What exactly does "Truing the action" do for you? Is it really needed? Also, what does "bead blasting" do for you? Looking at my 1st "custom build," decided on 7mm Rem Mag as my caliber... I am debating 3 options... 1) Buy a new Rem M700 SPS SS 7mm ($~600) Cut 2" off the barrel (to 24") (not sure what a smith would charge for this) Buy a good quality stock and bed the rifle ($200-$500+) 2) Look for a beat up M700 in 7mm ($300) Put a Douglas #2 on it in 24" 1-9 twist Buy a good quality stock and bed the rifle ($200-$500+) 3) Buy a Rem 700 Sendero and just call it good.... I like the Sendero (buddy has one) but it is just HEAVY and long..... All 3 options would include a trigger adjustment (I like 2.5-3lb pulls), Talley Rings, and a Leupold VX-II 4-12x40mm Adj. Obj. I am leaning toward option 1 as I could get the weight down with a LW stock... Always just had out of the box factory rifles before so this is my 1st attempt at something "customized." Any info would be appreciated!
