The trigger has already been set to my liken...I was thinking of asking $50 for the barrel and $75 for the stock , does this sound about right ?
If you use the rifle as a donor I would recomend a 26 or 28" barrel at least as heavy as the
sendero or the next size up.
It would still go in the stock with a little work and you could re use it. If it has the laminated
stock this is as good a stock as you could ask for and can be refinished easy.
I would recomend that if you buy a new stock get a laminate because with the heavy barrel
the rifle will end up being muzzle heavy with a composite.
The 7mm RM will work fine for your intended use and if you wanted more velocity than it will
produce then a 7 STW or even a 7 RUM would be my choices in .284.
On donor rifles that are as you described you wont get much if anything for the barrel or the
stock so the value is in the action.
