    Thanks for the info guys! What I'm thinking about is making a semi custom 300 mag. I was looking at taking apart a Winchester extreme weather because I don't really like the stock. But I've also been looking at the Dakota as I think I could put a stock on a barreled action for not too much more than the Winchester with a new stock. Edellweis, are any of those actions you mentioned stainless?

    To clarify my question, I am looking to work on a stainless controlled round feed with a nice synthetic stock.

    DCannon, what are you looking to spend and I can give you some good options.

    And what options do you want on it?

    Check out these:

    They also have "production" models that are pretty nice, and are a little over a grand.

    Edelweiss, I was thinking around $2500, maybe a little more. I would probably go with a #3 taper barrel, & a brown precision stock if he still does elephant hide on them. Maybe a teflon coat too, not sure about that though. Also, do all actions with a mauser claw need a both in the barrel, or is it only Winchester?

    I have looked at the MRC rifles, & they just don't feel very good to me. It was very rough & just seemed overly heavy.

    Was that a "production" MRC or a high country custom?

    The high country guns are pretty light, IMO. They also have a tiny 5 lb. ultralight.

    Even the production guns seem to smooth out after a little breaking in.

    Just another option to look at for controlled round feed.

    Here's a price out

    A Dakota 76 is about $2200 for the action from Brownells, you might find a cheaper one by looking around.

    A 2nd hand FN Winchester M70 long action can be had for somewhere between 650-800. You could use a 2nd hand New Haven or even a pre-64, but less quality from both of those.

    Barrel blank from Krieger, Lilja, Hart, Schneider about $300-400.

    Talley Lightweight 2-Piece Scope Mounts with Integral Rings $45.99

    Might as well change out the firing pin and spring $59.99

    Jewell Rifle Trigger $240

    Brown stock $900

    Cerakote $250-400

    True action, face receiver, replace firing pin, chamber and fit barrel, springs and lap lugs for contact. $800

    I think you could probably have what you wanted for somewhere between $3000-5000.

    You could save quite a bit by getting a 2nd hand Winchester action and sending it to Hart to true and install one of their barrels.

    Hart charges $1015, to true, lap lugs, fit and chamber one of their barrels, including the barrel for a CM barrel. That's an outstanding buy.

    Bedding a stock is stupid easy, and you could buy a stock from someone else and bed it way cheaper than giving Brown $900 for his.
