Questions about these actions, I have done 6 rifle builds for myself on Rem 700 actions and am setup for them. I have a Win mod 70 in 300 Weatherby Mag and wanted to play with it. Would you follow the same setup as the Rems. I took the barrel off and noticed the the receiver barrels threads are interupted if you will on each side. Is there any cautions I should be awear of if I go ahead and true this thing up. Any information would be greatly appriciated.
Thanks in advanced.

Anyone out there able to comment on M70 truing vs R700 truing? How much better/worse is M70 out of the box?

More specifically, in my case, I’m looking at FN TSR XP. I haven’t sent more than 120rds through it, and that was a decade ago. It has the Hogue overmolded green squishy stock it came in and I want to drop it in a Manners, probably with their mini chassis system so I won’t have to bed it (doesn’t need bedding right?). Given I’m going to be in for a grand on the stock, should I really think about dropping the coin to get it trued?

I’m going to redbarrel it in .260 (from .308). Eventually. But I’m thinking first I’ll have it threaded for a brake and burn out the factory barrel. Assuming it will hold 1-3/4 MOA as is, what’s the long term benefit to truing outside increased accuracy?
