Ya I'm going to call them and see if they will send me a blank , or see if they have smith do it, he is a remington dealer so that might be what happens. If i have my choice I will have our smith install it
They probably won't sell you (him) a blank without it being chambered already. If they won't, you'll be better off having the smith true up the action, and have a custom barrel installed. It will be better than anything Remington will send you. Plus, it's a good excuse to build a custom 7mm STW with a 26"-28" heavy barrel.
If you don't want to spend much, just have the smith polish it out, hand-lap your barrel, true the action, headspace, and shoulder lug, and bed the action. That's a general accurizing package at most shops, and should make a noticeable difference, even with your factory barrel.
