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.
Old aunts used to come up to me at weddings, poking me in the ribs & cackling "You're next". They stopped after I started doing the same thing to them at funerals.

Re: Remington 700 SPS

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.

Re: Remington 700 SPS

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