    From a couple people that I've talked to that hjave built on both actions the Lawton is a bit tighter and better built than the Predator.
    I've never actualy chucked either one up and done any compairing but from comments I've heard from two gun builders I would choose the Lawton.

    hi

    i have had 4 predators and was not impressed by them,
    the lake of bolt fluting and the finish of the bolts was not to my liking.

    i have now ordered 6 Lawton's on the strength of Kirby's report on them. but have not received them yet.
    but for the price they are both good actions,and i suppose it is down to personal preference

    both are good actions, but I think the advantage on the smaller Lawtons is that they come with extended bolt, and either port or even dual port.

    The Stiller new 338 lapua action looks like a great action too.
