New here....

Hello everyone.
Found this place today and had to join. I've been hunting for over 33 years, and dabbling with reloading for the last 5 or so. My latest purchase is a Remington 700 SPS Tactical and I'm looking to get some ideas oh how to set it up. Right now, its stock and wears a Zeiss 3X9X50, but I think thats going to change as soon as I swap a Leupold VXIII 6.5 X 20 thats on another gun.
Then I plan to get a Harris bipod and a better stock.
If anyone has any ideas or advice, please feel free to share!

Thanks!
Jimmy

welcome. sounds like you're on the right track. I would definately put the leupold VXIII on it along with the harris bi pod. What kind of stock are you thinking? I like McMillan or Manners (just my opinion)

Stock

I'm thinking about the H&S or Mcmillian. Havent made my mind up yet. I dont want a tactical looking stock, just want one that looks like a factory stock, but maybe one with a wider fore end. I like the factory hogue, but it just feels cheap and isnt stiff enough. I've even thought about doing something to stiffen it, maybe even bedding it, but dont know if I want to go thru that work on something I'm probably going to change out anyway.
I'm planning on painting the new one once I get it, I've painted about 4 of my guns, and a couple for my son and brother and they came out pretty good if I do say so myself. Its pretty easy, so I dont mind trying it on a new gun.

Thanks for the welcome guys, and I look forward to many more emails and possibly chats with yall
