I am just starting to gather parts for my first custom long range rifle build. I currently have a Remington Sendero 300 win mag but would like to step up to a 338. I will keep the 300 as is. I would like to build either a 338 Edge or a 338 Lapua. My first purchase will be the action. I am thinking of Kirby's Raptor, Surgeon or something from Defiance or Borden. Looking for input on the actions I have listed. Has anyone got experience with the Raptor yet or is it to new to have guns out there? I was thinking of buying the action and stock and then turning them over to a gunsmith. Good idea or best just to save the money and have them do it? Thanks in advance for your input.
