    A Practical Bolt Gun for Budget Minded 700 SPS AAC SD

    I was thinking there must be this question out there.,.... A rig that isn't over the top but a rifle that doesn't compromise quality...This is my version of not a budget but a practical rig that fits all around uses. Frankly I don't like using the "Sniper Rifle" Buzz Phrase.... However it's what...

    Review my Remington 700

    Remington 700 SPS Varmint .308 I bought this Remington 700 earlier this year and its intended use was for target shooting. After reading the boards for awhile I decided the first thing to do was change the stock. The factory stock is cheap and hurts accuracy. I replaced it with a Bell and...

    Twist Rate for .308

    Hi all, I purchased an SPS Tactical with a 20" 1 in 12 twist a few months ago and while I love the gun so far it seems like every internet forum is completely swayed to the AAC-SD with the 1 in 10 twist. When I purchased it, I was under the impression that the 1 in 12 was the better of the...

    What of the R700 SPS Varmint?

    I'm really intrigued by the R700 models. And I'm having a tough time choosing an affordable one that can shoot 1000yrds effectively. I've been recomended the SPS Varmint over the VTR. And Did some research. I like the SPS better. The barrel isnt of that new triangle cut crap. And it's got a 26"...

    SPS Tactical vs XCR compact tactical?

    Can anybody give me a range report on either of these? How well do the SPS shoot out of the box? I,m selling my DPMS and going to a bolt rifle. I can spend about 1500 on both rifle and optics and I'd like to spend more on the optic. So if the SPS shoots well to start out I'll go with it and...

    .243 twist ? Rem SPS Varmint

    I'm pondering the Remington SPS Varmint in a .243, which comes with a 26" 9 1/8" twist barrel. It seems like 1-8 is the way to go, but would the Rem factory barrel likely be O.K. with the 105/107gr range of bullets? Down the road I could always have a new barrel put on, but I'm thinking of the...

    Have one sitting here about to be sent to the smith to fit up a #7 Broughton. I'm scared to shoot it because if it shoots well I will prob put the build on hold. This wouldn't be a bad idea because I need to move up in scopes instead of building another rifle. Question is are any of you guys...
