200gr Wildcats...700 action

If you guys had a few hundred 7mm 200gr Wildcats and a Remmy 700 long action (30/06 blued) and wanted to build a rifle for the bullets, what would it be?

    A 284win would keep the same bolt fact.

    Increasing to a magnum bolt face will get you to the 7mmWSM, 7mmSTW, and the 7RUM.

    Myself, I view those the upper limit of what I would ask a 700 action to do.

    Given a stronger action I'd be looking at the 7AX, 7Allen Mag, or the 284 JAZZ.

    Kirby Allen Rifles

    This is a link to kirby's creations, that I know of. If there is a 7ax it must be new.
