I have a 7-08 semi custom Instock.. No patients needed
Best thing find one already built, save 20% to 50% look around they turn up often. I just saw a sweet re barreled 220 swift ruger 77 tang safety gun. He wanted 800 for it and it was a shooter, heck if it was a PAC-nor like he said the rebarrel job was over $600...There out there.
Have a M1A Scout, never read any of the reviews on it but never had an issue with it. From the first year production of the Scout, wood stock, has gone bang ever time and hogs really do not like it, well dead hogs really don't have much to say anyway. That is one fun gun.
