i'm looking at a new build. (.243) and i'm trying to choose an action. i've got a Rem.788 located that i can pick up for $325. i don't see many rifles built on this action; is there a reason they aren't popular? are there any inherent shortcomings of this action? i'm also considering the following actions: Rem 700, savage, or if i get frustrated with those choices i'll just get a stiller. i'd like to save a few bucks on the action so i can splurge on the optics. i'm planning a 27" #5 fluted barrel in a Choate stock (feel free to give input/opinion on the choate stock. ) gun will be used as a deer/antelope gun to 800yds.
