I’ve heard from several readers about the relatively new Remington Model 770 rifles, as a low-cost alternative to the better-known Model 700. These use 6-groove button-rifled barrels. Model 770 rifles can be found new and factory equipped with a 3-9×40 variable scope for less than $375, or less than $500 in the more weather-resistant stainless steel variant with a camouflage stock.  The scopes are already bore-sighted at the factory.  One of these rifles, along with a few spare 4-round detachable magazines is effectively an “off the shelf” counter-sniper rifle capable of 500+ yard shots on man-sized targets. For caliber commonality and a manageable recoil, most folks will want to buy one chambered in .308 Winchester with a 22-inch barrel. But if you live in elk, moose, or caribou country, or if you desire a very long range countersniper rifle, then experienced shooters might consider buying a second Model 770 chambered in .300 Winchester Magnum, with a 24-inch barrel. That would be a 700+ yard capable rifle, in well-trained hands. (For long range shooting training, I highly recommend Holland’s of Oregon.) – JWR
