Rifle actions for 300 wm

What action would you choose for a remington 700 based custom 300 wm rifle? I'm thinking on a bat or a kelby.

I like Nesika but Bat is also good.

I built 300 Win on a Defiance and have no complaints.

Re: Rifle actions for 300 wm

I've had the opportunity to play with BAT, Defiance, Stiller, Nesika, Nosler, etc.

I will say that I don't own either yet, but with my limited experience I would rank them in this order.

Nesika
Defiance
BAT
Stiller

Haven't played with Alpine or Borden, the only reason BAT is as low as it is, is because it is EXTREMELY tight, & I worry about it getting bound up with all the debris we encounter in the hunting fields. Nesikas are just... wow.... Defiance is above Stiller (IMHO) due to some design issues I see in the Stiller (IMHO). They are all with in a thick hair of each other & I don't believe there is a clear winner or defined loser in the whole batch. Call your favorites & talk to them, whichever feels right go with it & have fun!
