Remington 700P?

http://www.remingtonle.com/rifles/700p.htm

Would this be a good starting point for a 308 bolt? They don't mention the trigger though.

Also looking at a Savage 10 FCP-K.

And for some reason I was checking out the Howa Heavy Barreled varmiter:

or if you want a new rifle with a 5R barrel for $390 after rebate, the thompson center venture is a decent MOA platform that is afordable to start on.

Any thoughts on the 700 5R milspec?

Looks like savage put out some 5Rs also, except they have non-stainless barrels that are threaded. One has HS precision stock i think.

Eric, I'm like 25+ lbs overweight and have borderline HBP, plus I eat like a fricking moron (had like 1/2 a mason jar of chicken liver pate and a few strips of pork belly for dinner!).

The groups are right on top of each other. on the wrong target but that can be fixed. It spent the weekend home with a friend that'll have it all straightened out.

I didn't shoot all weekend b/c I had the kids and bad weather.

The stock is awesome. Fit finish and feel of her, it's a steal. $390 after rebate for a rifle this accurate and with this meant to be feel, is hard to come buy.

meaning I picked up savage bolt actions and they're JUNK for feel, too much looseness where your left hand is, doesn't feel solid and sturdy.. Remington walmart specials are junk even with a scope at that price. The TCV compares well to a rem 700.
