Think the 40X bench target gun is.

Per Remington's LE website:

"Designed for and used by the United States Military, the M24's popularity also stretches from SWAT teams nationwide to International Military and Government agencies. Based on Remington's legendary Model 700™ and 40-X™ rifles, famous for their "out of the box" accuracy, the M24 has quickly gained a reputation for precision among the sniper system community."

Also:

"In 1959, Remington redefined the way the world viewed precision accuracy with the introduction of the Model 40-XB Rangemaster bolt-action target rifle. Serving as the basic action design from which today's legendary Remington Model 700 Bolt-Action rifle was born, the Model 40-X has always been there when pinpoint accuracy matters most."

IIRC, the M40 was based on the short action version of the 700 40-x, while the M24 was based on the long action version.

Edit: sorry, I meant to refer to the XCR Compact when I wrote: "The VSF (if I've got the label correct) looks a lot like a 700P LTR with a different (but not much) stock."

The VSF looks interesting...but do you really want that brake?
