i dont mind wating. I was looking into getting the beaded and floating barrel with a heavy bull barrel. Not sure on contour yet. And no clue which basses and rings to go towards. Also was looking at blueprinting the action and truing the barrel as well
I am in the final stages of a build that was darn near identical to what you have when i started. I started with a standard 700BDL 30-06 that was "minute of deer." The modifications if you want to call them that are as follows:
I put a HART 28" heavy bull barrel with diamond fluting chambered for 300WM and put a new bolt with tactical style bolt knob i forget the maker with sako style extractor so i wouldnt have to have the old factory bolt milled out and hope it fit the way it was supposed to.
Swapped the old trigger with a Jewel that is set to 10 oz
AICS AX chassis. A cheaper chassis will work like a whiskey III or a JP enterprises but if i was spending the money i wasnt gonna settle for a few hundred dollar difference.
Used a badger ordnance one piece base and Vortex matched rings holding a Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 FFP MRAD.
Gonna be sending it to black ice for a black teflon finish to protect it and make it match.
Its an extensive rebuild that i started 3 years ago and should be done by the middle of summer. In total i have spent roughly 3600-3900 including gunsmith fees so not all that bad for a custom built LR gun considering most guns with similar specs can cost nearly 2x as much
