Remington Model 700 Magpul 6.5 Creedmoor Rifle

The Remington Model 700 Magpul 6.5 Creedmoor Rifle is a bold move from Remington in a few ways. The first being the 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge caliber. Many felt that Remington would never offer 6.5CM because it is too similar to .260 Remington. Fortunately that theory was incorrect. Remington wisely sees the writing on the wall and recognizes that 6.5 Creedmoor is not a passing fad and is poised to be a game changer in long range accuracy and power. Remington also recognizes there’s money to be made in a modern Remington Model 700 Rifle.

Remington Model 700 Magpul Hunter Stock

The next bold move is the offering of a factory rifle that features the Magpul Hunter modular chassis. First off traditional hunters may not recognize or be familiar with Magpul but AR-15, AR-10 and 308 AR shooters are. Magpul is a staple brand offering some of the best magazines and stocks in the business.  Magpul is a breath of fresh air to the bolt action rifle. The Magpul hunter stock is like a bolt action rifle version of the Magpul PRS AR stock. This is a good thing and it’s a big step away from standard Bell & Carlson synthetic rifle stocks offered by Remington for decades.

The adoption of the Magpul stock brings with it the ability for a Remington 700 factory rifle to use Accuracy International “AICS” type magazines. These are the standard among most sniper rifles and rifle chassis. Magpul AICS magazines are very inexpensive.

Why is the Remington Model 700 Magpul 6.5 Creedmoor Rifle Special

The 6.5 Creedmoor is a Hornady designed modern cartridge that was designed from the ground up as a competition cartridge. The caliber has a history of winning competitions. The long and slender design of the bullet provides greater accuracy down range and is flatter shooting than the .308 Winchester. In fact the US Military is studying the 6.5 Creedmoor as a replacement for the .308 Winchester in some applications. The 6.5 Creedmoor is ballistically superior to the .308 Winchester. This translates to a better hit probability at ranges exceeding 700 yards. The .308 is more powerful down range but the more accurate 6.5mm bullet increases the odds of actually hitting the target. Obviously as closer ranges both calibers are very accurate.

Remington 700 5R barrel is the same barrel that is used on the Remington Police and Military sniper rifles and similar. This is not an entry level economy barrel.

Note: Inevitably these types of posts turn into pissing contests and emotionally biased arguments. Here’s a few facts. .308 Winchester ammunition can be found cheaper. At this time given the intended use 6.5 Creedmoor ammo is only available in the premium lines from ammunition manufacturers. The same ammo in .308 is about the same price. 6.5CM does not have the advantage of being a NATO/Military round so there’s no bulk ammo pricing. Despite folks saying ammo availability for 6.5CM is limited that is simply not true. It’s available at the chain stores and most real gun shops. It lacks the shelf space in mom and pop gas stations. Hardly a deal breaker for most. The Remington Model 700 Magpul 6.5 Creedmoor Rifle may not appeal to all hunters and shooters but those who understand it’s purpose and abilities will be pleased.

Essentially the Remington Model 700 Magpul 6.5 Creedmoor rifle is a low recoil long range superbly accurate sniper rifle for hunters at slightly higher cost than a standard Remington Model 700.

 Huber Concepts 2 Stage Trigger

The Huber Concepts 2 Stage Trigger is somewhat of an interesting piece of hardware. When I say interesting I mean it’s very expensive. One of the most expensive triggers for bolt action rifles I have seen to date. The reviews seem to backup the hefty price tag. More interesting though is the Huber Concepts product page. It seems almost written like an infomercial focused on the Remington trigger lawsuit. Interesting approach.

Remington 700 XCR Tactical 300 Win Mag

For quite some time I have wanted to acquire a base rifle with more range and energy than the .308 Winchester/7.62 NATO. I also wanted it chambered  in a caliber fielded by the US Military. It ensures a reasonable supply of ammo at a reasonable price. I had briefly considered the .338LM  but in reality it’s way more gun than anywhere I can shoot would allow. The ammunition is also still at a premium price. Based on these factors I have settled on a Remington 700 XCR Tactical chambered in 300 Win Mag. This Remington 700 XCR Tactical will go through a few changes over the next 12 months. Of course it will be shot as is but look forward to some interesting if not motivating changes.

