I have been wanting to get into some long range shooting and recently got a Millett LRS1 scope for Christmas. The scope is way over kill for anything under 500yds and I can't mount it on my 98 Mauser, .243 so I've eyballing some long range rifles on the interwebz. Well, I found a deal that I could not pass up today. It's not exactly what I had in mind but it should be enough to get started with considering the limited amount of real long range time I am going to actually see.
While at one of my favorite LGSs pricing the Savage rifles the owner said that he had a never fired Rem. 700, .308win on consignment that the owner wanted to sell at $650.00. It is the SPS Tactical with a 20"threaded barrel, Ghillie green Hogue overmolded stock and adjustable trigger.
As I said, it just wasn't what I was looking for but damn it was nice!
The owner of the Remy called while I was there and I heard the shop owner tell him that I was looking at it but it wasn't really what I wanted. He handed me the phone and the voice at the other end said. "Give me $550.00 and shoot the hell out of that thing since I can't!" So, it came home with me!

If it came from the factory with the 20" threaded barrel it sounds like it is the SPS Tactical AAC-SD:
That is a great choice as it has the faster 1:10 twist as opposed to the slower 1:12 on the 700P.
Not to chase you away from here, but there is great info on long range shooting at both snipercentral.com and snipershide.com.

Well you can get a new one for almost $650 so he really wasn't doing you a favor by lowering the price. Congrats tho.
