Re: custom long range rifle project

Sounds good. I'll check with Mr Mathews, etc. Guess my best bet is just hiring an excellent smith and let him build it or see if he has already built what I'm wanting. Leave it to the experts. Thanks again fellas. Dogear

    To those interested in getting a model 700 magnum action Bob White at The Shooters Corner has them in stock for $375.He is the IBS president and a darned good gunsmith.For those looking for a short action 700 Brownells sells them as does Dan Kinneman.A quick web search should get you in contact with any of these gentleman.If you plan on sleeving your action go to a pawn shop and get the ugliest one you can find and the price will be right.The sleeve will cover the entire outside so rusty pitted guns are best.Remington only makes 2 action lengths short and long.They make 3 bolt sizes 0.378.0.473 and 0.532 with the short action you can get either the 0.378 or 0.473 bolt face.The long action is available with the 0.473 or 0.532 bolt face.Time Precision the makers of the custom actions will custom make you a bolt for your Remington for $250 and you can get it coned.
