Finding the PSS in the shop locally got me thinking. Which would be better, the PSS or the Model 70 Stealth. Does anyone have both? If you have one or the other please post you comments.

PSS is supposedly more accurate out of the box then win mod 70

I personally own a Remington 700 (with the nifty 5R "mil-spec" barrel), but I have heard from RKI's on Sniper Country and The Firing Line that the Stealth shoots very, very well. Use the search function for "Stealth".

In fact, a used Stealth is snapped up within the day in the equipment exchange of Sniper Country.

Another good site to check out is Sniper's Hide.

schapman43, sir I have both rifles. Both are stock, with just some crown work. Both have same Leupold vari-x III scope, and I only shoot Fed 168&175 out of them. I get a slightly better group with the 175's w/ the Stealth. There are more accessories for the PSS but you wouldn't go wrong with the Stealth.

Is it worth having one in .223? Would I be better off with a accurized AR-15?

That sir would depend on your application. Personally I prefer the 308 because I shoot targets and chucks from long distance. I also shoot CMP matches at 1000yds w/ a stock Colt.
BTW, get the hinged floorplate, the mags suck.

I already have a 308 stick and was looking for something in .223.

Go with the Stealth. I have a PSS in .223 (and .308) and it can't compare to the .308. I've had both worked on by Hart rifles (they did their basic accuracy package on 'em). The .308 is good for 5 shots all touching at 200yds all day if I do my part with Black-Hills 175s. The .223 is lucky to get a 1-1.5" group at 100 yds (I've tried Black-Hills 69's,75's, and 55's...I'm getting a little frustrated). Although my .308 is only about two years older than my .223, it just seems to be put together better. I've heard nothing but praise for the Stealth.

I have the Remington 700 LTR (Light Tactical Rifle) in both 223 and 308. I have also owned a PSS in 308 and have put about 300 rounds through it. These rifles have all been tack drivers for me right out of the box. I can cover my groups with a quarter at 100 yards consistantly. They all did great at 300 yards + shooting prarie dogs as well.

Go with the Remington, you won't be disappointed. If you are, you can ship the rifle to me. I will nurture it for you.

Also, (as some guys on sniper country say) consider this. Look how many people are selling their PSS's right now and how little Stealth's you see for sale. They're not selling 'em cuz they shoot realllly well.
Just sumfin to think about.

I spent a lot of time last November researching which stock .308 bolt to buy for a reasonable price. It came down to the Win Model 70 Stealth or the Remington 700P (PSS). I wanted the Stealth because of supposed better quality, heavier barrel, possible to use longer handloads in the magazine, and it cost less. I simply could not find one. I settled for a Rem 700P and like it, although I cannot get it below .9 inch at 100 yds with handloads. Supposedly Winchester was out of production for about a year on the Stealth until recently (what a way to run a business - straight out of manufacturing circa mid-1800s!), and they will be available in the fall per Win customer service.

I think I've decided to work out some kind of trade for it. I already have the VS and Sendero so I might as well get a .223 stick based on the same action etc. Less rifles to learn I guess that will mean that I need 3 Badger Ordnance Trigger Guards, 2 Bases, 2 Sets of Rings, 3 Recoil Lugs, 3 McMillan A4 stocks, and two scopes.....
