Action choice for custom 7mm WSM Long Range Rifle
Ok, I have settled on a 7mm WSM for my next custom rifle, it will be have a Border 5R stainless barrel possibly a 9 twist, a Macmillan A5 stock, Badger / HS or similar bottom metal and magazine. and a Jewel or Shillen trigger - this much I know.
Now I want to decide on a suitable action, I already have a couple of blueprinted Rem 700's and would rather have a full custom rifle made, so with that in mind, I have the following choices, (they are not in preferance):
1, Nesika M
2, Surgeon Tactical
3, BAT RS / L Repeater
4, Barnard SM
5, Hansen Medium (improved Rem 700 design)
All the above actions are a similar cost and offer excellent accuracy potential. I want a repeater as the rifle will be used as a Long Range hunter and I would also like to extract every little last bit of accuracy - hence the choice of action.
What does everone think would be the most prudent choice?
Oh, I will be using 160 grain through to 200 grain bullets.
