    IS AN REMINGTON MODEL SEVEN ACTION AS GOOD AS A 700? I HAVE ONE IN 308 AND WOULD LIKE TO USE AS A DONER ACTION FOR AN 6.5-284 OR 284 WIN OR ANYTING IN A WILDCAT AND BUILD AN TACTICAL OR F CLASS RIFLE.gun)

    Ditch the M7 and get a M700. The mag length is shorter in a M7. Bolt-on parts are very plentiful for M700 especially if you go the tactical route.

    I love my M7s for hunting. But for modifications the M700 is the way to go.

    You can rebarrel to a varmint profile and run an off the shelf HS stock inletted for the varmint barrel but OAL of cartridges will be short and I'm not sure anybody makes a DM set-up for M7s if you need more than 4 rounds.
