Awesome rifle out of the Box! I took my new Remington 700 5R 24in SS 308 out for the first time today for some break-in rounds. I shot two 5 round groups at 100 yards. Each shot was fired 3-5 minutes apart due to break-in cleaning between each round. Even with that being the case, I was able to produce a groups of .51 MOA and .73 MOA. The rifle is very well balanced and the action mounts firmly into the HS precision stock. The trigger however, is a little heavy. Overall, I am very happy with the results. I am so glad I chose the 5R.

4.5 stars, really.... Awesome platform for 308. The action and barrel alone are worth the price. I was getting ~1MOA with Hornady Steel Match during my break-in process, and dropped to 0.8MOA with Federal GM308M2 175gr. Changed out the trigger for a Timney 510 and immediately saw 0.5MOA groups with the same GM308M2 factory ammo. Took it out to the long range and got first-shot hits at 500, 600, and 750 yards (used Strelok Pro for doping). First shot at 1000yd kicked up dirt right near the target but I didn't have a spotter to verify hits after that. No doubt this rifle can perform at 1000yd. Only things holding this back from a perfect, out-of-the-box, factory rifle are: 1) the X-Mark trigger. I was able to get 0.8MOA with the factory trigger but I could definitely feel it affecting my accuracy just by how much I had to pull, even at the lowest setting. The trigger itself is decent - very minimal creep and breaks nicely - it's just heavy for precision work. 2) the particular H.S. stock it comes in doesn't have an easily modified buttpad. It's a very thin strip of rubber fixed on with epoxy; no mounting screws so you can't just swap it out. I wanted to increase the length of pull on mine so this was a frustration point for me. I've since gotten used to the stock though. All together this is a really great rifle, especially for a factory production firearm. Looking forward to seeing what it can do with handloads. Very happy with it and highly recommended for shooting 308.

I have bough more guns from Bud's than I care to remember. I always look to them first; best prices and great service. Have never had an issue. This is my second Remington 5R rifle...the first being in 300 wm. Accuracy is incredible for a box factory rifle. I have changed to McMillan stock and Timney trigger and I'm already getting consistent 1/2 moa groups...and I have not even bedded the stock yet. However, the HS stocks are good to go, I just prefer the McMillan. If you are looking for a near custom rifle with fantastic out of the box accuracy potential (as long as you do your part in shooting) then this is it right here. I have noticed a big difference in cleaning these 5R barrels vs Remington's standard cut rifling. There is quite a bit less fouling and they clean up faster. I have not chrono'd this one yet but will see how the speeds compare to my other Remington Varmint. I am expecting a little bit more velocity with the 5R. Loves the 175 gr bullets and shooting the 168's very well to. Can't go wrong with Buds or the 5R.

After doing a lot of research I bought this rifle. I have to say I am not disappointed in the least. This rifle shoots great out of the box. It shoots sub MOA at 100 yds 200 yds and 300 yds. Our range does not go past 300 yds ... so I have not tried any longer distances yet. If you want a great factory rifle that is accurate and fun to shoot, then this is it. The only thing I changed on mine was the trigger. I went with a Timney Calvin Elite, and could not be happier. Buds had the best price, especially with free shipping!!!

Just took delivery of this gun today and, although I haven't shot it yet, it is amazing! I love the HS Precision stock and the varmint contoured barrel. Action is nice and smooth right out of the box. In fact, I think it feels as good or better than my dad's 30+ year old 700 BDL. Bud's has the best price on this gun I've seen. I can't wait to get this thing to the range!

The X-Mark Pro trigger is JUNK !!! Could not adjust lower than 6 # pull . Replaced it with a Timney trigger , adjusted to slightly over 2 # , great trigger . However , the rifle is truly something to behold , 200 yard groups routinely average 1/2" . 700 yard groups are 2 " . It maintains this level of accuracy shot after shot , even after I have not cleaned the bore in more than 300 shots . The action is SMOOTH ! GREAT RIFLE and Great Store.
