Show and tell time!!!

Post a photo of your Remington 700. Show us models far and wide. Show us your customization including stocks, paint jobs, barrel, or what ever else you can think of. End it with a little description of all the accessories you have placed on the rifle, and what you use it for. If you use it for tagets, tell us your longest shot. If you use it for hunting, tell us about your best kill with the rifle.

I'll start. I have a Remington Model 700 SPS Varmint chambered in .308 (wow, thats a mouth full), with a Nikon 4.5x14x40 Buckmaster mil-dot scope. Other than that it is stock. Just got the rifle by the way.

Where's your 700? If you're gonna start a thread asking for pics of a specific model rifle, just seems proper to start it off with pics of your own.

Ishyid: Nice rifle! What is the ammo holder you have on the buttstock?

Mines's a Remington 5R (.308) in an AICS stock, Sightron SIII 6x25x50 LRMD, Anti-cant spirit level, Burris Signature Zee rings, Burris 2-piece steel base, Rifle Basix trigger, Harris bipod. Only work I've had done is the lugs got lapped. No camo or 'tacticool' goodies etc because I only use it for 1000 yard F-TR competition.

brfman, I'm not sure what the brand name of the bullet holder thingy, but I picked it up at a local gun store for like $7. You can go on buds guns, and look under the different types of holsters and they have some there.

I like your rifle. A bipod is going to be my next investment.

Mine is a SPS-V with a Bell & Carlson A2 Medalist stock and pentax 4-12x40 gameseeker, got it about two weeks ago and am still waiting for the snow to melt so I can go break it in, hopefully thursday will be the day. My next purchase will be a good bipod followed by a Jewel trigger and better glass, for now though I think it will do just fine at takin out some yotes.

That is one extremely nice rig Mike!


January 14, 2010, 03:54 PM
Thanks Oly. It is a nice shooter, but a little heavier than my carbon composite barreled Spartan MK100A 338 Lapua Magnum rifle is which weighs 12.6 lbs with a sling, bipod, 5 rounds in the magazine and one in the chamber.

January 14, 2010, 04:38 PM
I would hate to know how much you have into that gun but it looks like a nice shooter

January 14, 2010, 04:45 PM
Holy cow. You guys are serious about this hobby. I can only imagine how much $$$ you've got in some of those guns.


January 14, 2010, 05:37 PM
You wanna dance, you gotta pay the band. You wanna borrow, you gotta pay the man! (I wish this was my line but I stole it from Rocky Balboa :D)

Thanks Oly. It is a nice shooter, but a little heavier than my carbon composite barreled Spartan MK100A 338 Lapua Magnum rifle is which weighs 12.6 lbs with a sling, bipod, 5 rounds in the magazine and one in the chamber.

That's an amazing weight for the full rig. Very nice!

Well here they are my two 700's and i love each one of these guns. One of them is a 7mm Rem mag (the silver one) and the other is a 30-06 the (blued one). On my 7mm i mounted a 4.5x 14 mueller and on the 30-06 i got a whinchester 3x 9 for the brush. Killed deer with both these guns and wouldnt ever trade them for the world.

Pics didnt work the first time they will be up in a minute



sorry that you have to go to the website but i am having trouble with loading pics on the blog

Here's my little deer gun.

It's the CDL stainless fluted limited edition in .260 Rem.

I have the Bushnell Elite 6500 2.5-16X40 on it and lightened the trigger a bit but otherwise stock. Pretty soft shooter.


January 14, 2010, 10:09 PM
i recommend free floating the barrel... its very easy to do and i bet if you try to run a dollar between the stock and the barrel it will get stuck about 2 inches from the from of the stock. Just use a dowle and some sand paper and then seal it back up with some poly.

January 14, 2010, 10:16 PM
Mine are both basic, no frills hunting rigs.


Bottom is 700ADL .243 Win, Middle is 700ADL .30-06 Springfield, Top is a Ruger 77MkII in .308 Win that just had to sneak into the pic :D.

All are wearing Nikon 3-9x40 Prostaff's with BDC.

January 14, 2010, 10:17 PM
Thanks Eddy.

I did that to my CZ453. I don't know if it helped much, though.

You've got my curiosity up so I'm going to have to check it out, now.

Can I borrow a dollar? ;)

My Remington 700 CDL 35 Whelen. :cool:


January 14, 2010, 10:49 PM

My Remington 700 CDL 35 Whelen.

Oooooo, me like.

January 20, 2010, 02:24 PM
OK I'll play.



Top is 30-338 Win. In process of devoloping loads now.

Middle is Sendero in 7mm STW.

Bottom is Alaskan Ti in .280. Love the light weight and the fluted bolt is a different touch.

This thread was posted a month too early. My first R700 is being put together right now.

January 20, 2010, 04:17 PM
Post when you get it.

My three 700s. One with the groundhog is my .243, cryoed, glass bedded, and converted from ADL to BDL configuration. Have killed thousands (literally) of groundhogs, a couple deer and a couple turkeys with this rifle. One with the coyote is my .270, started life as a 700 laminated stainless Mountain rifle. Took the laminated stock off and put it on my .35 Whelen, which is the rifle pictured with the muskox. My .35 Whelen was a factory BDL, I swapped the BDL stock for the laminated mountain rifle stock off the .270. I have killed 8 different species of big game with the Whelen, it is my favorite hunting rifle.
