So I found one of these for a good price figured the barreled action was worth the less than $500. It came with a cheap scope and bipod. Probably keep the bipod.

Plans of now are a magpul hunter and probably 10x supersniper. Might do the trigger too but I will keep every body informed.

Should be interesting...

SA? LA? What do you plan on doing with it?
Link Posted: 2/9/2018 9:45:38 AM EDT
Good luck OP everyone starts somewhere. Have fun shooting the barrel out before you swap to the heart of the new build. I would skip the Magpul stock and either start at the low end with a B&C medalist or go on up to the Manners. My 0.02C worth. The Magpul is alright but it's not quite as rigid as I like.

This will be a .308,
Main use would be target steel and paper with the majority being at 100, with diminishing opurtuinty as the range increases longest shots being 600-800.

Maybe take a whitetail/ called coyote.

Plan on dusting off the scales/press for this one, should I try only sizing the neck? The other rifle I’ve reloaded precision for was a semi so it got full length.

That's sort of like the project I just began except my starting point is a savage 110 in 30-06. I have a super sniper 12x to put on it but I have a 2 piece mount on the rifle and I am having a bitch of a time getting the rings to line up right. Good luck with your build and I hope it goes smooth for you.

I'm finishing off my present project shortly - converting an early 80's BDL Varmint into a VN era M40 look-a-like; just need to get the action clip slotted & the barrel channel on the 60's sporter stock opened up.

If (when?) I do another 700 SA build, I fancy trying to make an XM3 style rifle.
One of THE good things about the platform, there are a good number of variants out there to look to for inspiration

Have fun & post pics of the results!

So guys, looking at the krg bravo, after bottom” metal” this seems like a good value? I’ve only handled the magpul, would it be worth the extra $50 bucks or so?

Keep in mind this is an adl, so a selling point is the dbm. Both are aics mags correct?

Yes, both take AICS mags.  I'd personally prefer the bravo because I like the ergonomics better, particularly the vertical grip.

So I took the new to me rifle out yesterday,  20 rounds 168 gr.  Fed gmm. Printed a couple real nice groups at 100 but it was inconsistent, the glass sucks but is mounted solidly.
I’m torn as to what to replace first the glass or stock?

The vtr stock ,,,, I kinda like the design but it doesn’t fit me at all no cheekweld, with a cheekweld im looking throug the bases  but .....

Anyway what’s first stock or glass,
Link Posted: 2/26/2018 10:15:24 AM EDT
Stock then glass then barrel.
Link Posted: 6/26/2018 12:39:55 AM EDT
Glass, stock, barrel. I have the SPS Varmint stock and with a consistent position, I can get <1 inch at 100 yards with 168 GMM.
Lets see the rifle!

Ok small update, went with the magpul, complete with dbm, and krg pull. and swapped the cheap bipod for a Harris I had lying around, glass is next,

I’m floored how much difference the stock makes, way more shootable, put 20 cheap m80 rounds down today, and while it wasn’t on paper it was shooting well at a rough 300.

I know it’s been a while but I got distracted by the glut of dirt cheap ar pistol kits at psa, if anyone wants to help me with pics I’ll message or email to ya,

Hey, I see you are also in Kansas. I'm kind of in the same boat. Traded for a 700 adl 223. It already has an aftermarket barrel. The wood stock has been pillared and bedded. The bedding job needs redone but I'd rather have a wide forearm for a rest. Looked at the magpul. Not sure what direction I'm going.
Link Posted: 3/18/2019 8:58:40 PM EDT
Krg bravo would be a good one to consider
Link Posted: 3/22/2019 11:39:12 AM EDT
I'm doing a budget 700 adl build too.  A buddy that shoots PRS swapped all his XLR chassis to MPA and blew out the XLRs cheap so I bought one and then found an unfired adl with a Timney trigger cheap.  Another PRS shooter friend won a Nikon FX1000 Black 4-14 and made me a deal on it.  I'm now just waiting on rings from Optics Planet.  I should have a pretty decent chassis rifle with a good trigger and optic for about the price of most off the shelf chassis rifles.

Ok so newest update,

The rifle is nearing completion ,
Rem 700 all tactical, magpul hunter 700 with dbm, vortex diamondback tactical ffp in 6-24 moa flavor. In Burris tac rings.

So it’s a beast, under moa so far (just, .75 to just under at 100, with fgmm 175)

Trigger is next, like the trigger tec, but no over travel talk has me thinking maybe something else...

Probably gonna shoot it as is for a while.
If someone wants to host for me I’ll send pics later

They are on all my ars,

I’ve had to start asking for extra stickers lol,
Only the fed election have that particular sticker and I think it fits.

So finally ponied up for a range membership at the closest range that goes past 300, and was able to make consistent hits out to 500 on a steel coyote,

Realized that without a spotter and or a break I was wasting ammo, would lose the target under recoil.

Probably gonna put a fixed stock on my recce ish ar.o don’t like the feel of the shitty collapsable I had on it. An a2 works and feels better.

Ok stretched it out, 1100yds yesterday ....

Did good!
