at 209 primers ammo shop One can’t help but to think back to the Remington XP-100 when seeing the new Remington 700 CP, but this new “chassis pistol” isn’t intended to be a second act for varminters or silhouette shooters. Introducing the .221 Fireball in 1963, the XP-100 was designed for long-range shooting; the 700 CP was not.
Our Remington 700 CP review highlights the short-action rifle fitted with either a 10 1/2-inch barrel when chambered in .223 Remington or .300 Blackout, or a 12 1/2-inch barrel in .308 Winchester.
When shooting supersonic loads, the potential for fantastic fireballs is there, especially in low-light, but the .300 Blackout loads are rather tame. The barrels are threaded 1/2×28 for .223 Rem. and 5/8×24 for .300 BLK and .308 Win. I would encourage you to shoot the Remington 700 CP suppressed, as a suppressor also serves as a barrel weight helping to keep the muzzle down and the target steady in a scope. To fast-attach an AAC 762-SD, I had to install AAC’s three-prong flash hider, but I also evaluated this pistol with AAC’s direct-thread Ti-Raid 30 silencer, which improved our accuracy results.
Accuracy is mind-blowing, especially for the .300 Blackout model. Though I’ve shot the Remington 700 PC in .223 and .308, the .300 BLK chamber is my favorite. With a 3-12X handgun scope turned up near 12X, the 700 PC impressed. To date, this pistol looks to be the most accurate .300 BLK platform G&A has ever tested. 700 cp qd pistol
All .300 BLK supersonic loads averaged near 1 inch at 100 yards. (Subsonic loads averaged closer to 2 inches.) Every load produced at least one group that measured an inch. I continued grouping through to the bottom of each magazine and found that the average group was still only 2.5 inches — for 10 rounds!
The 700 CP is unbelievably accurate. When shooting Hornady’s 110-grain V-Max, I started with a four-shot group that measured .34 inch! (Then I blew it out to .75 inch with my fifth shot.) While testing Black Hills 125-grain OTM load, I fired three groups that measured three-quarters of an inch. It was amazing.
These results didn’t come without some experimentation. I first tried shooting off of a bipod and explored ways to support the pistol. The 700 CP’s accuracy potential appeared after stacking bags under the forend, grip and my wrists. Then, I shot it like a pistol using two hands.
