    A warm welcome to the 700 Rifle Forum.



    Visit often.
    Thanks for the welcome, I'm sure I'll be here often with questions and hopefully helping once I have more knowledge under my belt.

    I picked up my rifle the other day, so here is the picture as requested. I like the feel of it and the weight but I wish the stock was a bit higher, my cheek rests a bit low for the scope but I'm very happy with the purchase. I'm eager to get out and break it in.

    You can get a Stick on or Lace On Comb Pad for the butt stock.

    Welcome to the Forum!

    I purchased a 700 ADL Varmint 223 Rem in 2009 from Dick's Sporting Goods. The attached target below is from that rifle. I was doing a scope check (in/100yd vs MOA). The stock, Scope and trigger have been changed but this rifle is a shooter. It's not unusual for these modifications to be made on the lower end rifles (triggers on most). I am sure you are going to enjoy this rifle.

    It has a Choate Ultimate Varmint stock on it so it weighs in at thirteen pounds! Makes it pretty easy to shoot 53gr Matchkings.

    Thank you for the info, I've seen precision rifle stocks with the elevated cheek area but didn't know I could buy one to add to my existing stock. I'll take a look around for one, I'm sure Sportsman's Warehouse will have something along those lines.

    Thanks for the welcome Doom. That's good to hear that it's an accurate out of the box rifle and I do plan on having the upgrades done that you mentioned.

    That's some great shooting by the way and hope I can get to that level, nice tight groups on center.

    They are on the expensive side but Bradley Cheekrests makes a nice strapon. I have one on my 308 due to the stock that’s on it.

    For less than the cost of an adjustable comb, you could probably buy a Drop In Ready Boyd Stock with the right dimensions for you. First thing is to determine what the right dimensions are?
