I just did some pricing and my calcs show a single-bolt BAT HRPIC (which includes mag well cut, any MOA Pic rail you'd care to spec, bolt fluting, and integral recoil lug) at $1400.

The Deviant with .750 bolt, mag cut, fluting, recoil lug, and 20 MOA rail comes in at $1480

The Rebel with mag cut, mid-range price on the fluting at $55, the Pic rail, and the recoil lug at $1400.

Yes the bolts are less but don't forget to add the fluting.

If you are not set on getting a second bolt and you haven't compared the two actions side by side, I'd make that side by side my first priority. Like BAT says, "cry once" (in your case ONLY if you need a second bolt).

Having not seen how you spec'd the Defiance, my numbers may be off. The above just in case you didn't note all the options needed with the Defiance. I'd also ask each company what your configuration will weigh. Having a LONG wait for my BAT HR, I'd also ask both for a semi-firm lead time.

One final note, BAT offers their action (including bolt body) nitrided - add $110 (if that price hasn't changed).

In either case you'll have a nice build.

Wow, thank u sir for doing that research! They are really close in price! I love the fact that the bat and deviant have integral recoil lugs and i assumed the bat only came with a 20moa rail. Now i have to start all over! Lol ill have to compare the two side byside today on myy lunch break thanks again

Re: 338NM action??

Just my .02:

I am in the process of a similar build and I went with the Defiance Deviant with the seekins bottom metal cutout.

I wanted 40 MOA cant in the scope base, but as you know the integrated base is 20 MOA.

My solution is the Spuhr one piece rings. The are very highly regarded and come in 0, 10,20 MOA cants.

Just another way to skin a cat.

So here is another stupid question. How do u add the features u want on the bat from their website. I clicked the "configure action" link and all i could choose was left or right ejection port. Immediately i was taken to the checkout screen. At what point can i choose my bolt fluting, rail spec, nitriding, etc? Its probably a stupid mistake on my part but could someone help me out

Re: 338NM action??

Almost everything is standard on the BAT. You do have to tell them which bolt fluting option you want and port configuration (price is included in the "base" unless you want dual port or left port). If you want a different rail MOA and/or nitriding, you need to call them. Rail MOA is no added cost, nitriding is $110 - unless that has changed). In any case, I'd call.
