Remington SPS .243 replacing stock?

I have an aftermarket bedded stock for a Remington short action heavy barrel. My question is that I am going to buy a SPS in .243. I originally thought I would buy the varmint version because of the stock I already have for it. But after playing with it and seeing how heavy it is and that fact that I don't think I really need the heavy barrel, I am thinking about buying the standard SPS.

I know it will bolt in the stock but how much of a gap will there be in the forearm of the stock without the heavy barrel.

If anyone of you guys have experience with this it would be great to have some input.

I think your talking about A comp stock. You shouldn't have a problem with it. Good gap probably but that will just insure the barrel is well floated. If it's to much for you, you could fill it in with a bedding compound.

The gap is my question. I don't think it would bother me at all and like you said it would ensure complete free float for sure. That is what I was wondering about.

Thanks
