Best gun to customize?

What rifle (and if Remington 700 please say which model) do you think is the easiest rifle to make accurate? I am going to buy a rifle and give it some serious tune ups, which rifle would be easiest and have the most potential. Please remember that this is strictly your opinion of the easiest rifle to customize with the highest potential. And if your wondering I am going to get a .300 winchester magnum.

Well if your gonna buy a rifle and rebuild it then I would say the Remington 700 in the Sendero model , that way you'll have a good stock and action to start with , then have it rebarreled if it doesen't shoot well.

But about any rifle can be made to shoot well it just depends on what your wanting to do and willing to spend.

A better question would be exactly what is it your wanting to get and get out of it

I will probably put a new stock on it, a new trigger unless trigger is good already. I will probably just get accessories for it and stuff to add to it.

Parlan, I would say Remington 700 Sendero, have the action trued, barrel crowned, stock bedded, and add a nice Jewel trigger and you will have a rifle that will shoot under 1/2 MOA with good hand loads. All this will cost around $500 to $600, but it will be well worth the money.

Or you could buy an already accurate savage and take your upgrade money and buy good glass!!!!!!

Parlaan, the sendero already has a HS precsion stock on it. You can buy a used sendero for $600 and it already has a $260 stock on it.

I still say you are making a mistake with a 300 win mag but YMMV.

I need the .300 winchester magnum because I will be shooting big game like big elk and small moose at up to 500 yards.
