This topic maybe discussed already, i couldn't find any threads related to this. So i apologise if been discussed. I'm interested and planning to buy the Remington 700 SPS Tactical bolt action (either the 223 or 308 caliber). Most probably i'm gettinf the 223 caliber as the ammo cheaper and i own an AR15 too. And planning to get this Leupold VX-3 3.5-10 x 40 scope. Is it good? Any recommendations or opinions? http://www.opticsplanet.net/leupold-vx3-35-10x40mm-rifle-scope.html And do i need these 2 items to put on the Remington 700? http://www.midwayusa.com/Product/98...elevated-base-remington-700-long-action-matte) http://www.midwayusa.com/Product/463702/leupold-1-qrw-quick-release-weaver-style-rings-matte-low Also last question, i seen some youtube videos, the Remington 700 SPS Tactical (223) caliber been suppressed. I couldn't find any sellers selling it with threaded barrel except the 700 SPS Tactical AAC-SD (308). Are those owners in youtube had their barrels threaded by gunsmiths or upgrading with aftermarket threaded barrels? Sorry for a lot questions. Mind me as i'm new and still learning towards this Bolt Action Rifle world. Thank you so much.
