Rifle rebuild - 260 Rem
Hello all, I am a newbie here and have been following the forum for some time and have not jumped in yet, I have a question for you long range shooters.
I have a beat up Rem 700 in 308 Win (barrel and stock not in great shape but the action is) which is still serviceable and want to rebuild to a better performing rifle. I like the idea of a 260 Rem and have 308 brass that I can resize.
Replace barrel to 260 Rem, new stock, scope, trigger, square the action, slick up the bolt a bit and have the stock glass bedded. I need to be modest with the outlay of cash for good parts but would it be worth the cost of the project for the new cartridge?
Also do you have any recommendations of component parts and loads? Any help and suggestions is much appreciated.