Remington 700 XCR Tactical Rifles offer the perfect solution for long-range precision shooters. A long-time favorite of both the military and tactical police units, the Model 700 offers the legendary accuracy and unfailing performance youíve come to expect. Our Model 700 XCR Long Range Tactical Rifle, features a 40-X externally adjustable trigger and 416 stainless steel barreled action with Black TriNyte PVD coating, providing a diamond-hard layer of defense against the elements.

The barrel features wide tactical-style barrel fluting for rapid cooling.

TRIGGERTECH REMINGTON 700 DROP IN TRIGGER

TRIGGERTECH REMINGTON 700 DROP IN TRIGGER

The TRIGGERTECH REMINGTON 700 DROP IN TRIGGER uses Frictionless Release Technology, or FRT™, which provides a crisp, precise and zero creep release. Utilizing true rolling resistance eliminates the drawbacks associated with sliding friction, resulting in the best release possible. The trigger is fully adjustable from 1.5-4lb in positive click indicating 1 oz increments, and can be adjusted without removing from rifle.

  • Frictionless Release Technology (FRT™)
  • Single Stage Zero Creep release
  • Adjustable from 1.5-4 lb
  • Safety Integrated with bolt release
  • Stainless Steel Parts
  • Lubrication Free
  • Stainless Steel Components
  • Aluminum, T7075, anodized black housings

For the first time, we have solved the problem of sliding friction and its negative effect on trigger feel. Since the beginning of trigger design, manufacturers have been trying to dampen the negative effects of sliding friction. This kind of friction causes heavy pull weights and creep – both of these characteristics decrease accuracy and user feel. We have successfully introduced a patent pending free-floating roller in the trigger system that sits between the latch/trigger and the sear. Our Frictionless Release Technology™ rids the trigger of meaningful friction, eliminating creep and heavy pull weights. This drastically increases accuracy and overall user feel.
In addition, there is no wear between the critical surfaces of the release. Theoretically, these triggers can be shot forever without any degradation of the key release surfaces.

Timney 510 Thin Trigger with Safety

Timney 510 Thin Trigger

Timney 510 Thin Trigger

Timney 510 THIN Trigger

In Phoenix Arizona there is some of the nicest and friendliest people in the shooting community. These people prove on a daily basis that good old fashioned customer service is in fact alive and well. These people are within the walls of company called Timney Triggers in Phoenix Arizona. The Timney Triggers company has been in the  “Trigger Business” probably longer than anyone else, since 1946. They got their start making aftermarket triggers for Mauser, Springfield and Enfield Rifles. Today they manufacture triggers for just about every common rifle as well as some surprises like SCAR Rifles and IWI Tavor.

Recently Timney subtly announced you can throw away the Remington factory X-Mark Pro trigger and drop in the new Timney 510 Thin Remington 700 Trigger. The trigger housing  is heat treated steel and features a trigger blocking safety. The 3 pound trigger pull model is available in left and right had versions with black or nickel finish.

 

Timney’s Description

The Timney 510 THIN trigger is 1/4″ in width and comes with a safety that blocks the trigger, not the sear. No screws, drilling, or tapping required.

The Model 510 THIN will bring a whole new realm of accuracy to your Remington rifle, Remington 700 Clone Action. Each trigger is geometrically identical with tolerances less than .0005”. adjustable from 1.5 to 4 lbs.

How is the Timney Remington 700 trigger different from the factory trigger? There are two major differences. The first is that the trigger and sear in the Timney Trigger Group is made from a solid block of heat treated steel, not casted nor metal injected, allow for closer tolerance and precision.

The second difference is that our 510 trigger comes with a trigger blocking safety; that means there’s no way to move the trigger when it’s on safe, so when you take it off safe the trigger stays in the same position it started from.
