I'll let you decide what are good actions.

But Sako, Savage and Tikka all have tang safeties that I can think of right off.

Browning is your choice if a tang safety that can handle the stw easily is on the menu. I've been thinking of doing one myself but the $ haven't been allocated yet. Get either a 300 rum or 375 h@h mag and a browning a-bolt II 7 mag and have it re-chambered/stamped.

I love my 700's, A-Bolt II's, and Weatherby Mark V's.

If you want tang safety, the old Ruger 77 Mark II stainless actions are nice.

Re: tang safety action?

Your will have more options with a build on a Savage action (tang safety), than all others combined.
