Thank you for the input....
Best part is we are actually neighbors so to speak. Pierce is about 2 hours from here.
I'm wanting a lightweight medium range rifle with a MacMillan stock and a good trigger and I've heard that their titanium actions are excellent. I need to keep weight as a prime consideration and I'm shooting for no more than 8 pounds scoped and braked (if required).
I had a friend visit Pierce last week and he was very impressed. No fancy store front, just a machine shop with lots of machine tools.
I'll be dropping by and discussing my needs with them and see what they recommend. From what I've been told (by others), the main issue is getting a barrel for the action. I guess barrels have very long lead times.
I've always bought factory rifles (and had good luck accuracy wise with most, notably Savages) but I believe it's time for a lightweight custom rifle
