Re: accuracy of walmart rem 700.
I know my shooting buddy (InvisibleSoul85) has a factory SPS .300 WinMag 26" barrel that shoots ¼-½ MOA groups with my handloads. We've loaded everyting from Nosler 155 Custom Comps to Berger 230 Hybrid OTM's, and we've found a good load with just about everything we've tried. The only things we've done to the gun were pillar bed the stock (homemade setup, cost like $10), adjust the trigger, and free-float float the barrel, and torque the action screws to proper tension after pillar bedding it.
Not bad shooting for a sporter barreled almost completely factory SPS.
