My New Junk

Remington 700 SPS Tactical in .308. Nothing special about it, but I love this thing!











I traded out the tall bipod for the Harris Bipod, added a $50 scope (that I got for $20). and a cheap mount/ring kit. I know the scope and rings will hold me back, but it will hold me over until I can afford the one I really want. It is holding zero alright best I can tell but I have only shot it once at 50 yards to start to sight it in.

I was hoping to go out to Alpine Saturday morning and go for 100 yards but the weather may keep me in bed, we will see.

Nice. Is that a .308?

You need to get a one piece base. Even if it is a cheap one, they are better than the two piece.

Duh, read the first sentence again....

Haha I edited the .308 part after I read your comment if that's what you were talking about.

I am looking at getting the Talley one piece base/rings. The ones that have separate front and back pieces, but are one solid piece for the "base" and the "ring". I have heard they are good. If not I will deff get a solid base, IMO the less possible parts to move the better.

My gunsmithing/modification skills are pretty non-existent at this point, but I think I might get a different stock for it later on, I have seen some I would love to try.

At this point I think need to work on my shooting more than anything, they gun will probably out shoot me for a while yet.

I'm not fond of the Houge stock it fells funny and dust sticks like a crazy, the Houge I have will soon be replaced with a stock from HS Precision.

Keep me in mind when you decide to upgrade that stock. That Hogue is far better than the stocker on my 700 SPS

The only way its better is if its a full length pillar bedded stock. If yours was propperly glass bedded it would be just as good.

SPST is only aluminum bedded at the pillars, not full length, but yeah I would rather have then a factory Remington stock.
I am with you though and if I was going synthetic would HSp or McMillan.

Iknow McMillan is good stuff but they seem a lil overpriced, unless you get something on their bargin page. It seems to me that since the military uses them they think it makes them worth more but thats just my opinion on the matter.
