Re: Best 700 clone Action for a build ?
It would be alot cheaper just to go to Wally World and buy a cheap 700 and then strip it down. Shilen Match barrel blanks can be had for about $350-375. And your smith will be doing all the work, I assume? Go ahead and factor in $500-750 in chambering, truing, fitting, bedding, floating, etc... Don't forget your aftermarket stock, trigger, bottom metal assembly, scope, and mounting system.
For a cheap build (not including any optics) you're looking at about $2,000.
If you choose to go with an Aftermarket 700 clone, you're looking closer to $2,500-3,000.
