three wishes the Genie gave you to actually HIT something at that range with the round.

Another Internetz is Sirrus Bidness fallacy.....

Personally I would get a Sako TRG-22 in .308. As far as I know it's the only commercially produced rifle guaranteed to place 5 rounds within .5" at 100 yds. But for that guarantee you WILL pay (about $2500)
