$1415. Extra bolts $625.

With a 0.473 bolt and a 0.532 bolt I will be able to set up with standard and magnum cartridges by simple swapping bolts and changing barrels. This will allow me to use the same action, stock, scope, trigger, etc. for most of my precision shooting needs, without the need for multiple rifles.

I can also get the larger bolt if I wish to shoot the Lapua class of cartridges.

Being able to chamber your own barrels would be a big plus.

Re: 338NM action??

I get what your saying... that sounds like a good idea. Here is a very stupid (but serious) question. Would ptg bolts work in those actions who have a remmy footprint? My guess is no but i figured id ask. 625 is damn expensive for bolts if u ask me..but then again 1400$ sounds like alot for an action but it seems as if im not going to dodge that bullet either.

Also i checked out the GAP templar v2...and its beautiful, i just cant find a price. I really appreciate all the fast responses. I was hoping 115vld would have some imput as well. Thanks everyone

Edit: also i want to add a 40moa rail to the top instead of a 20moa which is why i havent ordered a deffiance deviant with a .750" bolt because i love that action. Please excuse the typos, i am typing on a kindle. Thanks
I am not sure if you can get the bolt face you need WITHOUT the .750" bolt body diameter. Remember though, that as the bolt body diameter increases so does the bore hole size in the receiver, your trading steel for steel so weight difference will not be dramatic between a 0.750" bolt and a 0.700" bolt.

Again, not sure if Defiance will offer this bolt face diameter with a standard diameter bolt, you would have to check if that's what you want.

One more note however, the Defiance receiver has a hell for stout bolt handle design. On a Rem 700 inletted stock, the bolt notch will need to be opened up slightly to the rear of the notch to allow this very strong bolt handle to clear the stock. Easy to do with a steady hand and a dremel tool with a 1/2" drum sander attached.

There may also need some extending of the ejection port but that will likely be the case with ANY custom receiver out there. Good luck with your project.

No, at least not to my knowledge anyway. BAT receivers are unique and their bolt design is also unique. Very few custom receivers that are clones to the Rem 700 use bolts that are even similar to a Rem 700. The advantage of these custom receivers is that their bolt heads are over engineered for strength, wider, taller and longer bolt lugs support the larger diameter cases better when loaded to higher chamber pressure.

Plus, there is often much more steel behind the bolt lugs supporting the bolt head adding to the total strength of the receiver system. As such, most bolts are different lengths then a Rem 700 bolt.

I did mine on a Badger M2013. It is a hell of an action. It is above and beyond the M2008. It's built like a tank. Awesome Action. Silky smooth. The action comes with double recoil lugs integral, 3x2 bolt lugs, 20moa rail. Check them out. They're a great action.

Pretty sure the M2013 does not have a Rem 700 footprint or is it a great choice for a lightweight rifle. For a medium to heavy tactical rifle, right on the money but I think from the OPs goal, to much of a lot of things.
