Ok guys this is my first real longrange set-up. I've got a gun built in my head ,also i have the donor rifle in my closet it's a rem. 700 adl 270win. w/an hs precision stock. I got the gun very cheap and want to keep the price down on the build -so no jewell trigger -fluted barrel and i'm not going to put hundreds of blueprinting dollars into the action. I like the adl set-up and i'm not going to change to different bottom metal/different stock wyatt's box etc. "i'm using what i have". I've did a little measuring here and there and from what i see the 7mm stw w/the the 160accubond or 162 a max-168gr vld's w/the bullet seated at the neck -shoulder juction will not fit in the magazine.So that's why i chose the 7mm dakota cartridge ,it is stated that it will function in a long action when set-up this way ? <That's my question ? I have an email in to broughton barrels asking Tim a couple of questions/opinions on what diameter barrel he'd recommend for a heavy sporter weight in 30" finished length. I'm thinking a #5 ? In a 5 R -rifling barrel . Also i want to get dies made off the reamer . I also have a scope and rings zeiss 6.5x20-50 w/burris signature rings w/inserts. The rifle will be used for longrange wolf hunting ,hoping the rifle will get me out to 8-900yds. Sound ok ?
