4 rifles for sale/which one for donor

I have found four rifles for sale locally that Im looking at for a donor to build either a 300rum or a 30-338 lapua. Which one of these do you guys think would be the best one? (all descriptions are copied and pasted from original add)

1. Remington 700 .30-06 cal. 22 inch barrel with brand new Remington synthetic stock.This gun is in pristine condition and has about 30 rounds through it, all at the range. It comes with Leupold aluminuim one piece base with a Bushnell 3x9 scope, Uncle Mikes sling and owners manual. $475

2. Savage model 110 300 Win Mag With a Boyds thumbhols stock. Has mount and rings. firm at $400.00

3. Wetherby Vanguard wby 300 mag (copied from add) 24" barrel, satin blue finish on all the metal, checkered walnut action bedded to a Monte Carlo, injection-molded composite PG stock. With sling studs and hinged floor plate, comes with a Bushnell scope and rings. Without doubt the best rifle value. Has a few scuffs on the left side of the stock due to handling in and out of the safe, NO DEEP gouges. $425

4. Savage model 110 in 300WM. I purchased this rifle last year for my Elk hunt and never got to use it. Has 40-50 rounds through it and is very accurate. It does have some scratches from field use.It comes with a Nikon 4.5x14x40 Buckmasters BDC scope and a box of ammo. $550

Just found 2 more:

5.$400, Savage 111 Detachable box mag 270

6. Savage/stevens 200 300 winmag $270

Anyone of the long actions for the RUM. take your pic

None of them are candidates for a 338 Lapua. Savages cannot be done safely, and 700 will cost too much and is marginal at that.

If you want a Lapua, but the new savage 338s with action made for it. MSRP is $1500

Now the 700 can be made into a 30-338 Norma, which basic short 338 Lapua. you will need a new bolt from PTG $200 and some action work for sure.

However, you are not going to gain a lot over the RUM.

Stay with the RUM

Re: 4 rifles for sale/which one for donor

The actions you listed are to short for either cartridge you are considering. You will have a single shot. My opinion is you will be very disatisfied pretty quick and wanting to retool soon. Wait for a good action for what you want to do. You need a long magnum action for the RUM or a wby mk 5 for best results with the Lapua. The mk 5 is also best for the RUM but it will work with some others.

If you went to the LRH classifieds you'd find a couple of very good deals on 300 rum's that are ready to go.
