    if anyone can help me out with some pointers on a build i would like to commence.
    Only 2 things im certain about, 1 is the model 700 barreled action, 2 is the game scout or sporter! other than that i can use some help...lol..
    -Remington 700 in 300 wsm
    -thinking of either a Mcmillan game scout stock or a3 sporter
    an to be totally honest i dont have any real solid idea's on what else would be good to make it a accurate rifle. A friend of mine suggested to add a PacificToolGauge bolt.

    but if anyone has any ideas that might help me out it would be much appreciated.

    I reccomend the Competetive Edge Gun Works bolt over the PTG, it is spiral fluted, has tactical knob and uses a pinned M16 style extractor, then put a PTG/Callahan speedlock in that. You will also want a good trigger, Jewell is the best but sometimes not for hunting, that said the Rifle Basix L1 is very nice as well. I'm guessing your using a short action so in that case you will need a Wyatts window box extended magazine or you can use an AI, Badger, or Seekins bottom metal setup. I'd go ahead and get a one piece base as well, no need for an elevated one for your use.. lastly even though they are loud I would put a muzzle break on it, Vias are among the quietest. Barrel contour, a 26" Sendaro contour will do great, Lilja, Kreiger, Brux, and Benchmark are my top picks, broughton, bartlien, and rockcreek are also great.
