Remington SPS Varmint
 
Looking into getting one of these in 22-250. Seems like a good gun for the money. They say it's modeled after the ADL, but does it have a drop plate in it? Thanks for any help anyone might have.

Mine does.

Let me google that for you

I have one in .243 and it shoots extremely well. I replaced the stock, though, which I hated.

I have shot some .25 moa groups with mine in 308 with my handloads. Changing the stock is a must for accuracy though.

Yeah, I did a little closer investigation on the drop plate so I like that. I've heard a thing or two about the stock not being real stupendous.

Also have thought about the Remington VLS, with the laminate stock, has this been found to perform better?

I was just at the store and looked at an SPS Varmint, and I know that the stock isn't optimal, but not as bad as some I've seen. There were some other brands, which I am not going to name to refrain from turning this thread into a cat fight, that were certainly way way worse than the SPS. I think it's a pretty fair gun for the money. Probably a good slayer, maybe not target shooting quality, but a good slayer for coyotes and whitetails.

Yes, it will slay things.

And that is what I am concerned with. I think if I was shooting a lot of rounds and got the barrel heated up, I'm sure I would see the difference. I have an SPS 7mm that has a little different stock than the varminter and although it isn't the highest of qualities, it is a killing machine. The barrel and actions are still great so that makes a big difference.

You mean you might get the barrel heated up hunting....or at the range?

Go with the VLS much better looking rifle. My VLS will whack the hell out of ground hogs out to 350 yards.
