My first choice for an F-class rifle would be a surgon action second would be a bat action.
Yep. Thats what it about cost for my Remmy 700 reciever and bolt to be trued. In retrospect I would have been money ahead to have bought a custom billet reciever.
IMO I believe that no matter what brand of factory reciever you have, you're most likely will be having the same truing and machine work done and for about the same cost.
Alot of shooters are using 6.5mm here as well. We also have more than a few .338 Lapua shooters to boot. But niether of these fit into the F-TR class. They fit into the F-O class.
