Hello all, I'm new to this forum but not m700s. I am in the process of getting together a project gun of sorts. Mod 700. .308, I'm looking to build a "Pratical Tactical" long range target/hunting rig. My goal is to be sub 1 MOA, Hunting capable and Water filled milk jugs @500 yds. I'll do the basic tune up needed to achieve this such as bolt lapping, bedding, and or restocking.([email protected] Medalist type stock) as needed. 3x9 scope and decent mounting as needed. My question is , Would a standard SPS sporter barrel be adaqute or or should one opt for the SPS varmint. Either way I am leaning towards cutting the tube to 22" Sorry for the long post and thanks for any input.
