    Cheap rifle for project, yet again

    Yet again, I am after another rifle for a project.

    After a medium or long action rifle. Unsure on calibre I'm after but as always, price will be depending on what I want to do.

    Not sure if I want to rebarrel, or just rechamber into a different wildcat round.

    Not sure on budget (certainly wont be high, cheaper the better) but curious of whats out there. I realise its a long shot but you just never know.

    If I sell some more stuff, then the budget will be higher.

    How about a fairly rough P14 action - its 303 barrel is a sewer and some dopey bugger has coated it with hammerite paint. It does have good points, its from a BSA model E, so has a straight bolt handle and straight floorplate. Model 70 scope mounts will fit it. Stock is not really useable. Would make a lovely 280 or something like!!

    How much you ask for this paragon virture? $150

    All it needs is a stock and you're shooting. Have been holding on to it just in case.

    Or as another option, what barrels do people have for sale to fit a Remington 700.
    I have a sps tactical and a long action one that I can rebarrel. Depending on barrel I might make it a wildcat one.

    What do people have that they want to get rid of. I have a new 7mm Rem Mag barrel, and I have the rifles chambered in 308, and 300 win mag and 416 Taylor already.

    I only have one for the 416 Taylor.
    I would speak to Scott and see what he has and go from there.
    Or depending on the barrel, I may even buy a reamer

    I'm not looking to get rid of it at this stage. Yes its a new barrel removed and replaced with another barrel. I got it for just in case I wanted to remove the 416 barrel.
