Default School me on the Remington 700 milspec 5R

I was thinking about getting a Remington 700 Milspec 5R because it looks awesome to shoot. I have been wanting to get a Rem 700 in 308 for some time now and I thought I might get one before the year is out. I have looked at the tactical, the police and the sps model but I think that the 5R seems to be the one Iím most interested in.

I was wondering if anyone has owned one and what was your experience with the 5R? Also I was wondering as to where would be the best place I could find one in Southern CA. Any information would be helpful and greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Also suggestions for glass for the 5R would be greatly appreciated .

Save your money. You can get the same out of a Savage 10FBLE in a .308. I'm not knocking Remington, they are really good quality. I have both.

I will look into these other suggestions and see what I find. I’m getting the impression I may get more “bang for my buck” with some of these other suggestions and I’m cool with that.

it's just some rifles I found via google search....

i WISH I can afford one of those.... the Sako would be my pick
the way it was designed is just simply amazing... not to mention the bipod design is flawless

Okay, you are on the right track for "more bang for your buck". If you are just starting out and wanting a real good rifle for a reasonable price my suggestion would be for the Savage. Not because I have one its because I was once in your place. Not all that long ago I bought the Model 700 VTR Desert RECON. Comparing it with my reloads and factory about two months ago, I kicked myself in the butt. It was really no difference on accuracy to my Savage 10FPLE. So I sold the Rem and broke even, thank goodness.

I have shot matches with my Savage and done well. Hell, I'm not no olympian.

Accuracy is not always the rifle, its the nut behind the stock.

Not at all.

It came to me at my 1st M1 Garand Match many moons ago by a WWII, Korean War and Viet Nam vet when I was having some minor rooky issues with my M1 Garand. Enjoy it but, don't abuse it.

Savages don't need truing or gunsmiths to work on them.
They are perfect just as they are sold.
You should probably get a savage...

Maybe factory federal gold medal match 175 loads are too hot for that rifle.
You could be on to something there...
