    What kind of wrench will you be using on the action? Remington actions can be a real beast to get off if you aren't set up for it. Oh! Better get the loan of a recoil lug positioning jig while you're at it.~Muir

    Remington 700's it would seem are often glued in as well. Takes up the sloppy threading job you know. This is why blue printers re-cut the threads so they are then to a known spec.

    If its a factory barrel, you will struggle to get the barrel off without heat application and or relieving the barrel shoulder with a parting tool….

    Most 700's have to come apart this way and with a very sturdy barrel vice and action wrench...
