Rem. 700?

Hi all,

I'm thinking of getting a Rem. 700 but I just don't know which one!
There is so many different 700 models out there so I need a little help.
My only demand is that it must have an heavy barrel, so can you please name some Rem. 700 with heavy barrels?

Thanks for the answers!

But, you see, I'm from Sweden and in Sweden a Rem. 700 VS cost about $1200 and a VS Composite is $2600, so it is a bit exspensive I think.
But maybe a VS is affordable.

I want the cheapest Rem. 700 with a heavy barrel... :D
So you say all Rem. 700 have heavy barrels?
thanks for the answers!

But I still have got some questions, why is the 700 VS Composite almost twice as exspensive as the 700 VS?

Btw, I think the 700 VS seems as a very nice rifle. But do it also have a
HS precision stock as the 700P? And is it fully aluminium bedded?

And if I do buy this rifle, what scope do you think I should get?
Sorry, forgot to mention :oops:

I will be using it alot on the shooting range (but it's mostly just 300 meters ranges around here) and for a little bit of hunting of course, however I don't like hunting like elk, so from the scope point of view I don't need a low magnification in the bottom. I have looked at the Leupold Mark 4 LR/T M3 10X which seems as a very nice scope (which it is) :wink: .

So in the end I think it will be: (note that the US$ prices is just transformed from Swedish kronor.)

Remington 700 VS (.308W) $1400 US (11 000 Swedish kronor)
Leupold Mark 4 LR/T M3 10X $1950 US (15 000 Swedish kronor)

+ maybe Harris bipod, sling etc.
