Re: 300 WSM-Stiller, Surgeon, Defiance, or Badger?

Of all the rifles we have the most finicky and biggest pain to load single rounds into is the Model 70's, all the others I can throw a round down the tube and fire no issues and I don't have to mash every round into the mag and feed from it.

Don't understand the whole bending recoil lugs and action twisting out of the bedding, I shoot as big a rounds and bullets as you can in a Remington or Savage and I haven't had a bent recoil lug or had an action move when properly bedded nor have I ever seen anyone bring it up as if it's a plague other than Bart.

As long as the action is true and strong it really doesn't matter.
Concern yourself with the best gunsmiths and forget barrels and actions.

Remington is my choice because I have spent 4 decades behind a 700 trigger and you can make a 700 whatever you want with the bazillion parts available.

Of the custom actions Stiller gets my vote.
