    Looking for some sound advice here. I want to put a Hogue stock on my Short Action Remington 700 BDL, .223, standard barrel (not a heavy one).

    I am building a custom rifle and was planning on using my current weatherby vanguard in .300 win mag. Then as I looked into it more I realized the only thing I would be using in my build was the action/reciever. So, that got me thinking I should just buy that to use in my build instead of...

    I know there is a difference in the size of the stock and the barrel is a little bit shorter. But how much shorter is the barrell and is the ballistics any different?

    Gunsmithing
    I was going to build a custome .308 rem 700 starting with the action. I wanted to start in .308 and eventually convert it into a 300 win mag when I shoot the barrel out.

  20. Remington 700 S/A Action Screws

    Gunsmithing
    Anyone know what type of thread is used in the Remington 700 Action screws, Have swapped the stock for a Choate Tactical but the screws needed are a small amount longer than the stock Remington ones. Dont suppose another model or brand Rifle would use similar screws that are slightly longer.
