    My 300 RUM is on a Remington 700 action, feeds properly. Cheaper that buying a new 700 action; I'd visit a pawn shop and buy an older beat-up 700 (maybe 7 mag for the action. The Remington 700 is about the best action to base a special build upon as there are more accesories/modifications for the M700 than all the other bolt rifles combined.

      Bear , you are very right on that. My smith would rather build on a Remington action over all others . the pawn shop is a good idea , just have to drive a 120 miles just to get to one , all good though , I will get to one someday . I just didn't know if any of you fellas knew of a place that broke down old/ older guns and parted them out for this purpose right here .

        There are about 15 700 actions over on Gunbroker right now. Including a 700 RUM action.
