Get a decent bi pod, one that is tall enough to shoot of of sitting or a set of shooting sticks. I have the sps in 7mm. I put a 6-9" bi pod for shooting prone. I also ordered another barrel for it to replace but won't have it till december

Ditch the bipod. Use a rest on a bench, and use shooting sticks or your pack in the field. Bipods have a tendency to bounce on a bench, and in the field shooting off your pack works great unless you need to get up high, in which case the bipod is useless, and you'll need to use the sticks, anyway. You'll get tired of lugging around the bipod.

The Butler Creek scope caps are fine, but they break somewhat easily. But they're cheap, so it's not too bad.

I like the Mag-xtender on my 700. A few extra rounds for a small price and looks pretty cool.

For plinking, get a spotting scope, bipod for bench /prone, and learn to reload.

I don't hunt, so I can't offer too much, but I'd suggest a sling.

Depending on the of hunting (sitting in a blind or stand, or long trekking) get scope caps, butler creek are pretty much available everywhere, although I've been trying to find Weaver Polar Scope Caps because they transition to yellow tint see thru for low light shooting. And a solid sling for your use, maybe a biathalon sling for long hikes, or a traditional leather sling for "slinging up" standing shots. I'd suggest a cheek rest, maybe a Karstan kydex one or the ever popular duct tape and foam so you can get a proper cheek weld. my 2cents
