284 win build?

I was thinking of building a 284 win for a long range rig. I am looking for suggestions for the action, i would like to have at least a 3.0 inch OAL. Should i just build it on a long action?

    Since long range is you intent, you'll need to be seating long bullets. You'll appreciate what a long action offers.

    +1. Had mine built on a Borden Timberline long action specifically so I could shoot 168gr. Bergers.

    I built one this year, it'a sweet caliber. Rem 700 Long action with a 28" Benchmark #4 and an HS stock. I'm loading the 168 Berger to 3.140" and getting about 2780fps with H3831sc. Good luck with your build!

    Thanks for the input 168 gr bergers are what i had in mind. I figured i could get about 2800 fps. out of them and that is obviously achievable.

    I am thinking of the weatherby vanguard for the action, since you can pick one up for $350, and manners makes a stock for them, timney makes a trigger and it has a better extractor than the rem 700. I know i could have a sako style extractor placed on a remi but this seems to more budget friendly.
