Tired of the 6.5 Creedmoor Yet?… Now in 6.5 Creedmoor the Remington Model 700 Magpul

700 Magpul

Magpul, being the popular company that they are, gets their products placed on quite a few factory firearms. Remington is in that boat having created the Model 700 Magpul. Initially only offered in .260 Remington and .308 Winchester, you can now add one to your safe chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor as well.

The MSRP is in line with the two previous calibers at $1,175 a rifle. The specs between the calibers are completely identical except for the twist rates which is not surprising. Both the .260 Remington and 6.5 Creedmoor utilize a 1:8″ twist while the .308 Winchester has a 1:10″ twist rate.

Otherwise, they all share a black cerakote finish, a 5-round detachable Magpul magazine is a nice convenience, and the tactical bolt handle makes for easy action manipulation as well.

The threaded barrel allows for your choice of muzzle brake, flash hider or preferred silencer.

The Magpul Hunter stock is likely the biggest draw or curb appeal for most consumers to this rifle. You can modify the length-of-pull to your liking as well as the comb height. It gives the rifle a more personal feeling and a more proper eye placement when staring through a scope.

Being that it is a Model 700, you can of course expect the X-Mark Pro externally adjustable trigger. A pretty love or hate feature, but it is the bread ‘n butter of all 700s.

At this moment, Remington lists the Model 700 Magpul in 6.5 Creedmoor as “unavailable” on their website, but it should be coming down the pipeline considering it is being publicized.

The outdoors, fitness and anything related to firearms are my passions. I am a S&W Armorer, Glock Armorer, reloader and am coping with an addiction to classic S&W and Colt revolvers (by buying more revolvers). I’ve been a guest writer for Sierra Bullets and love long walks to the gun range.

    Gibe 6mm Creedmoor pls. Also, would a Surefire 6.8SPC suppressor work on a 6.5 Creedmoor or would it be too harsh on it?

    • Raptor Fred

      Depends on the blast baffle. And the length of your 6mm Creed barrel. The first 6.8 cans were bored out 556 cans. Internal volume and construction are a big thing when dealing with reduced bore size and increased propellant charges. It would not be optimal.

    • Haulin’ Oats

      Just go with a can rated for 300 win mag or 338 lapua and all is well.

      A suggestion along those lines might be something from Sig Sauer.

      • Anonymoose

        Meh. I’m trying to come up with an idea to save weight while improving suppression capability here!

        • Haulin’ Oats

          SIG WSRD762Ti-10 is rated for 300win mag and weighs 13oz.

          • Anonymoose

            Oh wow. Never mind then.

          • Haulin’ Oats

            The now discontinued 5.56 direct thread version of that same suppressor weighs in at 9oz.

    Although I like the 6.5 Creedmoor, I am not about a Remington, especially after hearing some of the QC blues they are having. Bergara’s BMP or HMR, SIGN ME UP!!!

  • mig1nc

    Trying to compete with the Ruger Precision 6.5C? I think the Ruger might still be the better choice.

  • Sunshine_Shooter

    If Remington is doing it, I’m less interested.

  • Edeco

    I hope Kel-Tec does a 26″ heavy barrel RDB in 6.5 Creedmoor.

    • Xtorin O’hern

      the RDB is a 5.56 length action, not gonna happen

      • Edeco

        Well, we’re a couple steps away, but I’ve read rumors of them up sizing the RDB to replace the 308 length RFB

        • Xtorin O’hern

          that would result in a rather ridiculous LoP don’t ya think?

          • Vitor Roma

            Hummm no. The lenght difference between 5,56 and x51 is what? 3 centimeters?

          • Edeco

            Not I, not that much difference and Kel Tec seem to think they can make it happen.

        • Stan Darsh

          Correct. Kel-Tec’s Chad Enos confirmed the RFB will be succeeded by the .308 RDB in the near future. It will also utilize SR25 style mags.

  • Bah

    QPQ Nitride > Cerakote.

      Nitride+Cerakote > Nitride alone
