I’ve had or worked up loads for 5-6 of them. All 223 or 22-250. All shot extremely well. I bought one back in the early 90’s but found it to heavy and cumbersome to be my primary coyote rifle. But they are great p dog rifles. My go to yotie rifle is an old BDL with 3-9 leupold and 50BT’s at 3800fps.

ALL VLS's,PSS's,VSSF's,VS's(both Walnut and Synthetic) and T-hole Laminate VS's,are MUCHLY improved with The Chop. Balance and handling,become exceptional. Hint.

The 22-250's are pieces of fhuqking schit,due RPM,though it's been a coupla weeks since I've chopped one of those. Hint.

Pass the Terrain and hold The Fluff. Hint.

As Mechanics go,the 243 Win is THE pick of the litter in said Model(s),but the 204 notion was fhuqking HILARIOUS. Hint.................

I found mine to be an excellent shooter. I sold it.
On the expansive ranches I shoot I move a lot afoot. The gun was just uncomfortably heavy to carry and swing. I reverted back to a favored Tikka.
That’s just me and my style, great gun and great shooter otherwise.

Soup: I currently own and shoot 8 (eight!) Remington 700 VLS Rifles - all are rated by me as VERY accurate!
They are in calibers:
204 Ruger
223 Remington
22-250 Remington (three of these - including one VLS-SS)
243 Winchester
6 m/m Remington
260 Remington
ANYONE who declares that the Remington 700 VLS in 22-250 Remington is NOT an accurate rig simply does NOT know what they are talking about or they are doing something basically wrong!
PERIOD!
I am also familiar with several VLS 700's in caliber 22-250 Remington owned by Hunting partners and each of them is at least pleasing accurate for their owners.
If I recall correctly they weigh about 9 pounds 6 ounces without rings, base, scope or bipod.
I tote mine along on predator and Colony Varmint Hunts with NO problems what so ever.
The modest mass of the Remington 700 VLS aids in accurate field shooting situation in my experience.
Been using these VLS Rifles for Predators, Colony Varmint and Big Game for 25+ years now and they work VERY well for those uses.
I recommend you invest in the Rifle in question.
Some of my 700 VLS Rifles have way more than doubled in value since I bought them.
Good luck.

P.S.: Just read the other postings in this thread and I am happy you purchased the VLS!
AND.... how does it shoot?
Leave that barrel alone - thank me later. Cutting that barrel would diminish its value.
