    just got a new 243 in a remington 700 sps varmint and have read a lot on needing to free float the barrel(has a factory pressure point built in the stock tip) and I will remove material to float it but.....glass or pillar for the rest?? thanks for the opinions.....

    The SPS stocks are not very good so I would recomend shooting it first. If it shoots ok leave
    it alone. Sometimes removing the tip pressure will hurt accuracy on sporter weight barrels
    so try it first.

    The best thing to do is to replace the Tupperware stock with a better one and do a pillar bed
    on it (Pillars and a good bedding job).

    You can find a good laminate stock for about $150.00 or less that will solve the problem.
