The Remington 700P is a very nice sniper rifle for the money. This “Entry Level” rifle is quite capable of shooting .5 MOA right out of the box (.75 MOA is more common). This rifle has all the right features for the right price. It uses a HS Precision stock with palm swells and an aluminum bedding block. The actual action and barrel are the same that are used on Remingtons varmint rifles, with the difference mainly in the stock. Packaged combinations, known as the 700P Tactical Weapons System (TWS) can be bought from the factory and includes a carrying case, Harris Bi-Pod and a Leupold Veri-X III 3.5-10x Tactical Scope with Duplex reticle. The package has some other goodies also.

The 700P (and its variants) have come to be the standard for police agencies. Remington has been introducing new models also, including the LTR and others. The LTR was designed as a lighter weight, compact tactical rifle for urban situations. It has a 20″ fluted barrel and a slimmed down stock. Accuracy is about the same as the standard 700P, but you will lose some velocity with the shorter barrel. Technically, Remington only sells them to law enforcement, but the rifles are available through various distributors to civilians.

Update: The 700P has been modernized and we are will have a full review soon.

Hi, do you have chance to test recent 5r versions of 700p and 700 ltr?
Are they still good shooters?
Thanks

They are good shooters, but I don’t know if they are as good as the originals. We have a new 700P 5R here for review, but that writeup is a few months out.

Mel,
I purchased a LTR 5R in .308 last year. It’s mounted with a Primary arms 4-14X44 Orion Reticle FFP scope with a GGG-1199 Accucam QD 30mm intergral ring base which is shared with a Remington 788 in .223. The reticle is for .308/.223/30-06. The scope repeats well on both rifles. I live in South Dakota and I’m lucky to have access to a 600 yard range. I’ve been hunting and shooting most of my 70 years and consider myself a average shot. Both rifles are sighted at 100 yards and hitting steel targets with ease at 400 yards and planning to shoot 600 yards weather next outing depending on the wind. I really enjoy shooting the LTR and have shoot 500 + rounds with a stock rifle using sand bags and factory trigger setting.

I purchased an LTR this week. After 15 years as a police sniper on SWAT, it was time to buy my own. I like the more compact LIGHTER LTR. I deployed for years with the 700P and also the DPMS SASS. I shot today for the first time. Three .5 groups consistently from 100 yards bench with a Harris bipod and pinch bag. Anxious to see how it settles down with break in and cleaning. As of now, impressed.
