You will get no such flaming from me my friend.I know I will get flamed for this because I guess nobody takes a Remington 700 to Africa but here goes. My wife”the boss” has a Remington 700 Mtn rifle in 280. U can get the rifle in 30:06. People either love this rifle or hate it. It’s small, lightweight and fits my wife great. She’s only 5’3”. She’s used it for 30 years. It shoots almost all factory ammo under 1” moa and with reloads it will do better. All we’ve done to it is bed it and have a trigger job done. She’s harvested from jackal to eland in 4 trips to Africa. It’s never jammed or had any problem. Even after she dropped it in the sand at Kowas this year when the tripod fell over when we were taking pictures!! And yes after 30 years she has named it the widow maker and it’s the only rifle she wants!
Action BobRuger Guide Gun in 30-06. Comes with Stainless and laminate, 20" threaded barrel, and adjustable stock via spacers. And iron sights. And it is very economical.
I believe it also comes in 300 win mag but have to ask "why"? A 30-06 will do almost everything the 300 will except for extreme long range and with a 20" barrel, are you really getting any more out of it other than more bang and flame?
Then go all out on the scope and suppressor. Get her a great pair of binos if she hasn't allready got them. Nice women's camo, backpack....
BeeMaaAnyone here have experience with Legendary Arms Works?
Considering their Professional II.
Much like MRC, they will shorten LOP, barrel and thread...for additional $$ of course.
Currently under consideration (in no particular order)

Full on custom jobbie...but we shall see
We ended up going a completely different route.BeeMaa
As someone else said full custom job. I've gone that route and it's not much more than a good factory job.
Find a,good donor action and go from there.
BeeMaaWe ended up going a completely different route.
The wife tried on a Blaser R8 Intuition at Euro Optic and it was over.
She loved the wood and I love the rifle system so we are now a Blaser family.
Hers is being channeled out to handle the safari weight barrels...in Germany.BeeMaa
Might not be the CRF you wanted but happy wife happy life mate. Hopefully you can shoot it too.
Cheers mate Bob
