Madison, N.C. – For 2007, Remington is pleased to announce the seventh offering in the limited edition Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF) rifle series, the Model 700 XCR™ (Xtreme Conditions Rifle) RMEF Camo chambered in the flat-shooting, hard-hitting .300 Remington Ultra Mag. This annual offering features the Elk Foundation logo engraved on the hinged floorplate and the stock wears the official RMEF camo pattern – Realtree® All-Purpose™ HD. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this rifle will be donated to RMEF in support of their conservation efforts.
The physical demands of elk hunting can push a hunter to his limits as well as taking a toll on his rifle. The Model 700 XCR bolt-action rifle is built to handle the most-daunting terrain and weather conditions with our exclusive, patent-pending TriNyte® Corrosion Control System. This multi-layer process consists of electroless nickel and proprietary PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coatings on the solid stainless steel barreled action. Benefits of this micro-thin coating include superior scratch resistance and virtual elimination of corrosion. Fitting this weather-impervious barreled action into a top-of-the-line synthetic stock adds to the toughness of this Model 700. The durable stock has easy-gripping, gray overmolded panels in the grip and fore-end areas, utilizing a rubber overmolding technology from Hogue, and is camouflaged with the latest multi-purpose pattern from Realtree and the official camo of the Elk Foundation – Realtree All-Purpose HD. Other features include clean 26-inch barrel; drilled and tapped for scope mounts; hinged floorplate; sling swivel studs and recoil-taming, R3® Recoil Pad. And new for 2007, the Model 700 XCR rifles feature the Remington X-MARK PRO™ trigger. With our tight production tolerances, this trigger breaks like glass, has zero creep and up to 40% lower out-of-the-box trigger pull weight.
Previous offerings in the RMEF series include the Model 700 BDL™ SS Camo in .300 Rem Ultra Mag, 7mm Rem Ultra Mag, .300 Rem Short Action Ultra Mag and .300 Win Mag, and the Model 700 XCR Camo in 7mm Rem Ultra Mag and .300 WSM.
The seventh annual Model 700 XCR RMEF Camo rifle in .300 Remington Ultra Mag, partnered with the new Remington Power Level ammunition, makes this one of the most versatile rifles you can own. Available for one year only at a suggested retail price of $1199.
