"Best" Action: BAT is likely best in the world. Many others are excellent: Borden, Surgeon, Pierce, Nesika, Stiller, Winchester 70, Remington 700
"Good" barrel: Most any from a Douglas on up. Great barrels include Krieger, Hart, Bartlein, Broughton, Brux, Lilja, Obermeyer, Shilen, Rock, Benchmark, Bison, Criterion, LW, Schneider.
