Re: The Perfect Long Rifle
Your suggestions are spot on. I took the same path in building my arsenal.
Bolt guns that I've built with Remington 700 baseline rifles: 223, 243AI, 7-08, 308, 300WM. Each has been accuracy tuned, either new barrels or cut back re-chambered and recessed 11 degree muzzle crowns, tuned and adjusted triggers, the 7-08 and 300WM have jewel triggers, and pillar/glasbed stocks.
Great shooting and a major cost savings.
As far as the poll the 300WM.
I'm in the process of building a 338 Edge and just received all the parts to build my new 6.5 Grendel AR15.
Thanks to everyone for the great input.
