Re: Canyon rifle vs. self built
IMO, if you are going to fork out the cash for a custom build you should use a custom action as well. The advantages are numerious and you'll be happier in the long run, especially if you are wanting a 338 Edge or other magnum cartridge. Stiller, Bat, Surgeon, Raptor, and several others are leaps and bounds better than an accurized 700. But, that also depends on your definition of accuracy and what you want out of the rifle. Like many other things in life, you get what you pay for. Good luck.
