Utilized a spare R700 308 action that I had sitting in the back of the safe.  Used a Criterion match Rem/Age barrel from NSS and their nut and recoil lug.  Tossed in a KRG Bravo Chassis.  Have done barrel break in with some factory loaded ammo and gotten some 3 shot groups at 100yds in the .33 range. Topped with a Viper PST currently.   Just ordered a m16 extractor kit for the bolt and while I'm milling that out I'm going to go ahead and machine the bolt to accept an extended knob.  It fed and extracted fine but noticed the extractor is missing a small piece out of it so why not go ahead and swap to something a bit stronger. 

Very happy with how the Rem/age system worked.  Just like a savage, super easy with tools I already had and a head space gauge. 

Problem I'm running into is finding 6.5 bullets in the 120gr range.

I've got some less than 100gr bullets and some 140s but want to try some of the 120-123s
