Remington 700 SPS

Do any of you guys own one of these? I'm thinking of getting one in .223 mainly for spotlighting, but i haven't found any decent reviews by googleing so far.

1)How do they shoot?
2)Can you get them with a heavy barrel? Do they cost more?
3)What is the mag capacity for both the internal and DM models in .223rem?
4)Can you buy a larger detatchable mag, say 10 rounds?

Thanks guys.

    remington just put out a sps varmint it has a heavier barrel and is about the same price as the standard sps. I had a sps in .300 ultra mag it would shoot 1 inch groups with factory ammo and a good scope. i mainly bought it for the action. would say you can't go wrong with one because if it doesn't shoot you don't have that much money into it.

    my brother has one in a 22-250 and it prints sub MOA @ 100 with almost any bullet you put down the barrel.
