Such as building a rifle around the Rem 700 action, or going with a Savage 110 BA. I was looking at the 300 win mag or 338 Lapua (leaning more to the 300) and my price ceiling is about $2500. Help me please?
Here's some pics of my Remington 700 in .300 Win Mag with a trued action and a 28" barrel. Basically, I bought the cheapest Remington 700 rifle in .300 Win. Mag. they made, harvested the reciever, and threw everything else away.
It's a tack driver and I've had it out to 1400 yards at altitude. Probably could take it further at altitude before the bullet goes transonic, but havn't tried yet.
I've got more than $2500.00 into this rifle but I think you could get the
thing done for a tad under $3000.00, less the scope, if you choose different or eliminate a few componets for a build similar to this one.
