I purchased one of these a year ago as a project gun, something capable and highly upgradeable. This rifle is easily the best shooting rifle i have fired in my life. accuracy is insanely tight. I have put all kinds of .308 / 7.62 ammo through it with no problems. at the price impact is asking, this is a steal of a rifle. The aftermarket for Remington 700 series is HUGE so accurizing and customizing one of these is easy. Though with the accuracy I'm getting out of the stock rifle, most people would easily be able to hunt and paper punch with equal ease. well worth the money, even at twice the price.
