    Hey guys, I'm new here and want to know it you help me with a few decisions (Since you all sound like a knowledgable lot [​IMG] )

    Since i first started shooting i've wanted one thing, a good accurate rifle that i could shoot out to 800m+ with. Now i am working for a resonable wage i want to make a custom rifle which will turn in atleast .5 MoA @ 100y, I can buy a second hand winchester 670 in very good condition (Which is basicly a Winchester 70 post '64 from what i understand) for $450-500. I wanted to know what you guys think is a good tactical style stock, that would accept the win 670 action, I was thinking H-S Precision, but i'm open for any other suggestions.

    Would not spend $450 on a 670 Win action or gun. You can buy a good used Sendoro or Win stealth in 308 for $500 normally and with little load work will give you 1/2 MOA routinely. Bedding, lap lugs, trigger etc. Great accuracy and cheap to shoot.

    As for barrels, Hart, Lilja, Spencer, Rock are known accuracy barrels and cheaper than HS.

    Here in Australia a Remington Sendero will sell for around $1400, thats why i was considering the Win 670.

    Ice,

    See if you can find a used remington 700 or 721, savage action, or better yet scrap a gun you dont use very often, send it to pac-nor, have them fit a 30" 1/8 twist in 260remington or a 6.5/284, 1.25 tapering to .90 and get a stock from richards microfit, do the bedding your self, you'll have about 700-1000 in the gun but it will be a shooter.
