Pierce Engineering Titanium Actions

Have any of you used these guys or any experience with them? I'm considering building a new sheep gun and am seeking some advice regarding a Ti action.

    I'm planning on chambering it in a 300 Wby. I want to use a Lilja barrel but would like input on barrel contour and twist rate and number of grooves you'd recommend. This gun is primarily going to be a sheep hunting gun (ie:light weight). I want a flat shooting gun that can take a grizzly if need be. That's the reasoning using a 300 Wby and I have a ton of ammo for it already.

    I haven't used the action yet but I am sure it would be a good start. I would go with a #3 fluted barrel and a brake of course. A Manners/McMillan light weight stock would be a good match. Cartridge is fine and if you really like it that is even better. I would assume you are shooting heavy and light bullets (168-200gr maybe heavier) so I would go with a 1/10" twist.

    Re: Pierce Engineering Titanium Actions

    I can't speak directly to the titanium actions, but I have a steel Pierce action and have been very impressed. Before I started my build I went there, walked through the shop, talked to the machinist, etc. they seem to care about what they make, pay attention to detail, and generally have their s**t together when it comes to making precision stuff. My bolt/action lock-up is beyond tight-tolerance and the rifle itself is a laser.

    I am clearly quite biased as my experience has been totally positive, but thought I would share...

    I've been around a couple. They are darn fine actions. I have a TI getting ready for a #3 Brux in another 6.5 SAUM.

    Pierce titanium. I have 4 of their steel actions and wouldn't build on anything else.
