Re: custom build on model 7 action?
I have built a 223, 223 AI, 22/250, 6.5 Lapua, 260 rem, lots of 7/08s, 7WSMs, 7 SAUMs, 308s,
325 WSMs and a 338 RCM with great results. (I probably left out a few).
22 to 23" barrels seem to be best all round.
With a very short action (the mag is the same length as the short action Remington)but the action is 1/2" shorter than a standard SA Remington I like to use heavy contours or the hunter bench rest
taper for accuracy .
On some of the WSMs and SAUMs a 24" barrel may be preferred.
It is a great action to build on and can be very accurate.
