I'll add my SPS Tactical to the ranks. Mine is pretty standard .308 with Vortex Viper 6.5-20 x 44 BDC scope. I did modify the Hogue stock to fit the Magpul Bottom Metal Magazine Well though. I have a little CNC mill I used for the mod and that improved the functionality of the gun quite a bit for not a whole bunch of money! In fact, I had so much fun doing that little mod, I'm looking for other little things to improve :)

What model did you end up with? I like the jeweled bolt.
Doom:
I got the 700 SPS Tactical 6.5 Creedmoor 22" AAC (Model R84204). Barrel is a 5-R! Happy about that. Hope it shoots. Waiting on scope and rings. Took your advice and went with EGW 20 MOA rail. Stock is Hogue pillar bedded. But, I really like the feel of it. We'll see how it affects accuracy. Also, the trigger breaks at a little over three pounds. I like it and will leave it alone, at least for now. Thank you for your help.

Got it all put together. Range report is positive. Got sub-MOA with factory ammo. Very happy. I'd say the quality is still here with the new Remingtons. The 5R barrel works. Ready to hand load, but can't find "large rifle primers" anywhere (hen's teeth)!
