Re: Best Action for Custom Builds

For my money I would buy a Borden, Jim is a pleasure to speak with and stands behind his product.

Second would be a Stiller, hard to beat for the price and then the rest of the 700 clones after...

I wouldn't buy anything with an integral lug, ever.

    I'm all for custom but given the calibers you want, have you considered Weatherby Accumarks? RC? MOA?

    They can do 'custom' versions as well.

    I mentioned that to him last night in a PM, about contacting Weatherby's custom shop and having a set made wtih consecutive serial numbers. The WCS does some beautiful work from what I've seen.

    Considering all three rifles are going to be Weatherby chamberings, I think this is a really cool idea.

    Why no integral recoil lug?

    I'm going to guess it is because of something Jim Borden said.

    Same here. If Remington would introduce their 700 with a slightly extended reciever (length of regular 700+.200" lug) and put an integral .200" lug, that would be awesome! I'd be all about it. Also, switch-barrel setups would be ALOT easier, and smiths wouldn't have to pin any lugs, just headspace each barrel.
