Re: Question about remington actions

will one of the cheap WalMart 700s work they have one for 386.00 with scope and everything. I would just use the action as I have been thinking of a 6.5-284 myself.

    Yep a "Walmart Special" has the same basic action as the other model 700's.
    The only real difference is the finish.

    It may be cheaper to get an sps if you want a hinged floor plate. I use facctory bdl bottom mettal and have never had a problem. I believe the wallmart specials are adl but I could be wrong. Justices a thought.
    I dont know who ever came up with the imaganary word of "Over Gunned"
