Obviously we can't make too great of generalizations, but I believe it is the Remington VS SF (Varmint Synthetic Stainless Fluted). It is essentially a Remington Sendero SF in .308.
With certain factory loads, my gun shoots 1/2" groups (3 shot group). :grin:
The problem is that Remington doesn't make this gun anymore. (I think not even in the black matte version either.)
However, you CAN get this gun (or at least almost identical to it) in the Remington PSS version. It's the rifle that the police use in their sniper situations and the only difference is the stock design is a little different. (But it is still a black matte bull barreled rifle.)
A rifle with a better design saftey & more accurate too than the Remmie is Winchester Mod.70 varmint or target, You can get it with peep sights. 10 rd. group you can cover with a dime at 100 yd. 10 rd. group at 500yd you can cover with a playing card.
I guess what Remington told you makes sense - put better barrels on rifles that involve humans, rather than rifles that involve hunting animals. I just wonder what criteria Remington uses to decide which barrels are better. Did they tell you?
