    Remington 783 Synthetic heavy barrel

    So I get this message from Remington regarding their 783 heavy barrel but when I went to their website (Remington.com) for more information it says they have none available.

    I did a search looking for a review or any info and I can't find any for sale or any reviews.

    Is this a new product?

    Does anyone on the forum have any info about this rifle?

    Looks like they are trying to out-Ruger the Ruger American Ranch Rifle. Not a fan of such short barrel lengths myself. I have a Model 7 with that length of barrel in .243 and it sounds like a 7mm Rem Mag when it goes off.

    I too am not a fan of barrels that short and the associated reloading issues that they can cause with regard to full powder burn. Limits the powders that can be used and the velocities that can be achieved, but I guess if that is not an issue for you, enjoy. (I don't like the look though either)

    That might make a handy truck- or tractor-rifle if you were in farm country. But not sure for that why you'd need a HB profile, unless it's just to support the suppressor that everyone suddenly has-to-have. When I ran a Xmas tree farm in PA we always carried a rifle on the tractor when we were mowing tree rows all summer, but I don't recall the need to have it suppressed.

    Just part of marketing I guess. A 20" barreled rifle makes a little sense I guess but dropping to a 16" especially in 308 or 6.5 seems like a waste and definitely wastes a lot of potential of the cartridge. I have a 20" SPS tactical in 308 and I would not want anything shorter.
