View Full Version : Need input on a build...
09-05-2008, 1:36 PM
I have decided to build a bull barreled, bolt action in 30-06. Weight is no object and yes, I'm set on 30-06. I know it would be easier to simply drop $$$ and purchase an already built, tuned and tested bench gun, but where is the fun in that?
Any thoughts on a good platform to start with?
Thanks in advance for your input.
Go to gunbroker and buy just a bare remington 700 Long-Action receiver.
Best place to start, and inexpensive.

Is money also no object? Surgeon and Stiller are nice actions. :)
Remington is the way to go for the most aftermarket parts.

Because you're building a long action you're limited in your choice of actions. I would recommend a Stiller action. (Rem parts will bolt right on) Match it with a Krieger, Rock, Broughton or Lilja barrel, a Jewell trigger and your favorite stock and you'll have a start.
Anyone can buy top level components but the big issue is who you hire to build it.
