Re: varmint rifle

When you decide to reload, I would highly recommend you spend the extra money and buy Lapua brass. Lapua brass alone will help your accuracy. Regarding accuracy, my friend has a .223 SPS, and he has shot some pretty good groups at 100 yards. His best 5 shot group, at 100 yards, was .5 moa. However, he does not consisatnly shoot these types of groups with this rifle. He stated his average was more like .7 to .8 moa at 100 yards with his .223 SPS. He plans to pull the nasty factory tuperware stock off and put a new Manners T4A Stock on it, plus bed it and put a Jewel trigger on it too . These upgrades should really make a difference in the accuracy department. The good thing about the Remington SPS Rifle, it allows those on a budget to be able to purchase a rifle. And when they can afford to do so, they can add top quality parts to it to make it even better.

Re: varmint rifle

I bought a Remy 700 SPS Stainless in 243 last October. Bought some factory Winchester Super X 100 SP just to get some brass. After sighting in, made a trhee shoot group at 100 yards that I covered with a dime. Have photos but do not know how to attach it to this thread. I then reloaded some with 70 gr BT and up to the max with IMR 4350. My best group with an out of the box Remy was a slightly oblong hole. Again have photos but can not figure out how to attach them.
Great rifle, and love the 243.
