Re: action question for .284 jazz,300 norma
The 700 will work, but it's definitely not ideal. Personally, I would rather have an action that was built for the .338 Lapua than use a weaker action when dealing with anything built off of the 300 or 338 Norma. The stronger actions ensure the stiffer barreled action, which greatly aids in accuracy. This is extremely important if you use a heavier barrel, longer barrel, and/or suppressor. The top of my list is the Surgeon XL (if you can find one that is) and Kirby's Raptor. Good luck.
