Best Hunting Grade Custom Action

I am having 'ol Montana boy build me another gun in a over the next year in the hog leg 338 Kahn. I am going to be shooting the 300gr Wildcat and I want the gun to be a repeater. Kirby has told me that we probably wont be able to get a Rem 700 action to support a repeater so my question is what custom hunting grade action would be the best.

The gun will be used for bear hunting as well as out to 1000yd elk hunting.

Just wanted to see what you guys thought

thanks
steve

I had lunch with Jerry Stiller last Saturday and he will be coming out with one soon that will take a 338 Lapua. I will be getting one to shoot the 338 Lapua AI.

Re: Best Hunting Grade Custom Action

Thanks for the info guys,

only thing that scares me about the custom action is the price, but then again how can I complain about price if I ever wanna go on a brown bear hunt. OUCH have you seen how much that costs, hope the wife keeps makin good money!!!!!

Then again I think I still owe some Montana guy some cash, PLEASE let her keep makin money, these guns are just to much fun.

thanks guys

steve
