I would opt for a dedicated .22lr upper as opposed to a conversion. I have used the Ceiner kit and couldn't get through a full magazine without swearing. Dirty, clean, hot, cold, different mags, nothing helped.

If price is no object, .22 Uppers

Otherwise, CZ, DPMS, Model 1 Sales and Spikes Tactical all offer dedicated .22lr upper.

I'm running a sps-v in 22 250... but if I had the chance to go back, I'd probably would get the .308 (or 223)... you can buy in bulk for cheap!... no deals like that for 22 250.

Well a lot depends on your budget and intended use. As many gunsmiths like to say, how much accuracy can you afford?

The biggest difference for me has always been in a stock change. The factory plastics one have too much flex in them and the wood ones are not stable enough if your intent is a target gun If I had no other money for upgrades even an inexpensive Bell&Carlson Carbelite with a quick bedding job will probably cut your groups in half. For a few more $$$ their Medalist model is hard to beat.

The old factory triggers are better for adjusting than the new ones but either can be gotten down to a reasonable point and if you do a litte research there are instructions all over the place. If not a Gunsmith should be able to do it for just a few bucks. With a little more money an eftermarket trigger is a swift and easy upgrade. Do not understimate the value of good bases and rings and a properly installed scope.

That is about it for hunting or casual target work. At that point you should be sub MOA. The jump from there to guaranteed .25 MOA can get expensive so that is where most folks stop.

Next in line are blueprint and true the action, rebarrel with a match barrel and good bottom metal. You now have another $1,000 invested in the gun...

Really there are lots of stock makers out there that are using wood for benchrest and long range stocks. Some are using just 3 or 4 layers as well.

I was refering to Remington standard wood stocks. The only exceptions are the laminated (which is not exactly wood in it's natural state) stocks and the ones they use for their 40X's and in my experience 40X in synthetic stocks will on average out shoot the wood stocked ones. I guess I should have been more specific.

The only thing I have done to my .308 SPS is to lap the lugs and drop the thing into a B&C Medalist A3 stock. The rifle shoots better than I am able to most of the time. I have adjusted old and new style triggers without any problems whatsoever. The factory SPS trigger breaks very cleanly at around 3lbs which is where I want it, as the gun does field work. The extractor is a non issue with me. If it ever breaks I will install the Sako type extractor, but if it ain't broke, it doesn't need fixing. Without the mods I got a 5 shot group of 11/16"@ 100 with carefully prepped ammo. After the mods I fired a 3/8" group @ 100 with ammo that was simply put together without weighing cases, trimming to uniform length, or uniforming primer pockets. I think I can do a little better on a good day, but that is if I have a good day, which is not always a sure thing.
