    Rem 700 SPS in .243 Win

    I just purchased a Rem 700 SPS Varmint in .243 Win and the stock that came on the rifle is a big disappointment.

    What stock would you recommend to replace the one that came with the rifle?

    Thanks in advance for your recommendation

    It is not bedded. It is not free floated.

    It would be cheaper to just bed the stock you have and float the barrel yourself. And while you have it apart, change the trigger.

    Sps model comes with the plastic tupperware stock thats not good for anything. Lots of makers of stocks depending on what you want to spend, such as manners, McMillan, hs percision. I put a bell and carlson on my and threw the sps stock in the garbage, next was a timney calvin elite trigger.

    The SPS Tactical I bought had the Houge overmolded stock on it and was flimsy, put a Bell&Carlson m40 on it and have no complaints and yes a Timney trigger was installed also.

    H.S. Precision/Remington take offs. A few on Ebay right now. That's what I did on the two I have.

    I purchased one of these for my .308, and was very happy with it.

    A recent study found the average Canadian walks about 900 miles a year. Another study found Canadians drink, on average, 22 gallons of beer a year. That means, on average, Canadians get about 41 miles to the gallon. Kind of makes you proud to be Canadian, doesn't it??!!
