A good gunsmith can build you whatever you want. If you want a 300 wsm, I would suggest buying a action that is chambered originally as a wsm or rsaum. It will save you the cost of paying a gunsmith to open the action and bolt up to accept that case and have a new extractor installed.

You can go with a custom action too! It will push your budget to the limit. But it won't need accurized like a factory action will, Saving you cash that way, you'll need to buy a floorplate, follower, etc. And a trigger for it, since most don't come with any of that stuff.
