Re: remington 700 SPS varmint ...stock's?

I bought the sps in 22-250 from Dick's Sporting goods they have a big sale every spring on the varmint specials with a scope on them.I replaced the scope sighted it in, it produces .5 groups @100 with no bedding so I see no problem with them.

I also just bought a Rem 700 VSF in 308, the plastic stock it came with is a complete piece of cheap junk.

I'm looking at swapping for either a Bell & Carlson or a Choate fully adjustable stock.

Re: remington 700 SPS varmint ...stock's?

I removed a 308 adl to a sps bdl stock (no modifying) shaved some off the mag. And blocked the bottom to match the stock. The groups closed up to .5 @100 yards. Very pleased with the change.
The adl stock was a piece of junk! I tried floating and bedding to no avail.

I have an SS 20X on mine. www.supersniper.com. Decent glass and accurate adjustments. The rear focus is cool and it'll dial down below 10 yards, so this makes a decent hunting scope as well.

Re: remington 700 SPS varmint ...stock's?

I have an SPS in 204, and it grouped very tight when the rifle was newer. right around .75 consistently at 100 yrds.

But my last trip to the range resulted in large groups in the 1.5"- 2" groups and after investigation I found out the action had became loose inside the stock.

Not sure how it happened or why, but even with the bolts on the action tight, you can still grab the top of the action and wiggle it inside the stock. Im thinking that possibly fromt he factory the bolts were too tight and caused this, cause when I got the rifle I never done anything to it or eve took the barreled action out of the furniture. When it started acting up I finally took it out of the stock, and when trying to get the bolts loose I nearly broke my damn wrist trying to get the bolts free.

So I too am in the market for a new stock. Probably oing to go with a thumbhole boyds laminate of some color. Either the pepper or the sky blue one...

Re: remington 700 SPS varmint ...stock's?

The Remington I have in 308 5R has the HS stock works great. then the SPS was a different issue with the cheap factory stock. I tried every enhancement to no avail. A friend gave me a new take off in a sporter barrel stock. I put the stock on and of course it did not fit but only about three or four inches from the end of the fore arm. this issue was fixed by clamping that put in a wood vise contured to accept the barrel and tighten down until it snapped on the end of forearm which was a very little crack>unnoticed . then my next step was to put black shafting epoxie on the end of the forearm as if bedding and clamping again for 24 hrs. This was my accuracy fix.
