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.
