Everybody is going to give you a different opinion on this one. Everybody is going to probably tell you it is a good caliber but it is a crappy stock on the SPS models. With that said, I owned a 7mm Rem Mag with an SPS model stock, never had any problems with it and it shot great. I sold it so I can buy a Sendero with the stainless fluted barrel and HS stock. I don't know what kind of shooting you're going to be doing, but unless you are going to be shooting a lot of rounds and really warming up the barrel, I would think the SPS would be fine. I kinda have my eye on a 22-250 SPS Varmint.
