Re: Reminton 700 SPS

I own 2 of these as well a SS model in 25/06 sporter barrel that I have killed deer/goats out to 530 yards with! I did nothing but adjust the trigger a little lighter! It shoots 110 nosler accu bonds well and they hammer down big game!

I also have a .243 SPS heavy varmint barrel that will shoot less than 1" at 200 yards and have killed coyotes with it at 480 yards, both have the newer trigger which I like alot for crispness, just needs to be adjusted down a little on each one! I thought I would have to re bed in a different stcok but the vented varmint stock does well on a heavy barrel which unless you have some touching, with the stiffer heavy barrel I don't see where adding a 300.00 stock to this rig would make it shoot any better. For the price and the reliabilty of a 700 action getting this under 1" at 200 yards is awsome and I don't know how anyone would be unhappy with that performance of a factory rifle! A buddy has a 2800.00 gun in .243 and it doesn't shoot alot better to justify the cost differance IMO!

In time I can add a new barrel, have it trued up and then set it in a nicer stock if need be, but the performance I have gotten out of these 2 guns for less than 600.00 EA they are a bargin IMO.
