Question About Rem 700 SPS Varmint & Action

I have a Remington 700 SPS Varmint in .308.

The other day I went to the gun shop and asked him for a Picatinny style mount for my US Optics. I told him it was a Remington 700 SPS Varmint in .308, but I think he handed me the wrong mount. The mount he handed me was for a regular or Long Action.

Is the .308 a short action?

Yes. the Remington 700 in .308 is a "short action"

OK. I'll take it back tomorrow. Thanks.

The rail didn't look right on there. It was about 1 inch longer.
