Re: Remington 700 SPS Varmint in .308 Win.

I have found a M700VS that is slightly used or I can get a new SPS Varmit. I would get into the SPS a little cheaper, but supposedly the VS has not been fired much at all. I know the HS is a better stock, but I would likely have it skim bedded anyway. So if I did that or I glassed the SPS or a Pillar bed/glass bed on the SPS if practical, would one stock then be as good as another in function? If so, I would at least know that the SPS has a new barrel. Thanks!

Do we all agree that the 1-10 would be better for 165gr. BT
through 175MK/178A-Max? I am looking at a M700VS with the 1-12 or the new SPS Var. with the 1-10. Thanks!

nomosendero,
After handling the SPS just yesterday, I can honestly say that the stock felt like a piece of crap that you'd find on a cheap BB gun. It may be perfectly functional, but it danged sure felt cheesy. I'm a fan of laminated wood stocks, though, so none of the plastic and fiberglass stocks really turn me on, regardless of quality or price.
If you're gonna be tinkering and upgrading in the future, though, you may as well get the cheaper one to start with....
