I am thinkin I may get the 30-06 and gradually upgrade, but I want to make sure it wouldn't be better to start from scratch as essentially the only thing left un-upgraded in the end would be the action.
If you want to start with an action and build from there, you definitely will want to go with a Savage as they do not require many specialized tools. I am unsure where you can find a Savage action by itself.
If you went with a remington action, you would need some fairly specialized tools.
My recommendation would be to start with a complete rifle (as that way you have something to shoot) and steadily upgrade from there.
