Remington 700 SPS tactical

Anyone have this rifle? Its the 308 with the houge over mold stock and the 20" bull barrel. I like this lil rifle and might have to get me one.

Any thoughts or comments on it as well.
I want me a 700 to play with in 308. Any suggestions?

Yea I think I'm gonna hold off on fixing up my 270 A-Bolt and get me a 700/308 for deer huntin and I like the shortness of it.

Anyone have experience with the x mark trigger? How is it?

Re: Remington 700 SPS tactical

its pretty nice for what it is.. externally adjustable.

I wouldnt have any concerns to change it out. Heck my cheap R700 .270 has the factory trigger adjusted and it does just fine.

From what I've read and heard the old 700 trigger is better than the new one.

Jewel Triggers are $250 to replace...if you can't get a good smith to get it down to 2.5 lbs for hunting...

The jewels get down to 1/8 ounce

depends on whether you wanna shoot targets or shoot animals

I know plenty of folks who can make that Rem 700 trigger pretty nice...still I am having a couple Jewels put on a few

Get the 700...try it out...Get the jewel trigger when funds allow

SPS Tactical

I have one in 223 and it is topped with a 10x42 tactical scope. It is a tack driver! Have it set at 100yds for varm. and it will do better than 1/2" MOA off the bench. ( With Hand Loads) of course!! Go ahead and get one you will love it!

dhollis,

Ive got one and I love it!!! Its a sweet shooting rifle right out of the box...its my favorite rem 700 ive got (i got 4 of em). Im not into reloading and it'll shoot under MOA all day long with factory ammo. Ide love to see what it would do with some good hand loads!

Re: Remington 700 SPS tactical

Alright they have a nother model with a threaded barrel on it anyone have this one?

I might have to get this one and get a supressor for it and do alil hog hunting:)

will there be a huge difference in the 1-10 twist and the 1-12 twist when I will be shooting it with out the suppressor for a while and most of the time?

1:10 twist will be the happy medium for the heavy sub sonic rounds but will still shoot good with the fast 168grs and such.

I just got a Savage .308 barrel im gonna get chopped down and threaded for my stevens rifle. its a 1:10 twist.

Speaking from experience a 1:12 barrel with a can is a disaster! 1:10 is ok with a 200 grain round nose but not great. 1:8 is your best bet but you will not be able to buy it over the counter. If you go with a 1:12 twist of greater dont be surprised if you knock the end of your can out. The bullet was all over the place with a 1:12 in a 700 action .308.

Re: Remington 700 SPS tactical

without the can and the 1:12 twist it would do nasty damage on a target 50yds away :D
Gotta look on the brighter side

The way I was looking at it, I just didnt want Jay to trash a can that was still brand new!

Re: Remington 700 SPS tactical

dock rocker is absolutely correct...learned all that the hard way. Im gonna have a 1:8 twist barrel made for my encore...for a "suppressor only" gun

Its kinda hard to combine the two and both of them be really accurate
