I agree. Plus you get a finished action instead of that damned bead blasted pseudo-parkerized crap that Remington does to the SPS. The action feels like it has sand in it etc. Save the dough and step up to a true 700. As to scopes; a Leupold VXII 3-9 X 40 is right around $300. It's bright enough to see WAY past shooting light and is the best value out there IMO. The windage and elevation are accurate and repeatable so you even save money on expensive sight in with hunting ammo. I love a scope that moves 3" right with 12 clicks and no change in elevation, or vice-versa.
