    What are you looking to do with it? Factory or custom?

    Imo I say go with a Ruger #1 in .270, .30-06, or .300 Win Mag for a factory rifle. My friend has one in .270 and it is a very fine shooting piece.

    If wanting to go custom, Allen Precision all the way!

    There are a ton of options with single shot bolt actions. If you want a falling block design, then the Ruger #1 is probably the top platform for custom builds.

    For all out accuracy I would chose a solid floor bolt action Like the 40x single shot.(No
    opening in the bottom for a magazine).

    There are other actions made this way and some custom actions also.

    These actions are very strong/rigid and bed very good.

    I love the single shot falling block rifles and have 5 of them but the two piece stock and the
    design of the action just can,t compete with a bolt for accuracy.

    Just my opinion.
