Ok so I am building a parts list for a semicustom home built Hunting rifle. The action is a savage Varmint with detachable mag and a .473" bolt face. I havent decided on caliber yet. Might do a 260 rem or a 25-308 (25 Souper). Not sure yet. Thanks to switchbarrel I have my stock a Stockade Woodchuck. Optics are not set yet either. Back on topic I am using a stainless action and a stainless barrel. I am just wondering if I should have them both painted together or leave the metal alone.
