Building 300 Norma

I want to build a 300 Norma, any recommendations on an action, prefer lightest weight, strength and stainless possibly. Looking for recommendations from you guys. I can afford something good, but like the idea of a recognizable name. Has to be a rem 700 footprint though, but i do like a shorter bolt throw, Sako TRG? Thanks for the help. Where do I get a reamer for it?

Re: Building 300 Norma

I like the thought of a BAT but I don't like the weight of them, the barrel I have is 3.5 lbs, I can probably get a stock maybe an ultralight at around 2.5 or so, a nightforce I have but would like something a little lighter, going to check S&B anyway as I don't have one and then the action, trigger and break. Would like to come in under 12lbs. Maybe not possible?

Defiance makes a Remington clone with a .750" bolt for 338 Lapua bolt faces. It's probably as light as you will get.

I'm gonna call BAT and Defiance. Thanks for chiming in. I guess I should call Snowy Mountain too, I like their muzzle breaks. Stiller deserves a call too.
