Need a long action for a 300wsm build

I'm going to have a 300wsm built. I would prefer it on a long action. Anyone know where to find a in stock quality rem 700 style action. Would like a Surgeon or Stiller.
Oh and I need it in the next couple weeks.
Thanks

I see it alot, but just don't seem to understand, LA and WSM? Why not the .300WM? In my mind it will always be 3X what the WSM is. And, to top it off, alot less problem from start to finish.

Why will a 300 WSM cause more problems from start to finish?

#1 WSMs can be a bitch to make feed well from a staggered magazine. #2 I've several WSMs that can be finicky to load for, not so with the WM. The Winchest Mag. will have case capacity enough to handle even the heaviest of .30cal. bullets, not so with the WSM. "The WSMs,,, a marketing ploy by a dying company, that died anyway!" The .300 Winchester magnum will always be "more" than the WSMs.

Well I've owned a couple wsm, but my 7mm wsm is by far a better shooter than any 300 win mag I've shot. Working up a load was simple and my rifle likes four different powders and shoots them all identical within 10fps. My rifles cycles I'm a short action with a mag kit perfectly. I have no issues and bullet weight for weight 7mm bc blows a 30cal out of the water. By far I will be building more 6.5 wsm and 7mm wsm and my favorite mag length 7mm-300win shoots amazing.
