I agree. Typically if you don't already have a donor action, it ends up costing the same if you plan to have the action trued to just go with a custom. If you are not going to have th action trued, you may save some money.

The Savage swap barrel does sound interesting but I have no experience with it.

Good luck. I am having an Edge built on a 700 action now. Unfortunately, I already had a donor action.

Re: 338 edge!!!

I understand now Hart advertises that they square the action there before they install the barrel. I just getting into my first building of a custom rifle. I have a 300 win mag custom but I bought it second hand. Any other usful info would be great ie other barrel makers or custom action makers worth looking at. I am on a 2k buget just for the rifle. Thanks

A little info but not on your question. Hart rifle barrels charge you the same whether you have a custom action or a 700 blue printed. I don't see how they can do that but I called them about making a switch barrel for one of my custom rifles that they did so it would be just a new chamber and barrel screwed on and they told me that it was the same price as rebarreling and I asked why and they said the blue printing really don't take that long. I'm not a smith but I get the proccess but I still don't see how it can be the same money.

Re: 338 edge!!!

From the Hart site it says square the action and lap the lugs, I would call and inquire if it includes a recut of reciever threads, lug abutments and bolt truing. Sounds to me that it is a skim cut to square the reciever face and lap the lugs, a basic $55 service. Not a full "blueprint"

Yes it will include a full blue print everything coyboy mentioned. My point really is that if you have a custom $1000.00 action or a 700 that needs to be blueprinted it's still going to cost you $650.00 for a rebarrel job no matter what.
