Congratulations on your Remington.  I have always been a fan of the 700.  It appears to me in the current Remington offerings that there are varying levels of quality.  I’m sure that the lower raking models do no receive the same level of craftsmanship to stay competitive at that price point.  I have also recently a new to me lightly used .300 Win Mag in the Remington 700 XCR Tactical.  I cleaned it and there are little signs of use paying extra attention to the bolt, face, and follower areas.  I’m pleased with the feel and fit and finish of this rifle and hope it shoots well.  I just mounted one of my old Weaver T-16 scopes while saving the funds for an appropriate long range scope.  I think the T-16 will be fine for some load development work for awhile.  Good luck on your long range quest with your new 5-R.
