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.

Remington Ultimate Sheep Rifle 6.5 Creedmoor

Since I began being interested in the 6.5 Creedmoor Caliber I have read over and over that because Remington offers .260 they will never offer a 6.5 Creedmoor chambered rifle. Fortunately for us not only is Remington offering 6.5 Creedmoor they have released two Model 700 rifles at the opposite ends of the price spectrum. The subject of this post is the high end offering from the Remington Custom Shop referred to as the Remington Ultimate Sheep Rifle.
Remington Ultimate Sheep Rifle Build Description

The Genesis of a Brainstorm

June 03, 2017 – How the plan for the project was hatched – It started with a simple question: “What would the ultimate sheep rifle look like?” Now, through an unprecedented collaboration of the foremost high-country authorities, that question will be answered. The Remington Custom Shop. KUIU. Barnes Bullets. Leupold Optics. We’re joining forces to build the superlative mountain rifle—a gun unlike anything ever built.

As a veteran high-country hunter, KUIU founder Jason Hairston is on a never-ending search for gear that will do three things: shave weight from his load, increase his effectiveness on the hunt, and stand up to some of the harshest terrain and most unpredictable conditions on Earth.

With Hairston’s input, gleaned from years of experience, along with the peerless technical expertise of the Remington Custom Shop’s gun makers, Barnes’ ballisticians, and Leupold’s optics engineers, we will design and craft the Ultimate Sheep Rifle. And you’ll have a front-row seat to the action.

Through postings on this blog, a series of behind-the-scenes videos, and regular updates on Remington’s Facebook and Instagram accounts, we’re pulling back the curtain on the build and granting total access to the process every step of the way.

Remington Ultimate Sheep Rifle

If there’s a universal mantra of any back country adventure—be it hunting, camping, mountaineering, or skiing—it’s “ounces become pounds.” That is to say, when you start making concessions for a few extra ounces here and there in the gear you carry, soon you’re hauling extra pounds. In the backcountry, extra pounds lead to fatigue and exhaustion, which ultimately can compromise a hunt.

Step 1: Choosing the Remington Ultimate Sheep Rifle Components

Building the lightest and strongest rifle possible

In March, KUIU founder Jason Hairston visited the Remington Custom Shop in Sturgis, South Dakota, where we presented him with a number of options for each component that will comprise the Ultimate Sheep Rifle. We discussed the pros and cons of each with regards to Hairston’s wants and needs for the gun. After hours of deliberation, here’s where we landed.

Remington Ultimate Sheep Rifle Action –  Remington 700 Titanium; 8 oz.

Hairston opted for a titanium Model 700 action in 6.5 Creedmoor (more on the caliber choice in a future post). Remington’s custom titanium actions are so precisely machined, to such tight tolerances, that secondary blueprinting—a step required of nearly any factory action—is not necessary. The bolt will feature an M-16 extractor and dual ejectors, as well as a Badger Ordnance Mini Knob.

Remington Ultimate Sheep Rifle Stock – Manners EH8; 1 lb. 6.4 oz.

We showed Hairston a number of stock choices, including a few with comb and length-of-pull adjustability. In the end, this sleek, simple Manners won out. Like all Elite Hunter stocks, the EH8 has a carbon-fiber shell and a super-light fill. It’s compact and features a traditional straight grip with minimal palm swell. Designed specifically for Model 7 and 700 short actions, it’ll get a hand-laid epoxy bedding job for a rock-solid foundation. Scalpel Arms in Dallas, Texas, will apply a custom KUIU Vias paint job.

Remington Ultimate Sheep Rifle Barrel – Proof Research Premium Match Grade Stainless (Sendero Light contour); 2 lb. 10.4 oz. (unchambered)

Unmatched strength and durability for minimal weight. That’s the hallmark of Proof Research’s carbon-wrapped steel barrels. Oh, and the accuracy isn’t too shabby, either. We considered a super-lightweight barrel with a sporter contour, but opted for the added rigidity and strength of the Sendero Light. At 20 inches in length with a 1-in-8 twist, we went as short (and therefore lightweight) as possible without giving up any accuracy. The muzzle will be threaded for a brake.

Remington Ultimate Sheep Rifle Trigger – Timney Remington 700 (model no. 510); 1.6 ounces

Made from a solid block of heat-treated steel, Timney’s Remington 700 trigger features a pull weight is factory-set at a crisp 3 pounds with absolutely zero take-up.

Rounding out the rest of the components are an aluminum floor plate and trigger guard, a titanium recoil lug, an aluminum firing pin, and an aluminum Atlas bipod rail. All the metal work will be Cerakoted for supreme protection against the elements. Before the scope and bipod are added, the rifle will weigh right around 5 ½ pounds and will represent the pinnacle of the strength-to-weight ideal.

Whats better than a stable, accurate quality bolt action rifle that uses AR-15 or 308 AR/AR 308 magazines? I will tell you what is. The same rifle with a MDT LSS chassis. That rifle is the Mossberg MVP LC (Light Chassis). Modular Driven Technologies is soon to be a household name among rifle shooters. Mark my words.

The Mossberg MVP LC combines the accurate MVP Rifle Platform with a lightweight MDT LSS Chassis, Magpul Stock, and an optional Vortex Optics Viper HS-T Rifle Scope.

Teamed with our Cadex designed 1.300” heavy barrel straight taper with barrel band and threaded muzzle for slip on suppressor or muzzle brake. All Cadex Kraken barrels are Match Grade, Single Point cut, 5R rifling with an optimized twist rate.
