So would you guys recommend one on my Remington XCR 300 ultra mag? If so, what would end up being my total cost and how big of a pain in the ass would it be?

What will I be gaining. I have already put this much dough in the gun, I might as well spend a little more if it will be an improvement. I have never changed a bolt on any of my Remingtons, first time for everything.

And if its only about need, taxidermy is not a need. That would be silly.

Its never about need when it comes to rifles or handguns. Even if it was a need for a rifle, we would all be shooting cheapo savages and tikka's. Hense, the reason I kill 95% of my animals by stick and string.

Some like quality machining. Like I. Some like, you might like medeocre whatever. This is a guns page where we talk about "likes and wants". Not your needs.
True but if you start a need or don't need that would be a very long and very disputed list. Compound bows, tree stands, rangefinders, carbon suits, bdc reticles, etc. If you were talking to someone from the midwest about not needing a rifle to hunt you would get a funny look. Is it need or necessary?

I don't buy new guns. Ever. Well, I did buy a bushyAR and marlin lever. I buy donors for a good price. Then make it what I want. Out of the probably several dozen guns that have ran thru my hands, none was exactly the way I like it from the factory.

There was only one gun I have shot that came the way I want it. And thats an FN-SPR A1. Nothing was needed, nothing needed changed. But still I see folks changing out the bolt handle.

Even Sako 75's which come close to being the way I like it, needs a new stock. A mcmillan fits the fill.

I am trying to go back in life. I try to hunt with bows I make out of one piece of wood. I am trying to use arrows I make. I am trying without much luck, to knap my heads, but its harder than makeing a primitive selfbow. Just what I enjoy.

your clarification is noted but does anyone care?

Kinda what I was thinking.

I had trouble with my first 300RUM. Sometimes wouldn't grab. I replaced it with a supposal stronger "brownells clip". And it worked. But then I had a Baltimore SWAT guy show me his bolt. And I liked the classy look.

No doubt that the Sako is a superior system than the factory Remington piece but if I were going to spend the money on the extractor modification (especially if I were building from the ground up) I would go M16 style over the Sako style. It's an even stronger and more reliable system than the Sako style is.

I heard that too. I guess badger is about the only one I know selling the kit. If I was opening the bF to a 300RUM or even 338 lapua I would consider the badger kit.
