What to do....build or buy

As I've mentioned before I have a Rem 700 SPS in 300 Win Mag.....I have the opportunity to buy a Sendero SFII stock (h-s precision) for $200. I think that the stock will give me a great platform to work from.

SO should I buy that and then bed the action or just buy a Sendero SF II?

I will be using the gun to shoot coues/AZ black bear and elk here in AZ. Of course I'm also entering the LRH world and would like to be serious in the sport and continually gain ability and accuracy out to 1000 yards.

Thanks

    if it were me id buy the sendero. senderos have bull barrels, SPS' dont. there will be alot of space between the barrel and the stock, maybe too much.

    get the sendero stock and just build up another 300win or 300rum on a custom barrel. or another caliber such as the edge etc.

    I second screech, You have about $400 in the sps, another $200 in a stock. Get a great barrel for $300, thread fit and chambered for another $175-200. And you will have a sendero with a quality barrel, just pick a good smith. At $1100 invested you have a custom vs $999 for the factory stick. Save your nickles and have the action trued for a bit more.
