I have pretty good gunsmith that builds my rifles and like the 700 bolt you can order a new one sell your old one.

Lots of option for the rem action.
Gunsmith in business to make money he's going to charge you the same as if you purchased direct so I just as soon he makes the money same with ordering a barrel. I also think it's good idea to get the gunsmith in the planning on a future build and most gunsmith have barrels they like to use.
Gunsmith I'm using has put on Mike Rock,Bartlein,Lilja,Kreiger,Shilen and Hart barrels for me and he's got pretty good in with those guys.
Everyone I think has different way they plan and have something build.
Well good luck
