Man I recieved my new remington catalog and the new Varmiter with that ventilated composite stock rocks.

Calibers go from the .17hmr out to a 308

I'd love to buy my "Daughter" one in .308 hehehehe We'll see.

If anyone gets the chance to hold,shoot or any experience with one please let me know.

i had one in my hands last weekend at the gunshow here in town.... honestly, the plastic stock is what you would expect ... feels cheap, looks cheap..sounds hollow toward the butt....i'm sure it would do well enough out the box but, personaly, i'd replace it with either a HS, or at the least a bell and carlson....just my thoughts on the matter... [edit] .... the new tactical r700 comes with a bell and carlson stock, if your willing to shell out the extra cash for a "tactical" ... i'm not sure if there is a big diffrence in pricing, but if things hold true there will be.

the Varmiter has the same barrel as the 700P. the differences are the stock and trigger. the PSS comes with a fully adjustable trigger. if you want a very very accurate rifle with a varmit contour barrel buy it.

Yeah, sounds like a great gun. I am getting a 700P .308 for myself and was thinking about a 700SPS (less expensive) for my son. If he then gets serious, we can upgrade it with an HS Precision stock that will float the barrel and a new trigger, for example.

The new SPS Varminter looks great.  The other Remingtons are great too, but when you can get the Varminter on www.gunbroker.com in the sub 500 dollar range, I can deal with the cheap stock.  Besides, with the accuracy posted by the gun magazines, what does it matter what kind of stock it has?

Probably doesn't matter much. I just want as accurate a rifle as possible just for the principle of it. I guess I just love the sport. Recently, one of the sniper websited, I believe snipercentral.com reviewed the Remington700SPS in .308 and found it very good. The stock cannot be free floated,however. They fired it and then changed the stock to one that was free floating. There was a measurable improvement but probably not enough to matter to a deer hunter at 100-200 yard shots.

Pyro - I saw the 700 LSS for the .280 and want one as well! Love that gray laminated stock look with the all SS. I am going to be getting one as soon as someone can convince me of the .280 rem's performance as an all around caliber....

well i am quite impressed with my .280 in a ruger m77 i havent killed anything with it but its a round that is sandwiched between two of the most popular calibers in the world the .270 and the 30-06, performance is comparable to both, its more versitile than the .270 and very close to the 30-06 i cant wait till bear season opens maybe i will get a tag and a chance to put a bruin down with the .280 but i really wanna use my new 673 guide rifle in 6.5 rem mag.
