As ballpark figure, you will lose about 100fps, perhaps a bit more or less. It depends a lot on what ammo you are shooting.

The LTR is a nice rifle, there is a bit more muzzle flip in recoil than the 700p, but its also accepted by the remington LE folks as being the more accurate of the two (this will generate debate). Of course, they are so close that its not really something quantifiable based on the variables.

I like the stock on the 700P better, as its a bit thicker in all areas and more comfortable to ME.

Obvious difference is that the LTR has a 20" vs 26" barrel, and the barrel on the LTR is fluted (non traditional flutes though). The stock on the LTR has a shorter forearm, has a thinner and not as tall forend, and does not have a palm swell like the P. The stock in general has been slimmed down for weight savings.

thats about it. It just so happens that .308's like shorter 20" barrels (tac ops swears by this, as do others) so the LTR "tends" (not always) to be slightly more accurate than the P.

If you are going long range, go with the P, short to mid range, the LTR does fine
