Remington’s New Precision Chassis Rifle

It is in vogue these days for rifle making companies to produce a specimen of rifle categorized as a long range precision shooting platform. Many of these rifles are now classified as “shooting systems”, which offer multiple options for configuration. Remington has just joined the foray into the bolt action precision rifle offerings. Theirs will be marketed as the Model 700 PCR, which stands for Precision Chassis Rifle. It is being introduced this week in Las Vegas at the annual SHOT Show or trade show known as the Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show for the firearms industry, retail dealers, and the outdoors media. I have inspected most all the brands and models currently on the market, and without bias I can say this new Remington has some of the cleanest lines of any rifle of this type. I think Remington was wise to see what the market offered, then upped the ante with their 700 PCR. The barrel is 24-inches in length with 5R rifling made of carbon steel with an appropriate twist to accommodate each chambering which includes the .260 Remington, 6.5 Creedmoor, and the .308 Winchester. The rifle’s accuracy is verified via Remington’s CATS System, or Computer Aided Targeting System before it is shipped for sale to the consumer. The Remington PCR’s have a 5-round Magpul detachable magazine.
