    Hello all,

    Does anyone know what calibers the model 700 BDL Varmint Heavy Barrel rifle was offered in during its production period? I'd like to start a collection of these rifles and I'd like to see what different chamberings were offered.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    I'm positive it was chambered for most SA calibers, but you'll have to check, contact Remington

    Check out these two websites.
    Between the Remington (archived) site and the wiki you may be able to get what you're looking for.

    Should be a pretty nice collection if you get 'em all.

    Thanks Folks! From the information you peovided and other sources I have this list of calibers for the 700 BDL varmint rifle:
    .222, .223, 22-250, .243, 6mm Rem, and .308.

    Am I missing any from this list??? I thought about 25-06 but I think this is a long action cartridge, right?

    Thanks again for the help with this!

    I suppose I need to add 25-06 to the line up after all. Take a look at this ad from 1979:



    I guess I'll just work from this list. I think that it would make an impressive collection to have all of these rifles from 1979 or earlier. COOL! The quest has begun!

    i have the 788 in 308 and it shoots great!! i talked to 2 guncollectors here and both had similar responses-the 788 was built netween 76-81 and was desigened as a ranch rifle for farmers to throw behind the seat for varmits as a LOW COST option to the top of the line 700, BUT when it started outperforming the 700 they stopped production and opted to push the 700. anyway you put it i wish i had a truckload of them cause they are deadly accurate with factory 180 gr. win ammo. so if yall find one for sale and dont grabb it LET ME KNOW!!!!
    ...kill em all !!!!

    .220 SWIFT, one of the finest varmint calibers ever made.

    Hi Folks,
    Bear with me as I'm just starting in the rifle section of the sport after being in the Bullseye Pistol Discipline.
    I just bought a slightly used 700 with a 26" bull barrel in 22-250. It has what my shooting buddies call a "Lawyer Device" on the bolt.
    I'd like to know what model designation it is in; ADL,BDL or CDL.
    Serial# starts with a "G", followed by 63684*# and has a blind mag.
    Please enlighten this mere mortal.
    Thank you,
    Radpop
