      I have had some “thinking time” the last few days and have contemplated a Remy 700 in 300 BLK. Being the DIY type, I want to get an inexpensive Walmart .223 version and convert it.  I have heard that those conversions have a lot of trouble with ejection. Have any of you fine fellows any experience with this? If it is true then what is the best solution? Would a different brand of rifle be a better choice? Interested in any and all options.

       

      Thanks

      I lean toward the Remington versus the Ruger, but no flies on the Ruger,  Winchester, or Savage.

      The Remington has more aftermarket items available than the Ruger, but if its a budget rifle that is not setup true tactical then that would not be a concern.

      The Savage is a good option in closing

      Sarge is correct, although in this particular case, I can’t think of a Ruger that would be worth considering. The Savage Axis would be a great choice, especially if you like the idea of a lightweight rifle. Even if you don’t, the axis is very viable with a heavy barrel and a laminated stock readily available from Boydes. I think you could get into the complete rifle, barrel and stock for less than the 700.
