6.5 Gibbs!!! That oughta fill the biil for smokin' hot with little bullets and bigger game with the bigger bullets. That way you don't need to worry about the bolt face. Or maybe a 240 Gibbs or similar 6/6.5-06 improved version.
About the trigger; I am pretty sure the 1500 is the same as the Interarms MarkX (ask a gunsmith first) and my Interarms has a Jewel trigger on it.
However, same as you my gun is miserably inacurate, takes three shots to hit the ground, so it's going to be a project gun also.
Good luck with the build.
