factory actions for .338 lapua

Been hearing the Remington action is not ideal for the the. 338 lapua. I will be dropping the cash for my new gun soon and would like some input before I commit. That being said I love rem 700 actions, will I be safe?

    I know it might not be what you want to hear... but for the money you are going to spend on getting just a rem lapua action.. I would go custom.. I just got a Defiance for my new build on a lapua case.. and its one of the nicest actions I've ever played with.. plus the order time was only about a month and a half..

    count on it being $1100 and get the action that you want, exactly. thats what customs are about. Ive seen a few defiance actions and they are *nice*.

    stiller is about $1100... BAT and Defiance are about $13/1400... surgeon is close to $1800 ... BAT ,DEF, stiller for me..

    plus is you ever go to sell it.. the resale value will be much better and more sought after with a custom action...

    Look at poll at bottom of this page.338 LAPUA action.Good info,you can get a great rifle for that that is real close to custom.I plan on getting a Sako TRG when I get enough fun tickets.The Weatherby Accumark TRR is a look alike with similar features.I have a mark V, and a Defiance,and have shot the Sako, the 2 factory are nice for the money

    Would you consider the 338 edge? You could use your Remington action!
