    Gunnut, thanks for your service sir. Check out the guys in the link below. Norm & Rocky Chandler have been there and done that. They know of what they speak.
    Stick with a Remington 700 platform. That way you have lots of options. There are more pieces parts for the 700 than any other bolt gun.

    Stay safe sir.

    One thing you could do is buy a 700 action and have a Benchrest grade gunsmith build a rifle for you. Be careful to get somebody who knows what the hell their doing and not just some shadetree pipefitter. Here is a link to some good smiths. Please remember good work is neither cheap or quick.

    Thanks for the links.After drooling over those beautifull long arms for a half hour or so,I decided to look into the remington 700 platform.I think i may have settled on the 700 p(Police model),It's pretty affordable in the 800 dollar range.Now all i have to do is figure out what kind of glass i need for it.:)
