Edi ( Ejg) probably knows that I rate his advise highly. His statement, that he prefers a customized remmy above any sako, rises some questions for me.
What customizing needs a Rem 700 to become an ultra reliable stalking rifle and not become as expensive as a Sauer 202 or a R93.
What are my goals ? Light in weight ( about 2.9 to 3kg) , stock weather/rain resistant for worst Scottish conditions, triggerpressure between 2 and 3 pounds, adding a bipod without loss in accuracy, reliable feeding the cartridges, accuracy 3 bullets in 1 inch at 100 metres with good factory ammo .
Just a light accurate rifle that doesn't let you down.
