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.

Re: Best Action for Custom Builds

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.
