For a police sniper who's shots are within 200 yards. I would get a Remington Model 700 police (Now the XCR) in 223. The 223 will do the job just fine. There is really no need to be lobbing 168gr bullets for only 100 to 200 yard shots. Or you could get the Rem M700 VSF in 223 or 308.

I myself would stay the hell away from that 70 VTR it has that crappy injection molded plastic stock that comes on the SPS. I would make sure to get a rifle with a durable stock. That VTR stock is not durable at all.

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). :cool:
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.
