At the moment I'm waiting to start my build project on my Remington 700 in 338 Win Mag. If all goes as planned I'll have a nice long range sledge hammer for steel shooting. Give us a range report when you get the chance to take that SPS out for a trial run.
The rifle has a hogue stock on it thats real nice.. I have no plan replace the stock... BUT, if I did.. i would like something with urban camo.. or urban tiger camo...

That can be easily accomplshed on a synthetic stock (as long as its not rubbery) or wood with a simple process called Hydro-Dip. Check out their website Hydro-Dip.com, plenty of camo patterns and several of them you can adjust for a custom color and look. The stuff acts as a sealer on wood and is tough as all get out, since its used on automotive stuff as well.

No problem, I plan on using the stuff on my extra fiberglass stock for my Remington 700. Just havent settled on a pattern yet.

The Hogue overmolded stocks are junk. They flex when using a bipod and will change the POI. I recently purchased the Rem 5R, what a rifle for the money, great stock with no need for replacement and accurate as all get out. 308 of course.

Don't fall for the hype on the triangular barrels either.
