    Is the action for a r700 adl chambered in 22-250 long enough to build a 6.5x47 lapua on?
    Think it is but wanted to double check.
    Thanks, Jeff

    You can also change it to a BDL Floorplate when you restock your new build, sounds like you have the donor action and your ready to go. Parts , Barrels and such are taking a long time to get so plan 4 to 5 months ahead.

    Good Luck

    I know where there is a rifle for sale that is cheaper than buying a new action. Trying to make the decision to buy it, as I have a urge to put together another rig. In no hurry for another build, just happened to see price on rifle and the wheels in my head started spinning. It's an addiction. :)
