Find an older used one, the new ones have bad QC issues. Or just get a Savage 110 action they are every bit as good as the 700 action and just as much aftermarket.

I have owned 2, and they were fine working guns. The 700's tend to be on the military side of the spectrum, meaning they are robust, heavy, with polymer stocks and no iron sights. Fit and finish is solid but not beautiful. (Notable exceptions are BDL, CDL, and some other gentleman hunter models) I think the SPS line makes the most sense for your stated goals, and does not cost too much.

I have a post on here where many people commented if you want to go read it. I am looking at the Remington 700 SPS SS 30-06 also for sport. The consensus is thst is a great gun for it. I was looking for something to start at 100 yards and go to 1000 yards if possible. Everyone has said that is a great gun. About $700 at Cabela's. But if you have time go read my post about 100 comments very helpful. Have a great day!!!

depends on how much you want to spend. a new synthetic stocked SPS is going to be about $550-600 new, depending where you buy it. plus you will need to purchase a scope. a new BDL or CDL walnut stocked rifle is going to be about $900 and up. plus scope unless you want to use the open sights.

of course, if you shop around the pawn shops and gun stores for a used M700, you can sometimes get a much better deal on nice used one, and sometimes already with a scope mounted. i have picked up used M700's with scopes for $200 or a little more.

set a budget and decide what you want.

There are a lot of Rem 700 models to choose from and some are going to be better at different things. My gun for in the woods is an old fashion walnut stock BDL in 30-06 with iron sights and a scope. My long range rifle is a Model 700 5R in .308, and for some that wouldn't be enough gun for the ranges they shoot. In my area it's more than enough. Figure out what you need in your area for hunting and then pick the model and caliber that's going to work best for you. After that just look around until you find the one you want and at the price you want.

I love my 700 in 30-06. It's my main hunting rifle. Accurate + dependable, all day long every day

Targets? Sighting in only at this point. Mine is not a bench rifle.

Rem 700 sure is one of the best hunting rifles in production. I would also advice you to buy an older one first.
