    A Defiance XM action and bottom metal would be perfect for a 6.5-284.

    go over to The Shooters Forum, and look in the main message board for the action thread. You may find it quite interesting

    my last build, it took a while but i got a nice used 700 on g-b for 365, then sold the barrel and stock for 75.00.

    it is just hard to beat 700s, especially if money is any concern.
