My Dad is looking to buy the above mentioned rifle in a 300 ultramag. He is buying this rifle with the intention of having shawn build him an edge at a later time. At anyrate, that will in the future, so in the meantime my question is: how does the beadblast finish they now come with hold up. Is it inferior to other stainless actions. for example, i have a sendero and the action sure seems alot smoother than this new one. also, in moist, wet weather, will it tend to hold up as well? will this action be suffice for a future build or should he find an older 700 stainless? All opionions are welcome. thanks alot guys.
