    HI I am starting my rifle build and was wondering if there are any recomendations for which bottom metal to use. The action is a Stiller Predator, basicly a rem 700. Is there any benefit's to the higher end ones over the factory remington ones. thanks

    since no one else will give you an opinion on this and since you are my hunting buddy, I recomend you save your money and just use remington bottom metal. That way you wont be broke when I need gas money for our hunting trips :)

    Sunny Hill Enterprises is who I use on all my stuff and all the guns I build for others.

    yeah, it costs more, but it sure looks a ton better than cast parts.

    Good luck.
