    Will an old 721 action thread onto a newer remington 700 take off barrel?
    There is a 7mm stw in the classified forum that Ill buy if someone can tell me if it will thread onto a 721 or not. If it does thread on, will I have to have the chamber shaved off a bit and then re-finish ream for headspace, or will there be a slim chance that it will only need head space reaming only?
    Thanks in advance
