the is a new remington 700 sf or stainless fluted on the remington site its "new for 2009" and no one ive seen on the net has one yet and it looks like a good rifle but i dont no much about the accuracy, cost ect

if anyone has one or know of one can you give me some information on the rem sf

but there a "sv-sf-II" (Varmint Synthetic Stainless Fluted) continues this prestigious pedigree. which i belive is better but cost about 2k ($2000)

Its just another money maker. Its all based off of the basic 700 action with modified barrels for different things. Suppressors for varmits.....come on. You can get a 5R SS cheaper. You can even build one cheaper then 2k Including the bull barrel contour, or any for that matter and a any stock and machine work.

Its the same pretty much as the SPS Varmint, same stock by the looks of it, just a stainless barreled action with a fluted barrel. The VSSF has a HS Stock, thats why it costs more. What you could do is grab the Varmint SF, and then put a 700P take off stock from Mike R at Tactical Operations. That costs about $250 and then you would have a VSSF but without the high price tag.

Yeah 2,000 seems like a lot for a gun, but if that's what you want then go for it. However, it probably won't shoot better than say an SPS Tactical with a 700P take off stock - for less than half the price.
