55,

Did some research and contacted a friend I know on the trigger you have. That is Remington's New X Mark Pro Trigger. He advised they came out with it in 2009 and it should be a good one. It can be adjusted down to a minimum of 2.5 LB. Trigger Pull. But I prefer to set them at a minimum of 3.5 Lbs. Can' wait to see her when you get it completed.

thanks 03 for the info. this trigger is a little different than my other remingtons. i looked at it a little closer last night, and it seems to have also three other adjustment screws with what looks to be lacquer over them. i will google some info on the x-mark triggers and see if i can learn a little more about them. i will keep everyone posted as the build progresses. thanks for encouragement.

well update on the rifle. ordered the recoil lug and reloading dies this weekend from Midway. ordered the 6.5mm-06 RCBS dies, so i am now fully commited to building in that caliber now! on a side note, i compared the ballistics of the 6.5mm-06 to the 6.5-284 Norma, and i really like them better. almost 200-300 fps faster! with 100gr bullet, almost 3500fps, thats fast!

The stock is a decision you alone can make. I like the Mcmillan Competition Baker but it is a hidden mag only. Can't wait to see your choice.

762, i can't wait myself. this has been thought out very carefully and a lot of research was put into it before one dollar was spent. i am looking forward to the day when i can post pictures of the finished rifle!

dteed, yes i agree with you, and at first i had it narrowed down to either one of the McMillen stocks or one of H-S Precision's stocks. but i have given myself another choice now, Richard's Microfit stocks, as i do like wood stocks too, and have been giving some thought to a nice looking laminated wood stock or maybe walnut. it is still long ways off before i have to make a decision. maybe two different stocks for one barreled action? hmm!

tony, i do really like wood stocks, it's just another option i'm kicking around. i still have several months before the barreled action comes back, and like i said, i might have two different stocks for the action. just something i have thought about. not fully decided yet.
