Ok, now that I have decided on a good precision rifle, the Remington 700 5R, 24", 11.25 twist, in SS, does anyone know who has one in S. Cal. Are these like special orders or are they usually available at local stores?

These are made in limited production. I believe you will need to search nationwide to find one in stock. I found a couple about 6 months ago when I was deciding between the 5R and the LTR. I eventually chose the LTR, but I found both in South Dakota.

Why did you decide on the LTR?

Check www.precisionarms.com I bought mine there a year ago. Last time I was there a month ago I think he had one or two. He's in Escondido, Ca. which is North County San Diego.

Why did you decide on the LTR?

Because I wanted it for more than just long distance shooting at the range. The LTR is just as accurate (for most of the distances I will be shooting), it's easier to wield (shorter barrel) and it's lighter to carry.
