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.....
