You must be thinking of the 700 SPS Tactical.

Oops, you're partially right, i was thinking of the tactical, but the SPS Varmint still retails 620.

only bad thing about the SPS .223 I had was it only had a 1/12 twist no wear near as accurate as my r-15 reminigton 1/9 twist.
I would have kept it but it was not that accurate past 100 yards even with my re-loads. the r-15 out preforms it hands down.

This is the cost of a varmint SPS which is what this was

This is the cost of a standard SPS,

The varmint gun is about a $50 upcharge from the standard model.

And no, $699-749 is not the price of a SPS varmint, that is the price Gander Mountain is wanting for them. Gander Mountain is notorious for having higher prices on their website than other stores, and even their store themselves. They are also guilty of price gouging.

A quick search of gun broker finds a varmint in just about any caliber from $530-750 while a standard SPS from $450-700, supporting the roughly $30-50 price difference from Remington.

The twist doesn't affect accuracy, it affects what weight bullet it will properly stabilize. If you try to use bullets that shoot good with a 1/9 twist chances are they won't work for shit in a 1/12 twist barrel.

We are having a spirited conversation on how to determine fair market value for a used fire arm.

twist affects accuracy. yes bullet weight affects things also They go hand in hand.
If you want a better shooting gun the 1/9 twist is better at least for me. I can shoot a wider varity of bullet types and weights and styles and the accuracy varies little untill I start shooting over 200yards. It takes less messing around when you have a gun that stabalizes the bullets faster and that is exactly what a higher rate of twist does.
but everyone has an opinion thats mine and you have yours.

Mine is not an opinion, it is a fact. You want to chose a twist that will spin the bullet just fast enough to make it stabilize. If you have too slow of a twist it won't shoot for shit but the same happens when you over spin a bullet. You pick the twist of your barrel for the size of bullet that you intend on shooting. I would rather have a gun with too fast of a twist than too slow because it won't affect accuracy AS MUCH but personally I would rather just do it right and match the twist to the bullet.
