I'm beginning to see the light of the Howa barreled action offerings. MDT chassis systems and the stocks from Belle & Carlson are something to get excited about.

If you're into chassis they list them for Remington 783 short action.

And you'd also need a chamber not throated out 2" past the bullet, so there goes the barrel...and the bolt would need to be trued, and on and on. The 700 just is not built to tight tolerances and the quality of a Tikka, so $2,000.00 is probably an accurate amount once you figure the new barrel, reaming, a better stock, different trigger, truing the action, etc.

And even then I seen guys with 700's still struggle to shoot 3/4 moa.

Default CZ is quality, old world, manufacturing

The 527 is a serious lightweight, accurate, field gun.

If you need only 100 yard tack driver, savage axis would do. The best bang for the buck. No need to change the stock, gust make a bigger relief around the barrel to compensate for flexing.
You can also make a "target" crown with a dremel tool.
One clover leaf hole at 100 yard with cheap factory ammo if you do your part.

Vortex diamondback scope and you are GTG

$0 investment besides reasonable priced great rifle and reasonable priced great scope

Saw a guy at the range doing that with a .223 Axis in a nice looking Boyds stock. He said it was really cheap to put together.

You cannot have the best of both in one rifle
Tikka T3X Lite for your backcountry/hunting applications.
Tikka T3X CTR or Varmint if you want a bench rifle.

Even with a smaller 30mm tubed scope I feel like the 24'' CTR is a hefty hunting rifle and making a standing shot with a sling would take some effort. The factory trigger on the Tikka is nice and adding a YoDave trigger makes it even better!!! Please keep us posted on your adventure.

This.....
https://www.sportsmansoutdoorsuperst...t-action-rifle

Mail in $75 rebate and it costs you $199.99 and is guaranteed to shoot sub-MOA. Throw on a decent Leupold vx-1 scope for another $139 off eBay and you have a sub $400 gun that shoots as well, or better than any of those already mentioned, but for about half the cost. Adjustable trigger and Boyds makes a wood stock for it for $139 , if that's what you want.

I might have to get one of those just for the heck of it. Made in USA and TC has always made good barrels.

Amazon has prices that are good and not fakes for Leupold scopes.

It's probably one of the safest scopes to buy off ebay. If it's fake you can get full refund. If there is anything else wrong with it Leupold will take care of it.

Tikka T3X Varmint is still in the running but I'm frustrated with the lack of options and cost of adding a drop box mag. Plus I dislike the stock. I know I can't necessarily have it all but it makes it hard to ignore the alternatives...

For example, I can get a Howa 24" heavy barreled action, a drop-in Bell & Carlson stock, and a metal DBM floorplate for under $1200 (before gunsmithing costs, if necessary). There are some all aluminum chassis options as well that come with a DBM for about the same price.

The dark horse is a Howa HCR with a 20" heavy barrel. Free-floating barrel? Check. Metal floorplate w/ DBM and metal mag? Check. Adjustable cheekpad and LOP? Check. All for under $1k delivered. I'd prefer a longer barrel but it obviously has a lot going for it.
