    Remington 700 Long Action/Donor Rifle

    I'm looking to build a .280 Ackley on a 700 action, so i'm looking for a donor rifle or long action to build from. Looking for stainless and must be in like-new condition (no marks or rust etc.). Otherwise I might have to suck it up and buy a new one.

    If anyone has something that might be suitable let me know.

    Have you considered using a LA Howa action? You can buy a new barreled action for around $800. That way you also have a brand new barrel to sell on.

    they pop up on trade me every now and then. I got a 7mm rem mag, rings and suppressor for $750.
    You may just have to be patient as they do pop up every now and then.

    Nothing wrong with a HOWA at all mate and completely agree with you however I may have resolved this gentleman problem for said action.

    Thanks for the replies gents. I really have my heart set on a 700, although I have owned a Howa .223 that was very accurate. I'll keep an eye on trademe and see if one pops up.
