thanks to all that have responded, very useful
If that's the case, all of the above recommendations are good choices. I will however, recommend to stay away from Remington 710 and 770.

TC Icon and Ventures are good choices too. If it was me, I'd go with Remington 700 or Savage 110 action for future semi-custom builds. The Savage action is hard to beat for DIYs.

I am currently building a .270 AI on a Savage 110 LA action with 30" barrel from Lilja with 3-groove, 1:8 twist, #6 contour ... and will be taking advantage of the 165/175 grain VLD bullets from Matrix ...

Not that it matters but I didn't say you did. The point is the timing of the advice, luckily, according to the OP, his friend is still on the market for a rifle and should be making the decision soon.
