Re: Stainless or Blued for a .300 WM Build?
I was told by a reputable smith (I'm paraphrasing here so forgive me if I go a little astray) that chrome moly actions are stronger than stainless actions and that a high performance round like a Lapua, CheyTac or similar wildcat would be best done on a chrome moly action. For run of the mill standard cartridges it should boil down to your personal preference or availablility.
The critters have to win every time, I only have to win once.
