    I have a 6.5x47 Lapua built on a Borden Alpine action and I love it, very smooth and accurate.

    Did you mean Pacnor?

    Borden actions are top notch. Use the Borden. Barrels I would go with a Lilja, Kreiger, or a Brux over a Pacnor.

    Kirby Allen one of the top smith here on LRH likes to use the Borden Timberline Magnum receiver on his Edge builds.

    I think I sent Kirby the first Timberline action he built on. He told me that all actions even customs need a bit of squaring but the Timberline was perfect. My Edge is built on a Timberline action; and Jim Borden is a super person to deal with. It's pretty cool when you call and a shooting "Hall of Famer" - World record holder answers the phone.
