    Just letting people know who do their own stock work that the Lapua Atlas is not a true 700 footprint so they know what to expect before finding out it doesnt fit their 700 long action stock.

    The standard long action and short action might have a slightly different story. My experience is only with the Lapua size action.

    If that's really a problem for you, then go buy a Black Bear.

    That should solve wallet and black paint issues for awhile. :)

    That black bear is crazy smooth.

    I had a manners elite with a mini chassis. If the black bear would have fit I would have. I like the flat bottom it just did work as easy with what I had. I recently bought a bench rest rifle in 30br using a kelbleys panda action. It’s smooth and shoots very Well.

    Triggers should be free floating. Some bottom metal with touch pins that protrude from the trigger. This happens more on some triggers than others. In those cases opening up the bottom metal is necessary.
