All of my Remington 700 actions with Hart barrels, that are in H.S. Precision stocks and they have Jewell Triggers installed shoot pretty good.
Hmm Ive scoured the Remington site.. cant find their accuracy garuntee anywhere? Frank?

A regular .270 will take elk and moose (I know - I grew up on deer, elk, moose all taken with a.270Win and it will actually take most game: Google Jack Connor and 270) just fine, and the .270WSM is more potent. The 7mm and .308 calibers only really gain if you plan on shooting really heavy bullets (& at a distance). A poorly placed 180gr isn't any more effective than a poorly placed 130, and a properly placed 130gr is every bit as effective as a properly placed 180gr. 50 years ago you had to rely on heavier buillets as bullets design wasn't so great. with modern bullets you don't have to rely on starting weight anymore. The 270win is about 150fps slower in 130 & 140 gr than the 7mm magnum, and the .270WSM is equal or better velocity (and with better B.C.s), and both wind up with less felt recoil. You don't NEED a .308 caliber, let alone .308 (or bigger) magnum for any North American game. I love 7mm mags (my first rifle ever) and .308s, but you don't need them. And you could probably shave a few hundred off the price just buying a Howa and invest in a better scope.
The 270 WSM is a great round for deer. If you think you will ever shoot elk or bigger game I would go with the 7mm Mag or a Win 300 WSM.I had a Rem 700 BDL in 7mm Mag and used it for about 25 years. When I traded it off I got a Rem 700 SPS in 300 WSM and I couldn't believe how much lighter the 300 WSM was compared to my old wood Stocked 700 BDL 7mm Mag was. Have you checked out the weight difference between the Weatherby and Rem 700 in both the 7mm Mag and the 270 WSM?

And that would be an oxymoron
Would just be a Rem 700 sps, nothing special.

Frank, I thought everybody knew that "smiley-outta-here" was the universal messin with you signal. I guess I should have put LOL there too.
LOL... Hey DR, they (dabob, Eric & the gang) with the Hart & cut off barrel etc are just messing with us, with Grant encouraging them. They're just not being very nice right now.
