I have a 700 BDL, and im about to order a schneider 24" contour # 7. Can anyone go over the way a 700's barrel is set up, is it threaded into the action? And how to go about changing barrels.

Hey Badboy,

Changing a barrel on a remington 700 is a job for a qualified gunsmith. Yes the barrel has to be threaded and indexed where it screws into the action. And if you go with a barrel that is larger in diameter than the original, the stock must be inleted to allow for the larger barrel. Also, the chamber work is critical as is the fitting of the bolt face to the back end of the barrel. Bottom line, the better gunsmith you use to do the work, the better your rifle will shoot.

Sincerely,
Dave (Bubba) Thornblom

Thanks for the input, the reason i was asking was because im about to have an A-4 Tactical stock from mcmillan made and i was going to send in the barrelled action in and have it glass bedded with aluminum pillars, well the action bedded not the barrel of course. I havent change to the heavy barrel yet so i guess i'll have a gunsmith do it and just leave it out of the stock.
