Sometime back I bought a lightly used Remington 700 SPS in 30-06 from a forum member. It came with a broken scope and a Harris Bipod. Changed out the scope and shot it for a while and it was a dang nice shooter. I'm never satisfied though. I saved some money and picked up a Shilen barrel in the white, 26 inches with a 1 in 10 twist. I also picked up a Holland recoil lug. Saved some more pennies and bought a Choate Ultimate Varmint Stock for it. After market stocks for long action rifles aren't as plentiful as stocks for short action rifles. I found a gunsmith that would do the work for what I could afford. I had him true the action and install the recoil lug and barrel. I also had him shorten the barrel to 22 inches and recrown the muzzle. I installed the barreled action into the stock myself, added a new Nightforce 20 MOA mount and put the old scope back on. Gave everything a quick coat of paint until I can afford a Cerakote job. After 50 rounds break in as suggested by Shilen, I shot a couple 5 inch groups at 800 yards. Still playing with the loads. I'm a happy camper. Here's the Remington. Hopefully, this will be the last thing an elk sees except for the bright flash.
