    It should fit,a 721 is a long action so make sure its a long action 700 base you get.

    It would be best to find a vintage mount if you can; one marked 721,725,700LA. I'm not positive but modern 700s are sightly different then the 721/early 700s and I believe the early mount follows the pre '74 dimensions.

    600remguy is spot on. You will need to source a pre 74 700 mount which are hard to find. It's easier to find a 721 mount. If you use a post 74 700 mount, you will need to install a 0.017 shim under the rear (bridge) of the mount.
