I recently purchased a used, but well taken care of rifle of this make chambered in .338 Win Mag. Couldn't pass the price up. Does anyone know when these rifles were manufactured until and when they started? I know mine was made in 1993. I always wanted to get a Rem 700, but from back from when they weren't as questionable as the new ones are today (not all models, but particularly the cheaper ones). I put a Leupold base and rings on it with a Leupold 2-7x on it and fed it some Federal 250 grain Nosler Partitions at the range last week and wow is it accurate. Yeah, it's too big for 99% of any hunting in the U.S., especially PA deer hunts, but I plan on using it for most bear and deer hunts next fall and maybe try a red tag hunt soon. Anyone a fellow owner of this model (any caliber)? Just can't find much manufacturing history on it from Remington. Thanks.
