I love my Remington 700 SPS Tactical AAC-SD. Any version of the Model 700 is perhaps one of the better values on the rifle market. Here’s a review by Frank Winn in America’s 1st Freedom:
While the first priority in anything firearm-related is serious attention to safety, the principal remaining hazard is too much advice. Shooting communities are just that welcoming, despite ugly media insinuations—especially recently—to the contrary. It’s a “nonsurprise” of perhaps classic proportion, then, that this is how the Remington 700 first came to our attention many years ago. Especially if resources were modest, the one-ragged-hole types pretty near all agreed on where to start: an M700 in .308 Win. Some 56 years after it first appeared (1962), our present sample indicates that such a recommendation would still be wise to follow.
You wouldn’t have to settle for that same rifle by any means. Slim-barreled, wood-clad beauties are still available, and in almost every useful caliber you can think of (17 by our count). Moreover, robustness and out-of-the-box accuracy have drawn many fans and applications over the years. Military and law enforcement variations are plentiful, and regular-folk applications all bespeak the original, ideal qualities—accuracy, reliability, durability.
Our model 700 SPS Tactical AAC-SD is a case in point. The core competencies so much admired from Day One are alive and well, but the prospect of a disappointing compromise never threatened less. If you’re after a modern, versatile bolt gun, an SPS or other 700 variant is punching, as the saying goes, well above its weight.
