Remington 700 is one of the best sniper rifle in the world. Remington 700 series of firearms are bolt-action rifles manufactured by Remington Arms since 1962, when U.S. Marines Winchester refused requests for a replacement barrel. Charlos Hatchock including the user model 700. The Remington 700 comes in a large number of variants, with different stocks, barrel configurations, metal finishes and calibers. In addition there are 3 lengths of action (not including the Model Seven's lightweight action, which is even shorter than the 'standard' short action). There is the short action for .308-length cartridges, the standard for .30-06 length cartridges and the long action for magnum calibers.

Both the U.S. Army's M24 Sniper Weapon System and U.S. Marine Corps' M40 sniper rifles are built from the Remington Model 700 rifle, in different degrees of modification, the main difference being the custom fitted heavy contour barrel. The M24 uses the long action bolt-face, whereas the M40 uses the short action. The reason for this difference is that the M24 was originally intended to chamber the longer .30-06 round.
