building a rifle, needing opinions
Hello, I looking at building up a rifle. I recently purchased a cdl 700 action, which is basically stock.
I need to try to keep this project somewhat affordable so I was looking a barrels that could be ordered short chambered and installed and reamed by myself (I have done the same thing with three mauser 98's)
My question is which barrel would be best, I really see this rifle being used for 500 and under shooting (I know you guys are a looong range forum, but 500 is long for me?) The barrel needs to be ordered threaded up and chambered.
So any barrel recomendations would be great, also any other comments on the job would also be great, how to get the most out of the 700, without having it blueprinted (or arguments for bluprinting) Just starting out, would love any and all comments!
