I'm building a custom 30-06 AI. Bartlein barrel, #4, SS, fluted, which will weigh 2.86 lbs. HS Precision stock, #09, slight LOP adjustment, should weight ~ 2.1 lbs. Can anyone shed some light on how much weight the action, trigger guard, action screws, etc will add to the build. I'm looking at a M70 action or the Remington 700 action (can't decide). I like the controlled feed and safety on the M70 but it's clear the Remington 700 action has a lot of fans. After extensive research, I really can't find any good information on the weight of each action from the manufacturer or from those who are selling the actions. I don't have the cash to buy a 1K custom action and I don't think I need one since I'm not using this for long range competition or bench rest competition. It's strictly a hunting rifle. I would be satisfied with a 0.5-0.75" group and extremely pleased with a 0.25-0.5" group at 100 yards. Ideal weight would be between 8-8.5 lbs fully dressed.
