Now that the .300 is gone I'm wanting to build a .223,which was the whole reason for selling it. I want it in a bolt rifle. Started looking on the internet and other places for an action to use like maybe a mini Mauser or something but dang theres nothing out there affordable with the smaller bolt face. So maybe I should just buy a rifle or go with building a 22-250.

How much do you want to spend? That will help make the decision.

$300 to $400 for the action,I found a Remington action on Auction Arms but really don't want to go with a Remy.

Have you thought about one of the stainless Savage target actions. They should be in the price range you're talking about and would be hard pressed to beat. Lots of folks use them for varmint and bench rifles.

Most rifles in the pawn shops in my area are around $400. After you strip the action of trigger group, barrel, and stock(to be sold on various guns forums)you'll end up paying for truing of the action and a bit towards rebarrel.

Look at the CZ. Tiny little Mauser CRF action, fully adjustable trigger, and they are awesome shooters!

Cooper also doesn't make a repeater in .223.
