    Rem 700 for 400 ??

    Hi all. I've been offered a rem 700, in .260, which I have a slot for, for 400. It's a very light barrel, comes scoped, and fitted with a timney trigger fitted, and has dies and brass.
    The reason for my slot, is for a long range target gun in 260, so this really isn't the gun I'm after, but is it worth me buying it, and keeping the dies, and selling the rifle on for a poss donor rifle for somebody else's custom build ?

    Will I get my money back and gain some foc dies ?

    Opinions please...

    I'd buy it and build your target rifle on the action , you can always buy a custom action later if you want , many of them are built on the 700 shape so should be an easy fit?
    Right where's those stones , I'll start !

    C'mon Russ, I think you know my take on remmys. Besides, I've just bought that tikka from Tiff as my donor action, and it's booked in with Paddy for the work

    I forgot you were an action snob !

    Id say you'd get your money back no worries by the sound of it ?

    Why go through all that hassle for the sake of a set of dies? I recon it`s 400 badly spent.
    Leave the Remmy where it is and just buy some dies.
    You can't say muntjac without saying, Mmmmmm.

    I agree to much bother for the dies.
