    I come across used 700's occasionally and wondered for a donor action is SS one of any more value as a donor action than a regular blued action?

    Been contemplating a 6.5-284 build for awhile and I found a SS BDL .30-06 for a reasonable price.

    stainless will cost a little more, but wouldn't turn down either one, if the price is right...

    no reason not to build on either one...

    Basically I am asking though does everyone think it is worth to grab up any SS I find and pay the slightly more coin. I guessing no. All of mine are the parkerized blue except one and I see no difference but I was wondering when it comes to customizing.

    Stainless actions are definitely worth more than chromoly ones, if that helps.

    I prefer the stainless over the blue, if they don't cost a lot more than blue. I like the fact that the stainless "shows dirt" a little better and are therefore usually kept cleaner.

    thanks, Larry
