Remington announced Thursday they have expanded their Model 700 Mountain Stainless series to include a new chambering for the popular 6.5mm Creedmoor cartridge.

Big Green has been marketing the lightweight but durable rifle for the past several years in a half-dozen calibers popular with Western sportsmen ranging from 25-06 and 7mm-08 to 280 Rem and .30-06 Sprg, so the new Creedmoor offering makes sense.

Across the line, the series utilizes a 22-inch 416 stainless steel barreled action coupled with a Bell & Carlson stock with an aluminum bedding block to produce a rifle in the 6-pound range. The Creedmoor variant features a 1-in-8-inch right-hand twist.

All models in the series come standard with an X-Mark Pro externally adjustable trigger system and are scope mount ready. Suggested retail price is $1,152 but the 700 Moutain Stainless usually runs a bit less over the counter.
