that what i was thinking. also the pawn shop idea. no need to start with a cdl when you can start with a $300 complete gun...

what's a barreled action go for from one of the aftermarket suppliers...fairly cheap ones?

    I just got a flyer form Gander Mtn. they have the Rem 700 package on sale for $349.00 if I remember right. It's a ADL and you always add bottom metal if you want, cost to true would be $200.00 thats less then $500 for a smoking action when you sell off the scope and stock.

    I found my last action at a pawn shop for $250 for the complete rifle. Model 70 LA it is What my 6-06 wears.

    If you have the time you can look for deals. Depending the caliber you choose I may have a custom barrel for you that could save you some $$. I just sold 3 .20 cal pacnor's.

    Re: remington 700 sps actions?

    I use the cheapest action to start with..It will be flat black when I am finished any way.
    Than I went to an HS PRECISION varmit stock. All worked out great for me. Just my opinion.
