338 Edge build question

What is the best way to go as far as an action for a 338 Edge build?
Borden Timberline, Surgeon 1086 or a trued/blueprinted Remington 700 action.

Also who's bottom metal would you use?

    Remington 700 LA from a chrome moly donor rifle in 300 RUM. Then have one of these excellent smiths on here true it up for you and install a Wyatt box.

    Or get a Stiller Predator LA mag bolt face, but you will have to buy BDL floorplate, follower and spring for it.
    If you don't ever plan on selling the rifle, I would go the Remington action route. If there is a chance of selling it in the future, go custom action. for some reason they seem to hold their value more.

    get the timberline action unless you already have a remmy action to hand.
    the borden actions are some of the nicest actions i have seen i have two but not in .338 edge.
