    Have ANY of the many pre-orders on this arrived at any dealer?
    If not, this is the most ridiculous one to date.

    I'm understanding what guns made it to Canada are now all sold and there will be no more shipments of them until Remington works out their receivership issues.

    interesting.

    So, for either the 223 or the 308, the loss in velocity is negligible if you were to hunt with this?

    Well it's not your average pre order, considering outbound shipments got halted as the manufacturer got broken up and sold to multiple other companies.
    Please note, my opinion could be biased based on past and present employment

    For the guys wanting some . Wouldn't it be easy enough to buy a action of your choice, chassis and just rebarrel it to get the same thing instead of witing. Or am I missing something here? There are plenty of great sponsors here that the parts would be easy and reasonable to come by.

    I haven't reloaded for my 308 Win yet but from everything I've read I should be doing 2400fps with factory 150gr and max 2500fps with 150gr reloads.

    I have also checked into 125gr loads I should be getting max 2700fps with these.

    Is it just getting a barrel cut down and bolting it into a chassis? Are there any technical or legal issues that one should be aware of?

    Barrel can't be cut down to less than 18". But you can get a new one made as long as the overall length is greater than 26" when collapsed.
