They have a bona fide place in shooting, and sell like lemon aid in the Sahara.

I didn't question that at all. I actually like the .308.
I was just wondering why almost every "varmint" rifle is chambered in .204, .223, .22-250, maybe .243, then a big jump way up to .308 ??
It would kinda be like selling "squirrel rifles" in .17HMR, .22LR, and .30-06, wouldn't it?

More like 17 HMR, 22 Mag, and .223. .30-06' is too big a jump. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

The only difference pointed out ot me between the Rem 700 PSS and the 700 SPS Varmint was the stock and the finish matte blue as opposed to parkerized. The PSS has the H S Precision stock on it. The barrels have the same 1 in 10 twist.

Both barrels have a 12" twist.

I checked with Rem... and the PSS is still 12" and the SPS was recently changed to 10"

That is good because I just put mine on an order/layaway plan. So it should come with the 1 in 10 twist. That was what I wanted anyway. To stabilize the heavier bullets 160 to 200 grn.

Does anyone know if you can add weight to the rear stock? I handled an SPS today and with the heavy barrel and really light stock it felt extremely muzzle-heavy. Adding some lead to the rear stock would balance it out nicely and tame it down to pussycat level to shoot.
