    Looking for Remington 700 Barrelled actions.

    I am currently keeping an eye out for a rem 700 barrelled action in .308 calibre to purchase. If anyone has a decent one for sale I would love to hear about it. I already have a stock to drop it in.

    At this stage I would only really consider actions that had barrels but I will keep it in mind, is it a factory action or a aftermarket 700 action? As for the 7mm-08 barrel I will keep it in mind also but if I change calibres then I will have to buy new reloading gear and I only have a small budget. I might not be very popular in the house if I go over budget.

    If a smaller lighter bullet going slower is an improvment

    VC if all goes well the Omark might be getting a smaller bush brother, but still in the "preferred" caliber

    Sticking with 308 at this stage. I would change calibre if I hadn't already bought the reloading gear.
