The Weatherby Vanguard is still being sold for under $400,oo
at many stores and makes a very good donor.
It's the same action that is in a Howa.
If you can find one in 25/06, 270win, 280 rem,30/06 all you have to do is screw a custom
barrel on it. and if you find one in 280rem then you are good to go.
I prefer the Remington for the reasons you stated, but the Vanguard is a great rifle at
a great price.
