    FWIW, buzz on the net is that some Wal-Mart's are clearing out some 700 ADL's for $184. Not all stores and not all ADL's but if you've been following the last few years it's the same kind of thing they've been doing in August.

    The other thing I've been reading is despite the reputation of Big Green lately one of the things they've been doing right is the 700's actions. Apparently the CNC machining is putting out some good stuff. If you can get one of these ADL's for about $200 with tax, sell the stock and takeoff barrel for half that, then you're into a new 700 action for about $100. Good place to start a build.

      I'm happy with Big Green too and use their actions often in custom precision rifles. I recently trued a new action and they are very well finished. The front ot the receiver was only off by about 010" side-to-side and the interior bolt lugs where only off by .004". The interior bolt lugs on theone I did had a strange rounding near the wall of the perimeter that put bolt lockup about .010" off, only allowed bolt lug lockup on the exterior of one lug. It had to be trimmed to be true. Otherwise the action was great. It shoots excellent after the new barrel was addded. I fully realize that most 700s are not advisable for shots beyond about 300 yards but have bedded several factory models that are deadly at 500 yards for hunting. 5R rifling is good in that it reduces fouling but hasn't proven to be more precise than other forms of rifling.. I use 5R exclusiveoy when I can for that reason.
