After sorting through a bunch of inherited firearms, I've got some duplication in calibers/actions and will indulge a long-time desire to build a 500 yard gun in 25-06.
Question is...is stainless a big deal for the action on which to base an accurate hunting rifle (i.e. not a BR rifle)? I've got both old and new Mod. 70's (some blue actions, some SS actions) and a couple of 700's (all blued) and one of the 700's would be a good donor gun for reasons other than the action....which is good and firm, but is blued.
Maybe not a gunsmithing (versus hunting or shooting) question, but since this may end up with a regular poster on this forum, thought it would be a good place to start.
