I never really bothered to pay attention before, but there’s a LOT of Remington 700’s at Boomershoot.DSC_0347

Seriously, I just walked down the line taking pictures and I’m finding that most of them are 700’s. 

Barron is the owner, editor, and principal author at The Minuteman, a competitive shooter, and staff member for Boomershoot. Even in his free time he’s merging his love and knowledge of computers and technology with his love of firearms.

He has a BS in electrical engineering from Washington State University. Immediately after college he went into work on embedded software and hardware for use in critical infrastructure. This included cryptographic communications equipment as well as command and control devices that were using that communications equipment. Since then he’s worked on just about everything ranging from toys, phones, other critical infrastructure, and even desktop applications. Doing everything from hardware system design, to software architecture, to actually writing software that makes your athletic band do its thing.

    I brought a Model 70 and an Encore instead

      But I actually would love to know the percentage break out. I hadn’t bothered to pay attention before.

    I think if you did a “scientific” study, you’d find about 1/4-3/8 of the actual long range rifles there were 700s, or 700 type actions, 1/8th were savages, 1/8th were encores and 1/8th were precision ARs; with the rest being “everything else”.

    So yeah, there’s probably twice as many 700s on the line as anything else… maybe three times as many.

    I had the only model 70 that I noticed (I’m sure there were others, but I didn’t notice them particularly).

    If you include the random rifles in there, iron sights, milsurps, carbines, non-long range AR’s etc… of course, the numbers are much more varied.

    For the price you can’t beat ’em. My $475 Remington 700 SPS Varmint shoots 0.5 MOA out of the box. Now, I may be one of the lucky ones, but I’m happy. My shooting partner had a loaner AR-10 that shot really well too. But that darn thing eats ammo in 25 round portions.

      The secret to not eat in 25 round portions with the AR-10 is don’t load a full mag!
