If it were me:

Rifle: Used FN SPR A1 (with floorplate)-$1000 (if you want dbm I would build a remington)
Optic: SWFA 5-20 HD ~$1300

This rifle has a better action IMO than the others you listed and will have winchester's old style trigger (great design)
Also I believe the magazine on the winchester allows the bullets to be seated out further than a remington. Chrome lined bore means it probably hasn't been shot out yet.

I'm currently building a model 70 classic (same design as FN SPR), the only reason being that I wanted a long action. I love this action.

As a side note, has anybody run a JAE stock on a remington 700. I've seen a handful of them on M1A's but never on the remington platform. Just curious to see the reviews on how they are working for people, modularity, or just a general like it or not.

I'm not sure they have actually shipped any yet.
They have been taking orders and deposits for YEARS.
I have never seen one in person outside of the SHOT SHOW.
I go to a lot of precision rifle events and have seen pretty much every other chassis system ever made for 700's...

This is the proper answer right here. The resale on these rifles is much lower than what guys pay for original work, and .308 barrels last a long time so buying used, especially high quality used, shouldn't be an issue.

apparently they are in circulation.

Personally I would rather have an AICS 2.0 or Viper Skin. Hell even the XLR.

Do yourself a favor and get either a Remington 700 action or something with the same footprint (Templar, etc) so you have tons of options...like others have said, I'd go used if you need to save cash for the scope.

And the Bushnell DMR 3.5-21X50 G2 looks like a hell of a scope for the money. GAP uses it on some videos on the hide, check it out. They helped design it.

So this wasn't in the original running, but how does the Sendero stack up to the rest of the rifles mentioned like the 700p, LTR, etc. While I like the detachable box mags on the Tikka (even though it is still in the running), and the Savage, it seems as though the 700 series has enough aftermarket to keep me satisfied where the others are lacking. Thanks for all the help guys.

A sendero will have a varmint barrel and an HS stock with an aluminum chassis.
It's basically a 700p with a blued finish instead of parkerizing.

Savage model 10 + Choate stock + harris style bipod = more money left for a decent scope.

JAE stock is a nice-have, not a must-have. Wait time from order to delivery is ridiculous.

Randall you crack me up.

I can just say that I am in nearly the same boat as you, and after looking at it all I am trying to find a 700 I like. Because of the availability of aftermarket parts it just makes sense.

How many decades has it been around? Something doesn't last this long in the gun world without being good.

The 700 is a refinement of the model 721 and 722 and was released as the 700 in 1962.
The major change from the earlier 722 (short action) and 721 (long action) is the safety cut into the side of the tang instead of the safety cut into the stock inletting.
Also, the 721/722 bolt knobs had a different shape.
The parts are otherwise interchangeable.
The 721/722 were introduced in 1948.

My oldest 700 is from 1963.

Well, finally getting there. Got my money, now the search is on for ANY rifle, much less the exact one I want. I'm slowly biding my time waiting for the right rifle to come along as a donor for the heart and soul. Then I will change out the stock and other parts on it as needed/wanted.

Well having owned two Remmy 5R's (VERY disappointing), a Savage 12 LRPV (another big disappointment) and a bunch of Tikka's....my vote would be Tikka.

There is plenty of aftermarket support for Tikka's now days if/when you want to upgrade.

Stocks:

http://mannersstocks.com/tikka-t3-sako-q22/

http://www.stockysstocks.com/servlet...n-Tikka/Detail

http://shop.helmickarms.com/TIKKA-T3-Stocks_c3.htm

http://tikkaperformance.com/index.ph...path=156_59_62

http://www.kineticresearchgroup.com/products/w3c.php

http://www.xlrindustries.com/

Bottom metal that accepts AI mags:

http://www.cdiprecisiongunworks.com/

20 MOA scope base:

http://www.egwguns.com/tikka/tikka-t...l-scope-mount/

Bolt handle (no gunsmithing required/drop in) and bolt shrouds:

http://www.hss.net.au/index.php?cPath=118

Triggers....the factory trigger is VERY good. I work mine over and can get them down to a crisp, no creep, 8oz. But you can use a TRG-22 two stage on the Tikka T3...again, drop in no smithing. Or these aftermarket ones:

http://www.jardinc.com/index.php?opt...id=4&Itemid=40

http://accurateshooter.net/Products/cgtriggerdata.pdf

So....not sure how much more aftermarket support you would want/need....but as you can see all your bases are covered. Anything that you can do to a Remmy or Savage, you can do with a Tikka.
And...the Tikka action is a VERY strong action being a closed top action. The barrel tennon of the action is almost 1"! You can hang a big barrel off these actions.
The bolt throw is 75 deg. vs the much longer throw of a Savage,etc.
Side bolt stop/release.
SUPPER smooth action.
Sako extractor
Very true actions. Out of the 12+ we built ONE needed a very minor bit of receiver face truing.
Bolt faces are extremely true and the firing pin hole is extremely tight...if you ever plan on going to a caliber that uses small rifle primers like the 6.5X47,etc., no need to have the firing pin hole bushed...unlike a Remmy.

