So I've always had a love affair with the Remington 700. I had one in 223 RH (I'm LH) that never really turned me on since now that I have real LH bolt guns I can't warm up to a wrong handed one. Plus short/narrow cases don't work so hot w/ the factory Remington extractor unless you really crank on the bolt handle. I've been kicking around the idea of putting a LH 700 together, using a factory stainless action, or springing for something much nicer and building from a Shilen DRG or DGV action (700 footprint w/ Savage threads and floating bolt head made by Stiller, 2x the $, but much easier to change calibers down the line if desired). Anyone know how good the current crop of 700 actions is, i've heard they are much closer to spec and don't require as much "blueprinting" work as older actions. I really don't have much of a legitimate NEED for a new rifle, but it is nice to own nice things, and sometimes the satisfaction of owning something cool far outweighs it's uselessness LOL. The rifle range at my club goes to 200 yards, not really anything longer without a long drive unless you find a friendly farmer. Not really much of a hunter, but I would like to get into predator hunting. Already have a RECCE style AR and a Tikka 595, both in 223, so I really don't need/want another 223. Not looking for anything with big recoil either, so probably more or less limited to something 6mm or smaller.. Handloading doesn't scare me (don't really want to get into fireforming, neck turning, ect, but not a dealbreaker), esoteric calibers don't scare me, wildcats don't scare me. In fact, I'm more inclined toward something out of the ordinary. So what direction should I look? Basically narrowed down to something in 6mm. 6BR (probably most logical/easiest), 6PPC (probably most work), 6 Creedmoor, 6XC.
