.408 action question?

I'm looking at building a .338 improved version of the .408, I'm wondering if there are any standard size actions that could fit in a Model 700 stock that could handle this cartridge. It's going to be a single shot, and I don't mind having to pull the bolt to remove a live round. I've got a couple LA 700 stocks, and also a couple barrel blanks. I've been looking real hard at the stiller Actions. I just wasn't sure if there was an action out there that would fit the bill.

Thanks

Earl...
The Tac 408 will not be a good fit in the standard 700 stock because of it's length.
Eric is right about the BAT.
