The Remington 700 is a popular bolt-action rifle that has been a favorite among hunters, target shooters, and law enforcement agencies for decades. The .308 Winchester chambering is one of the most popular cartridges used with the Remington 700.

If you're looking to purchase a Remington 700 chambered in .308 Winchester, here are some things to consider:

the factory  Rem700 SPS Tactical Rifle .308 Win 16.5  rifle

Action: The Remington 700 is available in two different actions: short action and long action. The .308 Winchester cartridge is a short action cartridge, so you should choose a rifle with a short action for best performance.

Barrel: The Remington 700 is available with a variety of barrel lengths, materials, and profiles. A longer barrel will give you greater accuracy at longer ranges, but a shorter barrel may be more maneuverable in tight quarters. You should also consider the profile of the barrel, such as a heavy or fluted barrel, which can affect the balance and handling of the rifle. 

Trigger: The Remington 700 comes with a factory trigger that is adjustable but may not be as smooth or consistent as an aftermarket trigger. Upgrading to a quality trigger can greatly improve the accuracy and consistency of your rifle.

Stock: The stock of the Remington 700 can greatly affect the accuracy and comfort of the rifle. You can choose between synthetic or wood stocks, and there are also aftermarket stocks available that can be customized to fit your needs. 

Scope: A high-quality scope is essential for accurate shooting at longer ranges. Consider the magnification, reticle, and overall quality of the scope you plan to use with your Remington 700.

Accessories: Depending on your intended use, you may want to consider accessories such as a bipod, sling, or other attachments to enhance the functionality and performance of your rifle.
