I absolutely agree about the actions. It just seems that with rem actiins being so expensive to start with its about the same after accurizing to go with a custom. Unless I can find a steal of a deal on a 700.
On the trigger I think I will go with the jewell. It seems everyone says they are the best. Time to get one I guess
I am a little bias, but I will say this, I have never got a barrel from Lilja, Kreiger, Hart or the shillen select match that would not shoot well below 1/2 MOA (Luck, maybe) I have used other barrel brands and had good luck with them most of the time. I have not used all of the brands that are available but I have a list of the ones that I wont use at all (I will keep that to my self because others may have had good luck with them).
You should be able to find a 700 Remington in very good shape already set up for the big magnums
for $500.00+/- complete. add blueprinting (Around $200.00 +/-) If that is what you want. you might
even find one with a good composite stock (Not one of those Tupperware pieces of junk)and save more money.
Good luck on your build.
