I am looking to build two rifles a long action 6.5 stw and a short action 20 tactical or 2o4 ruger. my problem is rem. 700 actions are somewhat cost prohibitive. So is there any reason rem. 721 or 722 actions could not be used. Are they weaker? is there something i'm missing?

The old 721 and 722 Remington actions would be my choice over a 700 any day.

They were excellent actions and still used today in match shooting.

I remember reading something awhile back about the 721/722 actions having a quicker lock-time than the 700's. (A good thing)

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
