The Remington 700 CDL has a soft, plain look to it, though we found the wood and metal finishes to be uniform and well done. We discovered the new X-Mark Pro Trigger system to be misrepresented, breaking at nearly 6 pounds out of the box. Also, we were surprised that there was no attempt to float the barrel properly on this 700 CDL. With a noisy safety added to the poor trigger as supplied, we wouldn’t hunt with it. With trigger work and some stock attention, we might.

We can appreciate the attempt at “Classic Deluxe” understated styling. We can’t appreciate the gaudy “Remington” embossing on the 700 CDL’s bulbous recoil pad—something like a wristwatch on a Roman gladiator.
The Remington alone came with a 24-inch barrel, as opposed to the 22-inch barrels offered by Browning and Savage. We believe that accounts for the somewhat sluggish feel of the 700 CDL. We spent enough time making brass in front of our CED millennium chronograph to tell you that the extra barrel length resulted in no discernible performance gain with the three brands of ammo.
