Depends how much you are paying for it and what you want to use it for......

For hunting the heavy barrel might make it too.... heavy :wink:

But for target shooting or tactical uses.... its perfect

for match shooting its probably the best in its price range... but not what you want to be shooting....

give us more info and we will give a better answer...........

Just my $.02

I guess it was stupid of me to ask a question with as little information as I did

I would use it for hunting, I dont really mind the weight. I would also do some target shooting pretty hardcore

Why would it not be good for matches?

and I guess tactically it would be nice to have a long range rifle against the russians or terrorist or who ever decides to invade :)

Check out the 700 vs. Is is the exact same rifle with a hunting stock. Just as accurate but less expensive.

If you are interested in the Rem rifle, go for it. I like Rem actions and have always had success with my 700 once I found the loads that it likes. Since money is tighter now, I purchased a Savage 10FV with the Accutrigger, it is a nice rig and I'd recommend it as another option to consider.

what kind of hunting will you do? still hunting ion mountains or out west where you will take a long shot?
get the Remington LTR with 20" tube if you also want to shoot match or get a Remington 7400

Heya, I just purchased a Rem 700 SPS 20" 30-06 it's light, I've gone hiking with the thing on my back and haven't noticed it. I also us it for target practice. Yes the thinner barrel does heat quicker (4-5 shots before cigarette break) but at the same time it does cool down quick. I LOVE remington's recoil pad on the butt, it's like Dr. Schoel's for the shoulder.
