I have one here Im working. I went with the AI version and dont have all my casing's fireformed yet...but i still can shoot the straight versions.

Rem 700 action that had been worked over...the long action...Laminated stock from Stockys....factory trigger thats been worked on....BRUX barrel.....and a Nikon variable scope.

Since I already have a 260 thats HB this rifle ...should I decide on doing it.....would become a deer ..antelope gun.

Re: build 25-06

Hey bud, depends on how cheap you can find components. If you can find a good mauser action for around 100$$ then you can build it pretty cheap. I barreled that swift i built for about 475$$ You can put alot heavier barrel on if you build one. But Iam sure in the end you can buy one cheaper. My timney trigger breaks a little over a pound [1.2]. You won't get that out of a factory gun.
