Remington® Model 700™ SPS™ Varmint Rifle
Excellent rifle, great value.
Purchased this rifle at Orlando, Florida store. Had already done research and got sale price plus rebate from Remington Arms. Got great customer service from gun pros there, and good suggestions about scope mounts and Nikon 4X12 Scope that was also on sale and got points in rewards card that made discount even better. Rifle shoots 1/2 to 1 inch groups at 100 yards with PMC .223 Rem55 grn fmjbt factory ammo all day long. Can't wait to try handloads in this rifle. However, got this straight from Remington Arms, DO NOT SHOOT 5.56 NATO ROUNDS in this rifle or you will void warranty!

As good as it gets, off the shelf
I have both this rife, and an earlier model of the same rifle. I have shoot 10 shot, one hole groups, at 100 yards with both using hand loaded 168 grain Sierra HPBT Matchkings. The best group mic'd .310.
Unless you want to build a custom gun, based on the 700 action, you wont find a more accurate gun.

I purchased this rifle in the store and after research put a Leupold VX-3L 3.5-10x50 scope on it. After more than 25 years of shooting nothing but handguns I was shooting 1" MOA groups the first time on the range. This is a nail driver to be sure. I am very happy with Remington's quality--this is my second 700 in my lifetime--and love the bull barrel. All I need now is a hunting buddy and a good place to go seduce some coyotes and bobcats. Will likely try it out on some hogs with the right ammo.

Shoots .625" groups with the Hornady Whitetail 150 grn. Very little recoil. I love the stock on this gun. The only problem is the trigger. The x-mark is bad. If you want to buy this gun go ahead and get a timmeny trigger for it. I did and now it's nice.
