What action would you use.

I am going on a Elk hunt, in western Montana this fall. I am going to build a long range rifle. 7mm mag. with a no. 5 contour barrel with a 1-10 twist I plan on using 168gr. Berger VLD bullets. What action would you use, Savage, Winchester model 70, or Rem. 700. I need your help with picking out the action. Thank you.

    From your list, any of those action will suffice. I'm a Remington man myself but, if you don't have one of these actions as a donor, a custom action might be a better way to go.

    I'm a big Savage fan but have yet to do a true custom rig and have to do it all myself.
    Be sure to practice for wolf size targets, you may have to shoot your way to the elk.
