Well last year I bought a Remington 700 in 30'06. It's one of a few 30cal rifles I didn't have. Always wanted one but I had a plethora of 30 cals so I was patient and caught an 06 on sale at academy. Naturally I brought it home and started tearing it apart. The great thing about this rifle was that it already had a satin finish and a mid weight barrel as opposed to the light sporter weight. I didn't really want to go with a heavy barrel on this one as I wanted to keep the weight down. So, I took the cheap Tupperware stock and trashed it for a magpull. I then replaced the bottom metal and internal box magazine with a detachable mag. Upgraded the trigger and topped it with a steel 20 moa rail and vortex 4-12 scope. It was an easy build with all drop in parts unlike my 300 mag which I worked on for almost 2 years before it was finished. Welp here's the end result and I can't wait to shoot it.
