love my 260 but wanting more, so looks like 7mm mag due to availability of brass and the bullet SD/BC. not finding any heavy barrel used guns in this caliber anywhere. searched web and didn't see any hbar's for sale either. would prefer threading for a brake as well.
obviously, if I could find the right gun at right price, that would be my preferred route. however, if I can build what I want at the right price and learn a little along the way, I could go that route. just not looking to drop 2k+ on a rifle. I can do any stock work and know rem 700's have many drop-in customs as well. would it be best to buy a 700 action and get it rebarreled? not sure about the bolt in this regard. would it have to be from another 7mm mag?
my local gun shop doesn't have anything available in what i'm wanting and the smith is almost 3 months behind. leaving the doors open to suggestions....
thanks for any suggestions/help. look forward to any responses
