    All joking aside,

    It's a shame that the Remington 700 isn't very good. They're quite a handsome rifle, good slim lines. Real pity that they're dreadful.

    Yeah epic day for it, give us a yell next time you're going, shooting steel would have been an improvement from spilling brake fluid all over my kitchen floor

    What's not to like? For 1/3 the initial cost of a sako you can afford to buy one, and then add a perfect fitting stock and a match grade barrel and still have change left over to buy some reloading dies and brass and still come in cheaper than the sako's purchase price and you now have a lighter and more accurate rifle.

    Clearly is bored and put up a troll post but i take the bait . Its always good to know the "dreadful" rem 700 is very popular and is the best selling production hunting sporter in history. Still in use by some police and military snipers and for a simple, reasonable cheap rifle that been working for the last 53 years with the most calbres avaiable ,has one of the most dependable actions and is generally darn accurate not bad for something thats clearly "dreadful" for its low price and the best after market parts avaliable

    and the gunsmith fucked it up, so you have to pay an extra $1000 for another barrel. and it's never a sako.
