Best Remington Platform to Start With
So I've decided the barrel is all but shot out of my most used and loved rifle. Sadly, the safety is also messed up and I don't know if it's worth going through the trouble to save it knowing that it also needs to be rebarrelled and it's not really the right gun for me. I would most prefer a custom but it's not the highest thing on my list. If I intend to have a new gun rebarrelled and rechambered at a later date, add new stock, and basically exchange everything but the action, what is the best remington to get?
If I go with the model 700XCR Tactical in .300 winmag will changing to .300 EDGE be a problem? I don't know enough about all this kind of stuff. Would I be better with Sendero in .300 RemUltra as a base for future plans? Is this a bad idea alltogether? I want to get a capable rifle now, shoot 1000 or so rounds out of it and then send it to somebody to make it what I really want. Which remington is going to be the most accurate of the two mentioned above? Is there another rifle I should be considering for this. I really like Remington action so I probably want to stay with them.
