The Remington 700 SPS looks like a fine all weather hunting rifle. As far as the magazine it is a matter of preferance. The detachable magazine would facilitate ease of loading and unloading.

I would go for detacheable unless you plan to sit up on trees with lots of branches.

For a hunting rig I prefer not to have a detachable box. Sometimes I like to carry my rifle on my shoulder there the dump plate is and you couldn't do that comfortably with a detachable box.

I agree on the fixed mag for hunting, just more comfortable to carry.

Another thing to consider is that with Remington, once set up for factory "DM" mags, you're locked in to a detachable mag system of one type or another. The bottom of the DM receiver is milled out and the feed rails are part of the magazine.
