It doesn't compare to my high end optics,...

Allen,For what your wanting to invest right now I'd suggest just buying a factory rifle if you really want to go off a Remington action. You'll eat up half of your budget in gunsmithing fees.

I'm not a big fan of chassis that have a top rail on the fore-end. It makes mounting optics too high over the centerline of the bore. The only reason to have such a rail on a bolt gun would be if...
