Remington VTR Tactical with 5R Rifling

    Acusport is distributing a special version of the Remington Model 700 VTR. The VTR Tactical’s main drawcard is the use of 5R rifling with a 1:11.25″ twist. It also features a tactical style bolt handle.

    According to AccurateShooter, the benefits of 5R rifling is a better gas seal (resulting in greater velocity), less fouling and less jacket deformation. 5R rifling is used on the Army’s M24 rifle.

    The VTR Tactical will only be available in .308 Win.
