Opinions on Rem 700 SPS Tactical 223

Hey, I'm just trolling around trying to get everyone's opinion on the new Remington 700 SPS Tactical in 223 caliber. I'm looking for a cheaper alternative to my Rem 700 LTR in 308 for a truck gun. I know I could get another LTR in 223, however they're around $850 to $1000 here in this area. Good or bad, don't pull any punches and give it to me straight. Thanks in advance for your thoughts and comments, Tom

    I have a 308 SPS Tactical...the stock is pure junk, but after I "whittled" on it some to get it freefloated when using the bipod...that thing will shoot.

    .418 MOA so far....I have only had a week or so. I may be able to do better...load development is still ongoing.

    I did have to send it back to Remington, it had a few problems with the ejector. They fixed it, paid all shipping fees, and sent it back with a nicely "tuned" X Mark trigger.

    I had already adjusted the other trigger to 28 ounces, so I didn't send it in, I only sent them the barreled action...no stock either.

    Customer service was great...but you will probably not need it...I imagine the 223 will be good to go too.

    EDITED TO ADD: I bought mine off Gunbroker...from Sportsmans Safari for $560
