Custom Remington 700PSS converted from .308 Win to 6.5 Creedmoor
The Remington Model 700 PSS (Police Sniper System) is a bolt-action sniper rifle designed for law enforcement and military applications. It is a variant of the well-known Remington Model 700, which has been a popular choice among hunters, target shooters, and law enforcement agencies for its accuracy, reliability, and adaptability.
The Remington 700 PSS features a heavy, free-floating barrel, which contributes to its excellent accuracy. The barrel is usually 26 inches long, although shorter barrels may be available depending on the specific model. The PSS typically comes chambered in .308 Winchester, but other calibers are also available, such as .300 Winchester Magnum and .338 Lapua Magnum.
The Remington 700 PSS has long been a favorite among law enforcement and military snipers due to its exceptional accuracy, reliability, and adaptability. Chambered in the popular .308 Winchester, this renowned bolt-action rifle has earned its place as a trusted precision tool. However, as the shooting world evolves, so do the preferences and requirements of its enthusiasts. The 6.5 Creedmoor cartridge has been gaining traction among long-range shooters for its superior ballistics and reduced recoil.
In this article, we will explore the process of converting a Remington 700 PSS from .308 Winchester to 6.5 Creedmoor, allowing shooters to take advantage of the benefits this modern cartridge has to offer.

"In my past life I was a Firearms Armorer and Instructor for Law Enforcement and various agencies. In my tenure, I obtained a #Remington rifle which I would save for a future project. Now that day has come with the ushering of 6.5 Creedmoor just dominating the Extended Range of short actions. And so I took that 700PSS and converted it from .308 Win to 6.5 Creedmoor. ELDM
