Re: Nesika Actions

...like my Nesika "K" model very well... it's certainly not the only good custom action out there but definitely one of the best... hope this helps, Larry

Re: Nesika Actions

The Nesika is a good action, but for the money, look at Jerry Stillers actions such as the Viper, Diamandback, Rattler, Python etc. They are $950 and come with trigger guard and tapered rings. That saves $200 at least over others.

He also is making a new one for custom varminters called the Predator that is about $650 I think. Here is a link to an article on them http://www.6mmbr.com/index.html The article is on the home page, about 3/4 the way down in the blogs on new products.

His actions are second to none and are used by lot of BR shooters both the short and long range game. they are strong and extremely smooth operating.

Re: Nesika Actions

The 22-243 is a very interesting cartridge but it heats barrels and wears throats rather quickly. That would really limit your trigger time with the new rig.

I'd opt for a 22-250 with a 9" twist, maybe even an 8".

Nesika sells their own custom varmint rifles. I've never seen one that wasn't in a magazine but it may be worth looking into.

...bountyhunter... I agree with you, I have a Stiller Predator action on order... should fill the niche between the Rem's & customs very well... looks like delivery around Christmastime... we'll know soon, hopefully... anyway, good shooting & Merry Christmas to everyone... Larry

Re: Nesika Actions

A good benchrest friend told me once "you true up a remington 700 then what have you got" I have A total blue-printed and trued 700 done by a nationaly very well known smith...and what have "I" got...so I bought a NESIKA J and I have never ever looked back a custom action is always every cent worth it...
mine will accept ppc bolt face as well as 308 bolt face calibers it makes it very versitile...you have and intsant "switch barrel" set up ...its very smooth and they look good...kevin brown set a world record (1000 yd) with a NESIKA J....I have found almost any custom action to be a great investment
