A rifle without equal and a superior performer in every way, the Model 700 CDL SF pairs a receiver machined from a solid stainless-steel bar, with a fluted barrel for reduced weight and unmatched shot-to-shot consistency. The 700 CDL SF's 416 stainless steel fluted barrel is 24” in standard and short action magnum calibers and 26” long action magnum calibers. The cylindrical receiver design provides a solid bedding base in the stock for consistent shot placement. A recessed bolt face locks up inside the counter-bored breech of the barrel which is surrounded by the receiver, forming “three-rings-of-steel” enclosing the cartridge case head for unparalleled strength. The SF integral extractor is set in a groove inside the rim of the bolt face, uniformly supporting the cartridge head. The smooth X-Mark Pro is externally adjustable for added precision.
