A nice PTG recoil lug is $25.99 from Midway......And if that's the only problem you have with the Rem 700...Then I'd say that's not enough to deter me.
I've been shooting Rem 700 rifles for a LONG time now, and have had no issues.
So, if you're one of those people who is afraid to take a rifle to the gunsmith, then get a Browning A-Bolt II, they'll be perfect from the factory. I've owned 2 of them, and still have 1 of them. They're great rifles.
However, doing a little smith work to a Remington SPS, truing the threads and shoulder on the factory barrel and truing the action and using a better lug, you will love the gun 10x better, and it should be a shooter for alot less money than a custom.
