Madison, NC – Remington Arms Company is excited to announce the 10th anniversary of AcuSport’s exclusive Model 700 with 5-R Rifling chambered in the widely popular 308 Win. (AcuSport Item # 9663).
“Offering this Model 700 for ten years is a testimony to the popularity and acceptance by shooters wanting to own an exceptionally accurate rifle at a reasonable price,” states AcuSport Category Manager, Dave Regula. At the core of the 700 with 5-R Rifling is the machined stainless steel, cylindrical Model 700 receiver design ensuring uniformity, strength and solid bedding area. Unique to this precision rifle is the 24-inch stainless steel, heavy barrel featuring 5-R Tactical Rifling – the same hammer-forged barrel used on the M-24 sniper rifles.
The 5-R Rifling barrel features five lands with a right hand twist which allows for less bearing surface on the bullet for slightly increased velocity. As a result of less bullet drag, copper fouling in the bore is reduced ensuring long-term accuracy and consistency. The barrel is offered with a 110 target-style crown and a 1 in 11.25-inch twist.
The rock-solid barreled action is full-length, aluminum bedded into a well-designed H-S Precision stock for enhanced stability and shot-to-shot consistency. Add Remington’s X-Mark Pro® externally adjustable trigger, designed to “break-like-glass” and set at 3 ½ pounds from the factory, and this rifle delivers surgical-like accuracy.
Additional versions of the Model 700 with 5-R Rifling are also available exclusively from AcuSport chambered in 223 Remington with 1 in 9 inch twist (AcuSport Item #5504) and 300 Win Mag with 1 in 10 inch rate of twist (AcuSport Item #5505). Models are offered in all three calibers with threaded barrels to allow the attachment of flash hiders as well as silencers. They include the 308 (AcuSport Item #5200R), the .223 (AcuSport Item #5507) and the .300Win Mag (AcuSport Item #85508).
