I bought my blued 700ML donor, shipped, for $250. I would be looking to pay $300 for a stainless but they are getting a little pricier as the SML becomes more popular. Rather than pay more for stainless I just coat CM actions.

If you can do your own work the conversion will only set you back the price of the bolt nose kit ($88), barrel($450ish threaded from Pac-nor for example) and plug ($65-85 depending on if carbide or not). I'm sure guys will charge a couple hundred for fitting, heapsacing, etc. I would guess most guys are at $1K on the cheap end and around $2K for better builds before optics. The only real difference between these and a custom centerfire is most guys don't think trueing the 700ML receiver is important.

Despite what the critics say my NULA is going to be cheap compared to my 700SML.

Precision Rifle does a complete conversion on a Remington 308 or 243 for about $500. He uses a Green Mountain barrel and i don't think you can select the twist. I think his are 1-28.

I like the 700ML with a McGowen or Pacnor barrel better. The McGowen saves you about $100-150 and its still a great barrel. http://www.smokelessmz.com/pricelist.htm

Definitely gonna go with a non fluted Mcgowen. Does a Ti take off work with such a build?

Im not 100% sure but i believe the answer is YES with some minor sanding in the barrel channel. Ive seen them used but im not up on the exact details.

LVSF stocks seem popular and are reasonable.

So I've purchased a stainless remmy 700 ML off a fellow 24hour member, put a deposit down on one if Luke's next batch of barrels (pacnor sendaro contour), and all the conversion stuff. Got a few month wait on the barrel so I need to nail down what stock in gonna order.

I don't think you will be able to use the Ti stock. I had a Ti that I used for a build. You will most definitely be full length bedding is you use that stock. When I talked to the guys at McMillan about my build they said only the Classic, Remington Hunter, or HTG would work with a float in a sporter configuration. A Manners SL will take up to a Bartlein #4. All of those stocks will take more barrel than a Ti. The only B&C I think you can use in a Sporter is the Carbelite which can be made into a decent stock with good fitting and bedding.

I like McMillan or Manners because they can be had in a single shot inlet.

Shame a McMillan classic wasn't cheaper. I can get a ADL classic on their website for 539.

Woodson, I noticed you are getting some really good advice from Dougsmessage board. when your finished with your build I think you are going to be really happy. I personally opted for the Savage 10ml as a donor and would like to build another on a 700 action. The problem is, I have no reason to. the one I put together will easily put 3 shots into 2" at 250 yards. In fact out of the last dozen or so does I have killed all but one has been a head shot. This one was taken with the Hornady 200G SST.

I have a stainless/synthetic M700ML in .54 caliber (not that caliber seems to matter) in real nice shape I would sell for $375 shipped if anyone is interested. I have a Savage 10ML that shoots just fine for my needs so I don't need the Remington anymore.

You could probrably stuff a big barrel in one. The 700Ti I had started as a factory gun. I floated the barrel but the forend is really flexible. I never could get the barrel to shoot so it got a new tube and an McM Edge while I was at it. Even the thin forend McM KS is pretty flexible and that is when fitted for a #3-ish barrel. I would think that since most guys are using Sendero profile tubes you would have very thin edges or broken fiberglass shells at the top of the channel and would need to glass to fill them back in and a full length bed would fix the stock flex issue.

I just got mine a couple weeks ago. Its actually built on a 700cf, I really just did a second barrel for one of my guns. I use 45 acp cases with a 209 primer in. I have a Ibex hunt in NM in a month so I have to use black powder or sub, so I have been shooting with blackhorn. The gunsmith shot it with smokeless and with a random test loads the bullets were all touching at 100 yds. My first loads with BH and 275 parkers had all the shots touching. I then use the 300 grain parker max hunters and shot 1" group at 200 yds at 2445 vel. Yesterday I shot it out to 500 yds and this thing just freaking shoots awesome.

You are going to love shooting a 45cal smokeless. There is no comparison and you give up nothing vs a 50cal using sabots. Nearly any 45 you can shoot in a sabot with a 50cal can be shot in the 45 with a little re-sizing. You wont even have to wait nearly as much for the barrel to cool when you ditch the sabots.

They shoot subs and 495gr conicals just fine too.
