Our Assessment: The Remington 700 needs no introduction. It has been one of the most popular bolt action rifles in America for decades, seeing use in target shooting, hunting, and in law enforcement and has been produced in just about any caliber and configuration you could think of. This BDL is chambered for the powerful .300 Winchester Magnum cartridge and has a 24” barrel. This should be a great rifle to take target shooting or hunting and hitting your mark should be no problem once you install either a rear iron sight on the barrel, an aperture peep sight on the tapped receiver, or a scope.
