Gathering parts for a build

I am just starting to gather parts for my first custom long range rifle build.

I currently have a Remington Sendero 300 win mag but would like to step up to a 338. I will keep the 300 as is.

I would like to build either a 338 Edge or a 338 Lapua. My first purchase will be the action. I am thinking of Kirby's Raptor, Surgeon or something from Defiance or Borden.

Looking for input on the actions I have listed. Has anyone got experience with the Raptor yet or is it to new to have guns out there?

I was thinking of buying the action and stock and then turning them over to a gunsmith. Good idea or best just to save the money and have them do it?

Thanks in advance for your input.

Re: Gathering parts for a build

There all real good choices. Kirbys would be my choice as its is built by one of us for what we do.
