Rifle build

So I plan on building my own rifle this year and want some advice on parts. I have set a budget of around $1200 for rifle only. I have been looking around the forum on different threads and doing alot of other reading. I am thinking either .300wm or .308. I have decided on brux barrels for a barrel and a ASI stock. I really need help deciding on a action and anything else I need. Any ideas?

    The ASI stock will eat over $900 of your budget not including extra mags. You may find a used one for less. The barrel will run around 250-300 the action ???

    sorry the above is aics stock price

    Your going to strugle on this one for $1200. $280 on a Brux, $350 to $450 on an action, and your stock is going to be closer to $300. That leaves between $170-$270 for a smith to put it all together. If you buy a Remington action at the right price you should have enough for a smith to do a truing cut on the reciever face, lap the lugs, thread fit and chamber the barrel. For the stock you might want to choose a B&C Medalist or an HS, bolt in or bed yourself.

    I think your going to have to adjust your budget if your wanting to go with a Stiller Action.
