Well, I went ahead and just ordered the 700 SPS Tactical this morning. Everything I've read says that the 6 inch difference with the varmint model will only give you a difference of about 60fps between the two.
Granted, I plan on mostly using it to punch paper... but I will occiaisionally take it out hiking to some remote areas up north and stuff. It seems like the compact size should still give me plenty of power and accuracy. I will probably end up doing a replacement stock as well.
I'm sure you'll see me posting in here a bit more now... surely there will be some questions. Excited to get into a new realm of guns...
