My new rifle started as a 700 Rem in 7mm RM. I've added B&C Medalist stock, Williams bottom metal, Jewell trigger, Lilja 27" 25 cal. 10 twist 3 groove #3 contour barrel. It is chambered in .25-06 AI. Action is bedded and barrel floated. All work done by Charlie Robertson at Score High Gunsmithing
. Charlie is a great guy and a terrific gunsmith. When Charlie called me yesterday, it sounded like he was pretty proud of it, so I'm confident it's gonna be a monster.
At first I wanted a little heavier contour barrel than the #3, but it was in stock at Lilja, and as I said, that cut the build time by 2-3 months. I think it'll work fine and be a little lighter for carry. Scope is a Nikon Monarch 4-16x42. Did I mention the wait is hell?
What are you thinking for your build? I've heard the 721 Rem makes a good start, but I haven't seen one finished. Good luck with it.
