Remington 700 SPS Varmint, amazing results!!

Last year around November i decided to go out and get myself a varmint gun that i could use on some coyotes. I picked up a Remington 700 SPS Varmint chambered in a 243. win. Because of weather i never got a real good chance to test the accuracy out and so yesterday i went out to do some real good testing at 100 yards. In the picture the bottom shot was my first shot before making adjustments then the next 3 was my 3 shot group. Kind in mind this is a completely factory gun, no adjustments, with a vortex viper 6.5-20x44mm and factory ammo. 80 Grain federal soft point.

    I got my SPS Varmint last year, replaced it stock to B&C, it shoots amazing groups sometimes if I'm up to it they measure 0.24" with my handloads.

    It seems like a lot of people write the mass produced 700's off but I've had great luck with the two I own. One is a 223 SPS Varmint and the other is a pencil barrel SPS in 7 mag. They both shoot fantastic with handloads and both have B&C stocks.

    Lots of people say the barrels look ugly, but you rarely hear about bad accuracy! I just bedded the stock on my synthetic ADL varmint 308 and it shoots just like that.

    Took my Rem 700 SPS for a test to range I'm working on load developing for it, here is 100 yard print. If I didn't get that flier on the right it would be perfect 5 shot group using 55 grain V-Max:



    then 300 yard, here I didn't dial correctly and only 3 shots fired, this group measured 0.9" from center to center not bad for 300 yards using 52 grain A-Max:



    I also tried 600 yards but groups start to open up, light bullet have small BC so it shot 4.288"@ 600, there I miscalculate bullet drop so bullets impacted 12" below target... I need one of those calculators for my phone doing it by hand sometimes inconsistent.

    Good shooting guys

    I knew in my heart that some of these newer remingtons must still have the goods.

    Your rifle shows typical accuracy potential for a factory Remington. My rifle had similar results....
