    Remington 308 Tactical rifles are 1 in 12 twist. You have to go Savage to get 1 in 10 twist.

    Yes it is a 1-12" twist on the sps-tactical. The sps-tact and sps-varmit have the same barrel. The tactical is just shorter. The tactical has a different stock than the varmit. To me the stocks on both are junk. Well, I guess I shouldn't be that mean, but they are not that great. I would bed and free-float the barrel or get a new stock. At least thats what a lot of guys have done on these forums including myself. My groups shrunk considerably after changing stocks and free floating the barrel.

    My 20" is a 1-10" (according to the add and the box that it came in) and came with the Hogue stock. I bought mine at Budsgunshop.com, and they advertise their 20"s as 1-10's and the 26"s with 1-12".
