Remington Announces 8th Limited Edition Offering in the Model 700™ Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation Series

Madison, N.C. – Remington Announces 8th Limited Partnering for an eighth consecutive year with the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Remington is pleased to announce the 2008 offering of this limited edition series, the Model 700 XCR (Xtreme Conditions Rifle) RMEF Camo centerfire rifle chambered in our own high performance, magnum-powered 7mm Remington Ultra Mag. This annual Model 700 commemorative rifle features the Elk Foundation logo laser-engraved on the floorplate and Remington is proud to donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this rifle to RMEF in support of their mission to ensure the future of elk, other
wildlife and their habitat.

Hunting the majestic bull elk across the rugged and varied terrain of North America demands a rifle and cartridge up to the task; and Remington delivers with the unmatched performance of the Model 700 XCR bolt-action rifle chambered in the 7mm Remington Ultra Mag. A large case capacity on this non-belted magnum allows this cartridge to reach further down-range with a flatter trajectory and more down-range energy than any of its 7mm peers. And with the introduction of our performance-tailored Power Level™ ammunition in 7mm Remington Ultra Mag, this rifle/cartridge combo can live up to the extreme challenges of elk hunting with Power Level II or III and be equally effective for your whitetail hunt, with less recoil, shooting Power Level I.

The Model 700 XCR platform is our most resilient rifle with its armor-like, multilayer TriNyte® Corrosion Control System. This exclusive, patented process starts with a solid stainless steel barreled action that is plated with electroless nickel and a proprietary PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coating. This durable, micro-thin barrier provides superior abrasion resistance and virtual elimination of corrosion. Next the barreled action is fit into a weather-defying, synthetic stock with solid-grip, gray overmold on the fore-end and pistol-grip and is camouflaged with the official pattern of the Elk Foundation, Realtree® AP HD® which provides maximum concealment regardless of the terrain.

Other features of this high performance bolt-action include our X-Mark Pro™ trigger that delivers clean, crisp trigger pulls with virtually no creep; 26-inch hammer-forged, clean barrel; receiver drilled and tapped for scope mounts; hinged floorplate engraved with RMEF logo and three round magazine capacity; sling swivel studs; and patented Remington recoil pad which significantly lessens the felt recoil of this hard-hitting magnum. Previous offerings in the RMEF series include the Model 700 BDL™ SS Camo in 300 Remington Ultra Mag, 7mm Remington Ultra Mag, 300 Remington Short Action Ultra Mag and 300 Win Mag, and the Model 700 XCR Camo in 7mm Remington Mag , 300 WSM and 300 Remington Ultra Mag.

The eighth annual Model 700 XCR RMEF Camo rifle in 7mm Remington Ultra Mag, partnered with our new Power Level ammunition, makes this one of the most versatile rifles you can own.
