Re: Back up and punt.
I'm sure not one to give advice for sure. Just tell you what i've beat around with the last couple years. I picked up one of the cheap 700 adl's in 7RM. I get devcon on the cheap so instead of going ahead and getting a new stock i dug it out, reinforced the front, filled it full of devcon along with pillow bedding the action, painted the stock with some web paint. Started reloading and shooting. Using a borrowed Leupy 6.5X20. Blame thing shoots around .4 most of the time @ 100. Killed a lope in 2010 at 357 yds with a head shot.
Now i've picked up a 300 WM in an old sendero. Still working on it but still not to where that old cheap 7 RM is and I'm at about 1700 in it now. Go figure?
