If your on a budget, a Lawton receiver would be my first choice. The BAT receivers are very impressive as well for that type of rifle but are more expensive.
The Nesika Bay receivers are amazing but nearly twice the price as the Lawtons and to be honest, I doubt you could tell any difference in performance consistancy wise.
If your looking for a factory receiver, a properly trued Chrome Moly Rem 700 can be set up to use the Lapua very well and will be very accurate. If you like to run things to the ragged edge in pressure, I would not combine the Rem 700 and the Lapua.
The 338 Edge would be a much better fit in the Rem 700 receiver, stainless or Chrome moly.
I would agree, for the most part, the Sako receivers will produce fine shooting rifles. As a custom rifle
builder, I just hate to build on a receiver that I know is not as perfectly true and square as I can get it with a full machining job. I guess I am a bit picky that way but most custom rifle
builders tend to be that way. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
