Well I am back from overseas...the time when a man's thoughts turn to "OK, what can I buy first?" I have owned various types of firearms in my past, but I have never had a rifle I could tinker with in a "quest for accuracy". To this end I think I will get a 700 SPS Tactical (I know there are better solutions out there, but it is the optimal solution for me right now). The issue I have is not in the rifle choice, it is with the improvements after the purchase. I shuddered when I checked the prices for a really good stock to put under her (Mcmillan A5, Tactical Manners etc). I know you have to pay to play, but holy s***, the stock costs more than the original complete gun. Looking to stretch as much performance outta the gun that I can, but not breaking the bank in the process (want to keep total cost below 2k after all the mods (Falcon Menace 4-18, badger base and rings, harris BP, GA precision work with badger FTE and DM) so you can see I will be already be crowding 1700. Dont HAVE to replace the stock, but from all the reviews I have read that is the shortfall on the production gun. And of course I don't HAVE to have the gun, but we all know how that goes1 Any replacement stock advice from some long range shooters amongst the brotherhood? I have a feeeling I will just have to choke the A5 down in the end. Thanks in advance!
