I built (3) 7mm Rem Mag rifles in October 2009.
(2) were on 1908 Braz Mauser actions [These Mausers cost $150 from Century in Dec 2008]
(1) was on a Braz VZ24 Mauser action. [These Mausers cost $150 from Century in Dec 2008]
I took off the Mauser 7mm barrels.
I used $33 Rem700 take off barrel on one.
I used a $14 stainless Win M70 barrel on one.
I used a $185 Lothar Walther barrel on one.
All three got large Limbsaver recoil pads that I did not grind to match the stock butt. I left them large for more surface area.

None cost much or kick hard.
