Casting about for a short action Remington 700 to start a build I noticed that there is a rebate of $75. on these rifles. You can pick one up for less than $700. final cost after FFL fee. The only short actions I can find are the stainless steel version in 6.5 Creed, a small snivel but I can easily pull the barrel and sell it. I notice the M40 style stocks are pretty common in the classifieds here and am wondering if there is something just not right about them? My end run "scheme" is a Antelope/prairie dog rifle in 6MM Creed using a Criterion Remage barrel and a Trigger Tech trigger.

I've got 3 of the R700 LRs: .300WM, .30-06, .25-06. While there is nothing wrong with the M40 stocks, they don't really excite me. Most of my hunting is within 200 yards, so I can tolerate a stock that isn't the most comfortable to use. When using a NF ATCAR, the line of sight is a bit high, so I don't get the cheek weld I would like. If I'm looking at adding an aftermarket cheek riser, I'd rather look at replacing the stock for something more comfortable.

Remington had $125 rebate a few years ago and I am still waiting for the money!!!! I called them and they wanted me to resend the original reseat!!! I got a copy of the original reseat because they had the original reseat but that was not good enough!!!

I have a long action 700 LR in a Bell and Carlson stock. It suits my needs just fine. Haven't used it alot. Good rifle but just can't seem to get excited about it. Can't complain about it, but I need an adjustable cheek riser to get a good weld.

Well I came upon a good deal, a short action 700 with a Timney trigger and Talley 30 MM mounts. This will be where I start since the M40 stock seems to be a non starter. It will come with a stainless 308 mountain rifle contour barrel and an SPS stock.
