In 1962 Remington unleashed the model 700 and with it the 7mm Remington Magnum. Both have left a mark on hunters and shooters that history will never rub away. The 700 is probably the most used bolt action rifle in the world and the 7mm Magnum is one of the most worldly cartridges.
Remington is celebrating this 50 year anniversary with a very distinct Remington 700.

As cool as these two commemerative rifles are, I think my favorite new rifle from Remington is the stainless Mountain Rifle with the lightweight Bell & Carlson synthetic stock made with aramid fiber. Aramid fiber is a royalty free way to say Kevlar. The new Mountain Rifle has a price tag of $1123.47.
