Affordable custom action?

I want to build a 7wsm or 7mm hunting rifle. I figure even the cheaper custom actions would be better than a factory action. What are some of the more affordable custom actions, with a dbm? Thanks

    By the time you purchase and true a 700 action you are in the ballpark of a new Stiller.

    It looks expensive till you break it out! By the time you buy and rebuild a Rem your right near or over the cost of a Stiller, if you own the action already and don't consider it into the value then you can come in under but not by as much as a guy thinks. We sink a lot of money a hundred at a time into fixing an action but in the end it's not cheap.

    Don't forget the stiller comes with a pinned recoil lug, a pinned canted rail base, the M-16 extractor all ready done, side bolt release, fluted bolt, and ready for a Tac. bolt knob or use the one that comes with it. Not to mention trued up and ready to go.

    Like others have already said, you can't get a 700 rem there for the same $.
