View Full Version : Remington 700 LV SF

January 25, 2006, 01:10 PM
I'm shopping for a varmit gun/paper puncher and like the looks of the Rem Light Varmit model. Can anyone advise on their experience with the accuracy of this rifle. The literature says it is pillar bedded while the Rem VS SF II speaks of aluminum block bedding. How do these two models compare to each other accuracy wise?

RS, I have owned two heavy barrelled remingtons- a VS and an LTR and trialed various sniper varients of the 700 system, like the M21 ( ?) ...anyhoo, I can say that they are a whole lot of rifle for the money. As a sweeping generalisation they shoot better than most things that cost half as much again. I havent used the Light varient but if you are varmint killing, go for the heavy barrelled varient. They are a pain to carry, but they do shoot better. My LTR shoots like a dream , and is a consistantly shoots around .6 MOA. With load development, I am sure it will do better.
