    Remington 700 VTR

    Other than maybe a cool look, is there any substantial advantage to this profile? I would imagine that, if it was all it was cracked up to be, then everyone would have it in their catalog.

    They've had those triangle-shaped barrels for quite a few years now, somewhere on the Remmy site they explained the theory behind it, it's basically an alternative to fluting as it has the same goals (reduce weight, promote cooling, etc.). But IMHO, if *none* of the premier barrel makers like Krieger, Bartlein, Rock Creek, et al, are doing this, it's an unproven theory at best, and a gimmick at worst. And early SniperCentral review was not positive.
