My brother has the opertunity to pickup two Remingtons a .3006 and a .270 there are two other rifles they are also Remingtons.(short actions) When you built your 6.5X285s did you use long actions or short actions. His plans are to do some long Range shooting. M40A1s with the ability to kill deer behind the company where he works, the owner gave permision but we are both building idetical rifles. Also when you changed the bolt nob to a badger did you grind down the old nob or just cut it off at the front of the origenal bolt nob. the models are cheap ones. the only thing that worth using is the Bolts/actions and triggers. .
