Re: 338 edge build
What bottom Metal are you going to use? That will be an additional consideration, unless you're making it a single shot.
As far as custom actions, Allen Precision, BAT Machine, Borden, Stiller and I'm sure others.
They all offer Remington 700 actions, probably be able to find a VERY strong VERY straight action in the $900-1300 range, but will require zero gunsmithing dollars to make it ready to go.
As far as stocks, check out McMillen, Manners, Brown Precision, ...
If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.
My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives
