Talk about some nice stuff.....really nice rifles. From full customs down to less expensive stuff.
What about a #1 Ruger or Howa action?
Are there too many short comings in them to be acceptable?

I completely agree with "CC" on this.............but this is not how Bob started out this thread, thing's have got a bit side tracked since the OP


rockchuck....yes they have! But that's OK...I'm learning a lot about actions I don't know a thing about,and have never owned.I am pretty much a nuts and bolts rifleman/hunter.....folks posting this info are more knowledgeable than me on this stuff,and I want this rifle to take advantage of the newer advancements.

It's learning experience and all good! wink smile

Now that's a new one, two different ejector systems. And the extractor ?
And why do we need two of them.... ?
From what I've seen, the big problem with the Remingtons are their safety and enclosed trigger designs. Have a little crud, carried by some rain water run down into the trigger groups and lots of funny things happen. The bolt release is another thing that I've seen act up.
But what do I know. I'm a big fan of the old 98 Mauser, and the modern CRF Rugers and Winchesters. Those poor dumb target shooters of days gone past just didn't know what they were missing with their well used, pre-64 actions. E

Well Bob, have you made any definite choices yet? That McMillan looks pretty sweet.

That McMillan action has two ejectors and a side bolt release unlike the Remington 700.

Terry: No, not yet frown.....still thinking but I do like the McMillan.They are all nice, which is the problem... confused smile

Looking through the McMillan website, it occured to me maybe I should just have them build the whole damned rifle on that Bartlein tube.....I mean they have everything I would need right there,and I hate chasing various parts for a rifle.But I have not contacted them to discuss it.

E: I understand what you're saying but I don't want a pre 64 for this rifle...I could have had one easy (there was a 308 action right in the shop),but I want 700 or one of these more modern PF actions for this rifle. smile

As you know...I love pre 64's but for the LR applications intended here, it is just easier to have a trued up and squared action that way, rather than have to work over a pre 64 for the purpose.

Sako Action all the way with a 30mm LR 4.5x14.
No need for a 20 moa with that scope.

McEdge Classic.


2nd choice, 700 with the new McMillan Game Scout stock.
