http://swfa.com/SWFA-SS-10x42-Tactic...cope-P500.aspx

Try and find teh best prices on these items and you should be in the $ you wanted for the entire package. Going this route ensures you have a rifle that you will not need to upgrade for a long time. the "weak" link would be the scope but I assure you that it is a good scope. Bump your price range up $500 and teh scope gets better. These are just descriptions of the items, prices fluctuate by site. I gotta get some stuff done, I'll be back on later tonight.

Now thequestion is do you want it to be detachable magazine capable or do you want to keep it internal magazine?

The bottom metal that I pictured comes with 1 5 round magazine and you can get 10 rd magazines as well. Obviously negating this options saves money, but teh factory bottom metal sucks. those rings and base in my opinion are not negotiable, but they can be found cheaper.

I'm pretty sure I'll be going with the external mag assembly once I get the rifle. Kind of sucks that 10rd mags on that site are $95!

Hey Ponch and anybody else,

What are your feelings on the Remington 700 with the 5R Rifling compared to the Remington 700P? Is it actually worth the few hundred dollars for the 5R barrel?

Thanks,

Dean

NO

And the full name is the remington 700 5R Milspec
It's basicly the poor mans M24. If they still make them like they used to, they take rejected M24 barrels and re contour them and slap them on a SS action.

Been there done that:



I took my stock off, put it in an AICS. Tossed the trigger, installed a Jewel and had the bolt knod converted.

The 2 things you are paying for are the fact that this is a Stainless Steel barrel and action and the 5R rifled barrel.

If you like the 700P stock, the 5R does not come with the same one.
While SS is better at rust prevention, it does not have the look that a "Sniper" may want. If you were using this as a true hunting gun then I would say the SS is the way to go for weathering, but since your not... NO.
And then the barrel. The barrel is 24", unlike the 700P's 26" barrel. It also has a diffrent twist rate. The 5R has a 1:11.25 twist while the 700P has a 1:12. The 5r twist rate was designed to be the best for military 173gr M118 ammo. Both the 700P and 5R will stabalize up to 175gr ammo, the heaviest I think you will ever shoot.
As far as the "R", here ya go with that run down:
http://www.tcarms.com/technology/5r_rifling.php

Bottom line, the 5R shoots no better than a 700P. It mat withstand weather better and balance a bit diffrent since it has -2" on the end of it but there is no magic sniper dust applied on it.

Pocket the diffrence and use it toward ammo or rings and base. Your blowing your budget out of the water even considering thsi rifle.

Hey Ponch,

Was just looking at the SS10X42HD. Is it really worth the extra $500 for the HD glass? Seems like the sniper's hide people are all over this scope. Just wanted to see what your opinion was.

Thanks,

Dean

The high def is part of the coating they put on teh glass. While teh SS is a gun scope, by the time you add the $500 to the base price your in the realm of a USED as new Leupold MK4 with a straight 10x magnification and a lifetime warrenty.

The SH crew look at lots of variables to make an educated buy/don't buy comment. The main thing they look for is tracking and optical quality, both of which teh SS has or I would not have recommended it either. What you gain in optical quality you loose in flexability, if you consider haveing a fixed power a loss.
By makingthe SS a fixed power, cost can be kept down since a fixed requires less lenses than a variable and the mone can be spent on quailty of glass, and design while keeping cost low to teh end user.


The funny thing is TASCO made the SS 1st then sold it to SWFA, so in a way beware of all the claims as SWFA is a sponser of SH and well... we all know how that works.

As for me, I'm am unbiased opinion, SS are good scoped FOR THE MONEY, but I would not step into the HD realm as it takes you to a new level in price which isnt to far from others. Either get a bases SS or save your pennies till your in teh $1500 scope range (new)

Used optics is a whole other ball park.
