The first regards my planned "deer" rifle build :cool: I cant seem to find a heavy barrel Remington 700 in a Long Action chambered in 30-06. I did see (still looking into it) that Savage does offer a heavy barrel 30-06, sooooo theres a chance Ill be building my next rifle on something other than a Remington 700 :/

My second more crucial problem, is I got my bolt back today with a fresh Tac-Ops knob installed on it, and Im working 7 days a week, so I cant go shoot :mad:

I, SYMPATHIZE WITH YOU AND ENVIE YOU AT THE SAME TIME. I PERSONALLY HAVE PLENTY OF
TIME TO SHOOT(WEATHER PERMITTING) SINCE I ONLY GET TO WORK 28 HRS. A WEEK.....SMALL
PAY CHECKS! WISH I COULD WORK MORE .....DAMN ECONOMY. BUT ON THE OTHER HAND, TOO MUCH WORK MAKES JACK A DULL BOY. BUT, I WAS NOT AWARE SAVAGE STILL MADE A 30-06 IN HEAVY BARELL,THEY REALLY, DO SHOOT WELL!!! WHERE DID YOU GET THE KNOB DONE? AND
HOW MUCH WAS THE COST? I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A COUPLE BOLTS DONE.

Hmmm. I'm not 100% sure they still make the heavy barrel 06. Dammit, now I gotta spend more time surfing the Internet looking instead of doing real work!

I am not really sure that Remington ever made a .30-06 heavy barrel 700. Maybe way back in the late 60's or early 70's a few model 40's in .30-06. Check with Brownell's to see if they still sell 700 actions in .30-06 length. Then just do a straight out custom. Or go to your local gun shop to see if they might have an old 700 .30-06 beater tht you could salvage the action from. Then build your custom. That might be the cheaper way to go. An old beater complete would be cheaper than a new 700 action.

Sorry about that Mr. Hotshot, since you started this thread out talking about a 700 and since this site is basically about 700s, I just assumed you were still interested in building on a 700 action.

So, my bad. Didn't mean to be a bother. Go ahead with your Savage. I won't butt in again.

No bother. I want a 700, but it's gonna be primarly a hunting rifle so I'm planning to keep a reasonable budget. I saw yesterday where savage offer(ed) a heavy barrel in a 30-06 chambering so that would eliminate the extra cost of re-barreling.
