Remington 700 LSS .338 Ultra Mag.

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

Though some would call it garish, we liked the look of the Remington 700 LSS. The shiny gray-black stock complemented the excellent dull-gray stainless metal work, we thought. The Monte-Carlo stock gave the rifle a right feel that probably helped reduce the kick of its potent cartridge. The hollow rubber pad also helped, though it needed rounding on its top edge.

The Remingtonís action was as slick as any weíve seen. We also liked the simple safety and the reinforcing pins through the stock to help prevent cracking from extreme recoil.
The big rifle didnít really punish us as much as did the Winchester Model 70. A good recoil pad helped. Also, the big cartridge wasnít pushed to its maximum, we thought, which keeps pressure down and makes for shooting fun. We liked this rifle, but it needs more accuracy, we thought.
The flat-top checkering worked exceptionally well. We werenít happy with the floorplate release within the trigger guard, but it didnít fail us.
