Madison, N.C. – Remington is pleased to announce the 2008 offering in this highly collectible CDL series - the Model 700 CDL (Classic Deluxe) SF (Stainless Fluted) LTD Edition chambered in the solid-performing, soft-shooting 260 Remington. Known for its mild recoil and superb accuracy, the 260 Remington chambering is the perfect cartridge for medium-sized game, particularly for younger or recoil -sensitive hunters, and has become a highly desired choice for long-range target shooters where volume shooting and barrel life can be issues.
The third offering in this annual series features commemorative engraving on the hinged floorplate, wears the “Model 700 Limited” rollmark on the receiver and is available in limited production quantities for one year only as was its predecessors – the 30-06 Sprg offering in 2006 and 17 Remington Fireball offering in 2007. The Model 700 CDL SF LTD Edition is housed in a satin finished, straight comb American walnut stock with right-handed cheek piece. Enhancing the classic look of the stock are generous cut checkering, contrasting black fore-end tip and grip cap. The durable 416 stainless steel, magnum-contoured 24-inch clean barrel features our Light Varmint-style fluting for weight reduction and striking appearance. The barreled action and jeweled bolt both feature a satin stainless finish. Other standard features include receiver drilled and tapped for scope mounts; four round magazine capacity; and sling swivel studs. Performance-driven features added to this offering include our accuracy-enhancing X-Mark Pro™ trigger which breaks like glass with virtually no creep, while the patented Remington recoil-reducing pad lessens “felt recoil” and shooter fatigue.
Don’t think this finely-crafted, limited edition rifle should simply sit on display in your gun cabinet. Partner this high performance bolt-action with one of our four premium 260 Remington ammunition loads - including our new Managed-Recoil™ 140 gr Core-Lokt® offering and deer hunting will never be the same! The 2008 Model 700 CDL SF LTD Edition 260 Remington is available for one year only at a suggested retail price of $1100.
