Remington Model 700 SPS Varmint 84218 308 Winchester

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The Remington SPS Varmint does exactly what it was designed to do - deliver excellent accuracy. You would be hard pressed to find a production rifle that is capable of greater practical accuracy than the SPS Varmint. There is a trade-off - the rifle is heavy, but not as heavy as the SPS Tactical by a few ounces. The balance is different, however, and the SPS Varmint doesn’t handle as well offhand as the Tactical. Off the bench, it is a joy to fire.

The Remington's cheek rest is a good design feature. The SPS Varmint showed good fit and finish. The stock fit the rifle okay, and the SPS Varmint is quite accurate.
Dual sling swivels added to the rifle's versatility.
While not expensive, the Barska scope on the Varmint proved fine for our accuracy bench work.
