ive come to to the truth. after man months of being confused ive come to 1 resolution. ive just recieved my fathers remington 700 sps in 308 and this will be my shtf rifle. i live in sc so most stuff here is close range( at least in the upstate it is). i really like this gun. im not sure what to do next probabley buy more ammo. love this gun very nice action.
