When doing a smokeless build on a Remington is it easier to use a centerfire action or one from a Remington ML or is it required that you use one or the other. Also, I currently have a Encore ML; is that an easier route to go? Just buy a barrel from SMI or convert a 45-70 barrel? I hear there can be issues with 45-70 barrels having too large of a diameter to shoot without knurling the bullets. Sorry for all the questions but wanting to know which direction everyone recommends going?
Thanks

It's cheaper to do it off a 45-70 conversion. Buying an Encore barrel from SMI will give you a Douglas 50 cal barrel which is great as long as you want a 50 cal and not a 45. Just depends on what you intend to do with it.

Both a Remington CF action or a ML action can be used for the build but generally they are built off a ML action. Knurling isn't that big of a deal and could still be necessary with any smokeless ML you build. None of these guns are generally plug and chug setups. You gotta tinker with them a little.

I have several guns that require knurling, and others that just are way more accurate with knurling even using BH209. Knurling is easy.

Remington 700 ML will be the easier of the two Remington to convert.

Unless I'm missing something completely (been known to happen), I have a strong feeling you don't know what the crap you are talking about. Yet you still inserted that foot in your mouth. When you aren't educated about something, you stay silent.

I agree with ratsnake. Seems as if this Walkintall fellow is walking tall, in a tree, up his [censored]...

This place doesn't often attract that kind of crowd.

I have differences of opinion here and there, but this dude just called a member a fool that we would be reading about blowing himself up.

AND

HE HAS NO KNOWLEDGE OF THE SUBJECT BEING DISCUSSED!

No place for that here.

He asked a simple question... you won't gain any points on this forum putting people down.
