I,m not sure why you hate the Remington but that is your business. All that I know is that in the hands of a skilled Gun Smith they can/will shoot with anything and most of the custom actions are cloned
after the 700 action.
The only other action I can think that is shorter is the falling blocks like the 1885 low wall Winchester.
The entire action is around 3 inches long.
I have a 22 k hornet on one made in 1888 with a Lilja barrel and it is amazingly accurate.
I don,t know much about the coopers but they have a good reputation.
Good luck on your project.