So....for what its worth.

Stan, you're selling me on the tikkas man! I have been seriously looking for a T3 stainless varmint but nothing so far. I love the smooth action compared to the savages that is for sure. I really dont like the mag system much and how much they cost. We will see what pops up first.

Check out the FN SPR A4 at tacticalcoordination.com. Great deal for sub MOA.

I agree with the factory bottom "metal" and mags. But for a couple hundred bucks you can install CDI bottom metal and use AI type mags (I personally use Alpha Mags: http://www.alphaindmfg.com/store/ ) over the AI mags except with m y .223 as the AI mags are the only options for that caliber.

Here is a video of some of my Tikka's as well as a bunch of the long range hunting Tikka action based rifles we did awhile back:

New Tikka Sporter in .260 ... Done... Well maybe a paint job on that noxious stock. Or call Shnyder in Iowa, he will build you a 700 with a Brux or Krieger barrel, choice of color finish, and a trigger for $1400

There are a host of reasons to buy a Tikka, and all of them coincide with keeping it pretty stock.

If you want the aftermarket bells and whistles (eventually, ever) buy a R700. Pretty simple, it doesnt seem like this really should to be said on every page of every one of these threads - but it's going to.

Really? So YOU as a smith Randall can not turn a 1X16 TPI thread? That is what the Tikka T3 barrel thread pitch is. Pretty much any decent smith that can re-barrel a Remmy should have no issues re-barreling a Tikka.

There are some very well known smiths on the hide that re-barrel Tikka's often.

Not sure why you have all the hate for the Tikka, but at least talk about things you KNOW about vs things you don't or you make yourself look the fool. Just say'in.


Take care,Stan

ah, thats right, it's the sakos with the funky metric threading then.
Tikkas are the ones that wont come apart without cutting the tennon forward of the receiver.

Chesebro Rifles, he has a T3 in .22-250 and a tactical in .223

There's also an M55 in .308, not sure of its progeny, but I'm sure it's a pre-T3 if you will...

Here is mine:

My Savage: 1/8MOA at 550yards w/ witnesses



So, what have we established? The Tikka, 700 and Savage can shoot given the right shooter mods and ammo?

This is ground breaking, guys.

My info is from my own experience.

I made a set of action wrench heads for my Brownells wrench and an aluminum split bushing for my Brownells barrel vice and still count not get the t3 apart that came into my shop for work.
I chickened out on the heat at about 500 degrees as I did not want to damage the heat treating.
What's your trick to getting them apart?

Sounds like you may have gotten one that was cross threaded? We use the same type setup for removing the barrels. If you taper your aluminum bushing for the barrel wrench, it helps get a better grip on the barrel. As you know there is not a lot of surface area on the factory barrels before they start to taper.

The newer ones do seem to be torqued on a bit more then the older ones, but again we have had no real issues getting them off the receiver.

There's also an M55 in .308, not sure of its progeny, but I'm sure it's a pre-T3 if you will...

Appreciate the lead, but I should have specified a T3 series, HBAR, with a 20" or greater barrel in .308 only.

You dont need to spend 2k.
ditto. I have taken hogs at 400yds with my howa. it is all about how frequently you shoot and become more confident at longer range.

Did you read the title where the OP states he wants a precision rifle, and not just a hunting rig?

700 5r
Good stock
Bottom metal if you shoot those types of matches.
Extra mag
20 moa base
Good rings
Harris bipod

Well under 2k for the gun and bits, add another 1-2k for a good 5 power scope. If your going to spend 2k on optics.. Just spend the extra $500 for a S&B, US Optics, or PR.


Sell new take off stock in the marketplace.

Hey Dillo, I have a 5r sitting in my safe if you wanted to try it out first. I'm heading your direction tomorrow afternoon and at least you could check it out in person. If you got somewhere to shoot it let me know. It's in a Mcree chassis, but I could pop it back in the stock it came with. Just send me a pm or give me a call B4 I head up north.

Those are both semi-automatic battle rifles.
The OP said he was looking for a precision rifle.
We are talking about 1/4 moa capable guns, not 1 moa capable guns.
