    What if any is the difference between the Stiller TAC actions and the Predator actions?

    Copy and Paste from their website

    Predator® and TAC Differences
    There are very few differences between the TAC and the Predator actions. Here they are:

    The bottom cutout on repeaters

    The Predator short and long, 308 and magnum boltfaces have an extended loading box cutout. The cut is 0.130 longer than a standard Remington. It will take Wyatt's Outdoor or HS Precision extended boxes.

    The 223 boltface Predator, TAC30 and TAC300 series actions have the standard cutout and will take a Remington box as is.

    Scope holes

    The Predator XP, short and long action has 6 - 48 TPI screw holes.

    All TAC actions and the Predator Xtreme have 8 - 40 TPI screw holes.

    Bolt Knob, all threaded on

    Predator and Predator Xtreme have small teardrop.

    All TAC actions have larger tactical knob anodized black.

    Finish Color

    Predator and Predator Xtreme are matte finished stainless

    All TAC actions have black oxide finished stainless.

    TAC338 and Predator Xtreme

    Same action except color and name. Both have universal cutout on bottom for either AI magazine or Weatherby box

    Thanks that helps a lot, I guess if one wanted to put Seekins bottom metal on the predator would be the one to go with
