What brand of action to go with

I am contemplating have a 260 rem or 6.5x284 built. I have narrowed down my action choices down to Borden, Defiance or Surgeon. Any experiences or suggestions?

The rest of the gun will be a 26" Brux #5 contour interrupted fluted barrel, B+C pro stock, EGW bases and rings and a jewell trigger.

The gun will be used for punching paper, coyotes, antelope and deer.

Thanks in advance for your input.

    A vote for Defiance. I am just about to leave to pick up my new 300 win with a Defiance action. I am pumped. I have looked it over and am very pleased wih the quality. The people you deal with are top notch and do what they say, they even got it to us earlier that promised. I cant wait to pull the trigger on this one.... and yes it has a Jewell.

    Check with Surgeon for delivery date. A good friend was at Prague (that is where Surgeon is located) about 3 weeks ago and they wouldn't take an order & deposit on a rifle. They told him to check back in 6 months or so, maybe they would be in position then. Now, that was on a complete rifle, not just an action. Seems they are in the running for a military contract. If they get that contract it could be a long wait.

    My custom was built last summer with a Surgeon single shot short action. I think it took a couple of weeks for the action to get to Jim See. The actions are perfect.

    All three are very good, you will not go wrong with anyone of them. Price and delivery time will be important to most people.

    +1 Defiance, I love mine. $775 with all the bells and whistles is what I paid for mine.
