Any decent gunmaker can work with an SPS action just as well as any other 700 or 40X action, it just may take a little bit more work to get it perfect.
Custom actions are nice and sometimes required to build some calibers that are either to fat or too long for a 700 to accept well, but make no mistake a 700 is a decent action to build on. I have built a great many that shoot as good or better than many based on custom actions. Unless your plan is full blown benchrest or Fclass, which a 300 RUM is not the best choice for, using a 700 SPS is a great base to work with.
