    On that action I would do the 300 RUM. Good luck with your project.

    The 378 case does not do well on the rem 700 action.

    If the barrel is heavy then a bedding block is better than pillars in most cases.A Vortex Razor scope with FFP ( first focul plain) MRAD reticule seems to be a good scope .

    If you're going the bedding block route, you got alot of glass to dig/grind out for that Whidden block to go into. Also, kinda' wondering about an extractor for that cartridge. I've seen several 1917/1914s converted, but they use a big Mauser style extractor. Is this a new full time, 2 yr. gunsmithing program you are attending?

    Gonna be a nice project, but I'd go for the 300 RUM or 300 ackley mag/308 Baer, the 378 case is a bit much on a rem 700, its better with a CEG bolt but I wouldn't do it, sightron, vortex, or nightforce are your best scope options.

    Even the Lapua rim is awfully big for a Remmy. The RUM case is indeed a better option.

    Go with a M-16 hinge pinned style extractor instead of the Sako. What else ya' gonna' build? Or do they just require one rifle?
