Re: bat machine or stiller

Have you given any thought to Kirby's, APS Raptor action? I'm not aware if it comes in LH & RH, but it would most definately be worth looking into if your comparing best of the best. Kirby is somewhat of a pioneer, & a definate "go to guy" for anything based off of the Cheytac. He also sells his APS Raptor actions, should you already have a different builder lined up.
Worth a look IMO.

winmag:

The Allen Precision Shooting "Raptor" action supports the Allen Xpress line of cartridges, not the Allen Magnum line (some of which are 408 CT-based) - see the Raptor page - Raptor Receivers

Other possible actions that support 408 CT-based cartridges are shown on my Rifle Components webpage (legend numbers 2 and 3) and include Barnard P-Chey, Snowy Mountain 600 (and possibly 450 - can't confirm as their site is undergoing redesign and the product pages are not up), the Noreen ULR single shot, and the next to largest of the Xtreme actions from Xtreme Machining.

That noted, the poster seems focused on Stiller or BAT. As before, between those two, my recommendation (based on my hands-on assessment of both) is the BAT.
