Harris SLM bipod: Allows for great adjustability (6-9” or 9-13”) for shooters of different sizes, and it also has an adjustable swivel to deal with uneven ground.
US Optics 1.8-10X MR-10 scope: As you would expect from one of the best optics companies in the world, the U.S. Optics MR-10 is almost a must-have item for this rifle.
US Optics 30mm rings and mounts: Understandably, rings and mounts from U.S. Optics are a must. With a perfect fit and exceptional quality, they are essential partners to the scope.
AAC Titan-QD suppressor: With a good balance of weight and sound suppression, the Titan from Advanced Armament Corporation makes shooting the Model 700 Tactical Chassis a pleasure.
Vortex anti-cant bubble level: With the accuracy the Remington is capable of, it is a good call to get a solid anti-cant device to verify you are level before sending rounds downrange.
Wheeler Engineering FAT torque wrench: With any precision rifle, it is essential to check the torque on your scope screws and base regularly. This is especially true with a gun chambered in .338 Lapua. The Wheeler Fat Wrench offers a variety of heads and is a very reliable tool.
TAB Gear Rear bag: If you are serious about long-range shooting, a quality rear bag is a must-have accessory. One of the best on the market is the TAB Rear bag made by TAB Gear. Versatile and filled with light plastic beads, it is a solid bag.
For decades, the bolt-action Remington Model 700 has helped shooters create tight groups on the range, bag game in the backwoods and tackle threats on the battlefield. In fact, the U.S. Marine Corps still relies on Remington Model 700 variants for its snipers.

While the base rifle is plenty impressive, there are some add-ons that can enhance your precision downrange.
First up: A sturdy bipod like those made by Harris, a company known for its tank-tough products. A good bipod will help steady the rifle for precise shots and on-target follow-ups.
Of course, you’ll need quality optics, too. U.S. Optics’ 1.8-10X MR-10 scope offers plenty of magnification. A 37mm objective lens sits in front of a Turret Parallax Adjustment Locator (TPAL) system guaranteeing the sharpest image resolution possible.
