well i think i will look for an old beat up 700 to start with and if in that process i come across a pre 64 that i can afford ill snatch it up and go from there, but for now it looks like it will be easier for me to get ahold of a 700 action for around 300, and then get a aftermarket heavy barrell from someone like kreiger (yes i know about the backlog) and then pay for someone who knows what there doing to blueprint and glass bed it, and i figure i can do the rest from there.

^^ Nothing wrong with that plan. If you are going with a Magnum action though, and you are paying for the blue print, have them drill your screw holes out to #8's at the same time. A little beefier and more stable on that big magnum for your expensive glass.

Good luck...

Dude as the FTF Remington 700 FANBOY leader. I am going to say dump that thought. Get your self a Savage Action from a buddy of mine on another board. Jewell Triggers by GREAT SCOTT Shooters Products

The savage action is just as popular and cost less plus with a barrel nut wrench and a set of go no-go gauges you can have a switch barrel at a fraction of the cost. You can get it in the .473" bolt face and that opens the doors wide open to any cartridge in the world with a .473" head diameter. (308, 30-06). I can get all the same stocks for either action and you can get the savage action with a right or left port I believe. Having the port is much better as it makes the action much more stiff that having the entire top of the action milled away.

Strongly suggest staying away from the gun shows right now...cant even get a Ruger 10-22 for a fair price in them. The "governments gonna get you" mentality is still on a rampage so they gun show dealers are raping and pillaging on their pricing.

went to a near by gun shop today just to poke around, he had a new Remington 700 (sps tactical i think its called) its a 700 rem in .308 with 20 inch heavy barrel 3 # trigger and hogue over molded stock he wanted about 680 for it and it seemed like a fair price. Im curious to know how accurate that gun should be, because if it can be easily accurized i might just go with it to start. Are these guns free floating and glass bedded? do they need to be? What do you think?
