"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.

Re: New long range rifle

I just finished a long range elk rifle. Remington 700, lilja barrel, reworked action, and HS precision stock. I already owned the action and put about 1,000 into the rebuild. Barrel is sporter weight and will put 160's in the same hole. Have not yet had good of luck with 180 Bergers but I have not done much load development with them. Caliber is 7 mm STW

Re: New long range rifle

I had my latest long range varmint gun built in 7 Rem mag to take advantage of the high BC 180 gr Berger VLD bullets.
I wanted a "best" quality build as well so I went with a BAT action, Kreiger barrel, Jewell trigger, Greybull stock with bedding block milled out and glass bedded, and Schmidt Bender scope.
It's kinda heavy at 13.5 lbs, but it's worked out great with numerous kills on rock chucks between 900 and 1300+ yards.
