As always, the answer depends, but here's a laundry list of potential cost:

Custom Barrel: $325 + Shipping
Barrel Installation: $300+
Action Blueprinting: $250

That will get the big part of the project done. From there you will want to consider whether you want to replace the trigger and stock. If you have a Remington stock, I would recommend changing it to a good aftermarket stock and have your action bedded into that stock. A decent stock will cost ~$200+ and bedding will cost ~$100.

Stay tuned, this particular rifle is about to change rather dramatically. Will post pics and list the changes soon.
