One that I like is "Defiance Machine" owned and operated by Glen Harrison and his wife Lisa.

Glen is the original founder of Nesika Bay Precision. He's also my friend and a former employer so it's not hard to understand my affection. Prices are very competitive and Glen's stuff just seems to have an elegance/class that I personally am really fond of.

He's a one man band so the QC dept begins and ends with him. That's a plus in my book. Delivery times are probably better than anyone else in the industry. Less than a month in most cases.

Good luck.
I have a Action right now being barreled in 338lm That Glen built i have used just about every custom action builder out there. It also really helped His shop is only 15minutes from the house and i could go talk to him face to face. We was able to sit down and give me about 45 minutes of his time to talk about that i was looking for.

All i can say is The Finest action builder i have ever bought from. There will be many more.

I, too, have an action on order with Glenn. This will be the first of many. He took the time with me, over the phone, to discuss the build I have planned for this receiver, a LR .260 Rem., for the monthly Sporting Rifle matches at Ratone. Expect nice things when that action arrives.

I have a Lilja 10 twist 338 barrel on the shelf that'll finish out at 28-30 inches.

It's a Medium Heavy Varmint taper and SS.

$325 for the stick.

I also a have reamers set up for either 250/300 grain bullets.

I'd opt for the 250's with a 10 twist. A 9.5 works better for the "lawn dart" 300's.

Good luck.
