I purchased a Remington 700 sps (bare bones basic) off of a friend for 100 dollars. He went to sight it in and I guess he figured out he wasn't man enough for the gun. My question is to anyone who might have some insight as to what reputable gunsmiths and aftermarket options would be good for me to turn this thing into a 1200 yard machine. I already purchased a bell and Carlson medalist stock for it. I plan to keep this rifle light as I will be packing for elk, sheep, and bear hunts. I plan to load berger 210s or 230s for it. I also am only a carpenter so budget is large part of all of this.I know It will take awhile, maybe years, to go through each step into transforming this rifle and I just need some input on which steps are necessary and plausible. Thanks for your help!
