    Re: Simple question about Rem700 actions.

    I just built a 6.5-284 on a remington action that i had laying around. After truing, chambering, barrel, and stock. I only have 700 in the gun and it shoots 1/4" five shot groups at 100yards, I'm sure it will shot alot better once I let the gun shoot.

    Re: Simple question about Rem700 actions.

    In "the ol' days" ADLs and BDLs used the same actions, gloss, blued. In the past few years, the ADLs have been matte finished, I don't know what it is but they sure are not as smooth as the BDLs. Some of the Senderos and VS models have the matte actions, too. I'd guess that the finish is the only difference in the models.

    Jay,
    I only have experience with the one ADL I have, but "I" was actually wondering if that finish was why it felt slicker?

    I guess a trip to the gun shop to cycle the $hit out of their many actions is in order! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Wow thanks for all the info......

    I think it is almost an overload, but through it all, I think I settled on a sendero, in a 300WSM, or something like that....With the posibility, of swapping the barrels to 6.5 in the future....

    There is a special purpose rifle Remington chambers in the 300 WSM, but that's also a short action. I've never seen one, heard about them is all.

    Re: Simple question about Rem700 actions.

    hmmm, another thing I would like to do, is stick a WSM, into a long action, that way, I could seat the bullets out a bit farther. Does this make sense or am I being silly. And if I did do this, what are the chances of finding a WSM in a standard action. LOL
