I just picked up one of these off of Gunbroker. I was not even
aware that Remington made this rifle. Looks like the berries though.
HS stock, floor plate, fluted barrel, 7.5 pounds. Black, of course.
I wasn't really looking for a new bolt gun, but I just couldn't pass on it
with 8 pounds of H322, 500 new SSA brass cases, and a bunch of .277 bullets
I've been collecting !

Any of you guys have one of these rifles ? Your experience with it ?

thanks, Chris

Nice rig and nice hog ! He looks very, very dead.

Do you handload for your rifle ? What accuracy level
have you been getting with your rifle ?

Yes I do handload, had to, the only ammo i could get when i got it, was factory rem 115gr mc, when i first got the rifle couldnt even get new brass :( I've reloaded the, speer 90 & 100gr hp, sierra 110gr ph, barnes 110gr tsx & 120gr BS, hornady 110 v max and the 116gr taipan hp. The best accuracy has been with the sierra 110gr ph, but all the others have given have given me excellent results.Have a look here viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2309

WHOA !

All that's showing on those targets is a little wind. Dang fine
shooting. I hope mine has that kind of accuracy potential.

Have you taken any speed readings ?

thanks! Chris

Great rifles! Shame that Remington quit making them. I finally got mine together and made a trip to the range. I am very pleased with the entire setup. It has been quite some time since I shot a scoped rifle so its going to take a bit more practice on my part to be able to reach the full potential of this rifle. It'll be fun getting the ole' skills back to where they should be.

Re: M700 Police Tactical 6.8SPC with 20 inch barrel ??

I took the M700 Police Tactical out for it's trial run today.
I just shot groups at 50 yards, but I think this rifle is one
of the most accurate I have ever owned.

There are 4 shots in the one hole and I leaked one out a
little to the left. I had a number of groups just like this one.
Shot 30.5 grains of 748 with the 130 grain Nosler Solid Base
just as tight.

I think this is going to be a great hunting rifle. Handles
beautifully, perfect weight, and has all the power I need.
To me, it's the best part of a .270 Winchester.

:)

Great shooting! Looks like a keeper. What kind of velocity are you getting from those 130 gr. Noslers?
