    Has anyone seen/shot the triangular barrel that Remingtons putting on a model of the 700? Any thoughts about this style barrel? Im thinking about picking one up, but Im not sure about the triangle shape compared to the normal circular style barrel.

    It is nothing more than a gimmick to make you spend more money on a rifle that looks like some 2 year old designed it. If I could I would kick remington's designers in the nuts for that crap right there. Seen a fee of them and the ones I seen on the range were shooting like shot guns no matter what they were shooting.

    They don't seem to like it much. I haven't shot it but I wouldn't sacrifice accuracy for looks, if you do like the looks of it. I'm not a fan.

    The trianglular shape is just a shape-it means it's no more inherently accurate than other shapes. In my opinion it's just a gimmick to attract more buyers.

    1) This forum DOES NOT endorse Forum Raids.... :cool:

    2) I have a custom cut, triangle, .308 Fedral Gold Medal Match Chamber Krieger Barrel on my .308 rig that is getting taken off this summer in place of a bull barrel, Mike Rock 5r Barrel - if anyone wants the take off, let me know, I will make you a hell of a deal. :rolleyes:

    The triangular barrel is a complete waste of time and money; it doesn't affect performance at all; if it did, all of the other manufacturers would be making their rifles with triangle barrels as well. I can't beleive they even bothered design this barrel for the model 700. It looks extremely stupid too!
