I wanted to start a rifle build but after a while of trying to figure it out,looking and looking at stuff, I have never pulled the trigger or started anything. But a month ago, I caught this rifle on Gunbroker already put together and had to have it. Plus it ended up being a great deal.  

6.5x55 caliber ,Remington 700 .30-06 style action, Timney trigger set at 2.75lbs, 22" #5 Hart or Lilja barrel(according to the previous owner), McMillan stock glass/pillar bedded. It is cerakoted in desert tan. I was having a time with the Talley rings digging into the scope finish so I opted for Luepolds.

I sent my bolt off to Kampfeld to have it fluted, face opened, and campfire knob installed. He cerakoted it too and my rings and bases. Karl does great work(just like everyone says) and fast, I had all of this back in SC within a week of shipping it to him. Can't say enough, awesome service!!

What do you guys think?

That's super nice! Love it. 

I've been wanting to do the same to my Rem bolt. 

Talley rings "digging into scope finish"?? Shocked
HUH??? I'm assuming you tightened them to the correct torque specs?

If at first you don't secede...try..try again.

More likely the bases are not entirely properly lined-up.
