Re: best edge actions

If you are going to go with a custom action I would build a 338 Lapua and maybe go the improved route. If it were me I would probably not go the improved route, but after shooting Lapua brass in another rifle I own I love it.

Re: best edge actions

I built a rifle on a Rem 700 action; and I now have around $2,000 invested in the gun and it doesn't shoot nearly as well as my other custom guns with Hall and Nesika actions. Until you pay for all the work needed on a Rem, you can buy a custom action cheaper. Top of the line is BAT, but the Stiller, Kelby, Lawton and others are just as good.

Hands down Surgeon Action. Personally I would go with the XL because it has an integral 30 MOA Picatinny rail and integral recoil lug. Both features make the action stiffer and more accurate. Single shot or repeater you can't go wrong with a Surgeon. Then again, I may be a little partial.
