What makes the 770 so much cheaper? Been wondering this myself for a while.

Dont be hatin on the Tikka! I'll take one $500 Tikka action over two $1000 Stillers.

But yes the 770 isn't worth looking into the 700 has proven itself but it will need a Timney trigger.

I am looking to build a rifle, tactical stock heavy barrel and lighter trigger? which 700 would be the best? Can I use an old ADL action and modify to my liking?

Short action in a 308 bolt face. Long action, long action magnum bolt face. Any will do it.

Yes, an ADL will work fine. This is what is called a donor rifle. In the end all you're using is the action, so get it as cheap as you can because they are all created equal.

Would it matter what caliber I got if I was going to get a new barrel? The barrel is what chambers the cartridge, correct?
