700 VTR

I am looking to purchase a 700 VTR Remington and was wondering if anyone owns or has shot one. I have heard the muzzle brake is unneccessary but it is on every caliber. Anyones opinions or thought would be appreciated.

Re: 700 VTR

I had one in 22-250 for a while. Not my cup of tea. I am a reloader and never did find anything that grouped well enough to impress me. I will say it shot fairly well with the cheap stock it came with, until I decided to free float the barrel. The groups opened up then. Next I tried bedding it in an HS Precision stock, it also didn't shoot well in that configuration. Oh and yes the muzzle brake is not needed.

Re: 700 VTR

I have a 22-250 VTR and will shoot 1 ragged hole at 100, at 200 you can cover 5 with a quarter. being 1 in 14 it likes 52 gr. BTHP Match, If I shoot 55 gr anything groups go to 1 inch at a 100 yds. Yes the muzzle break is not needed on that caliber and some of my buddies say it's loud, I must be used to it,my 338 win mag and 300 win mag have brakes on them too.

Re: 700 VTR

If you shoot the barrel out, where will you find a replacement?

Re: 700 VTR

The stock will accept a round barrel. So no worries, Twist out the old and twist in the new, Have changed many Rem. 700 pipes in my day.

Re: 700 VTR

Muzzle brake is LOUD-- MUST hunt with ear plugs. Shoots well.

Crazy as it is, I always wear hearing protection with this gun. The ear plugs don't hinder me hunting yotes. Shooting them is my issue
