Re: Is Remington's 700 Action Still the Best?
Yes for the most part. Except if you where needing a controlled round feed because you were going after dangerous game, then I'd pick an older Win 70 with CRF, or a Mauser style action.
Your question is a little unfair, since trueing an action will cost nearly as much as the additional cost of a custom action over the cost of a 700 action. And when you want to resell a custom, you will get most of your $$'s out of it, the 700 will be worth around what you paid (prior to trueing it), so in the long run, the 700 is typically more costly than a custom 700 knockoff.
If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.
