    The answer is yes "BUT" if you buy just the action you will need to buy
    a trigger plus the bottom metal and all of this is normaly more expensive.

    The action=around $400.oo plus shipping.
    A trigger = around $ 100.oo plus shipping.
    Bottom Metal = $ 75.00 to $150.oo.

    You can buy a 700 sps for $375 to $450 and end up with all of these parts
    and then you can sell the stock and barrel and recoup some of your money.

    and then you can put the money from the stock & takeoff barrel towards blueprinting the action and a trigger job.

    Better off to find a used rifle at a show or consignment shop, and strip that down....
