Re: Rem. 700 SPS-Varmint vs. Savage 12FV in .243

on the website it says" full aluminium bedding block", does this mean that the barrel forward of the action is not free floating? can someone explain it better please.
secondly how do the loads you have perform out to the 1000yard mark? any numbers?

    QUICK CARL

    WHEN YOU SAY STOCK FREE FLOATED DOES THIS MEAN YOU DONE IT?
    OR THE WAY THE STOCK CAME FACTORY?

    <font color="blue">My best friend free-floated the stock for me.

    I'm not totally in love with the stock, even after free-floating. It's plastic, after all, and when you fire the rifle off a Caldwell Front Rest the rifle actually 'twangs' -- vibrates such that you can feel it after the shot -- because the plastic stock is just too flexible so the plastic forearm acts like a leaf-spring since it is not in contact with the barrel anywhere along itís length. I am looking at soon replacing the stock with an HS Precision stock.

    But for now it sure shoots -- and for an inexpensive factory rifle I donít see how anyone could complain.</font>

    Dang that is some good shooting for a factory rifle for sure, 5 shot groups at that!!! Its nice to have a rifle come from the factory and shoot good groups. Thats just proof you dont need to spend $2K to get a good shooting rifle. Although some still doubt it. All my rifles are factory sporters and will shoot .5" 3 shot groups easily with there preferred loads.

    I'm looking at getting a 243 for coyotes. Am looking at the heavy barreled SPS. Would like to shoot the 87g vmax. I already have a 25-06, and my mom has a ruger mk2 s/s in .243 I could use, but I dont. I dont really care for that rifle much...

    i read that some of the remington 700rifles have rifles which are'pressure bedded' and removing the buildup from the stock to free float the barrel might not always help.
    so which remington 700's are factory free floated with a pillar bedded action, or is there no such thing? thank you
