I am looking to build a solid deer/antelope/possibly elk gun in the near future. When the smoke clears, is there that much difference between the factory actions that a rifle can be built off of? I am not interested in a custom action at this point in my life. This question stems from a rifle that is for sale locally. I can buy a Savage long action rifle for $275. The rifle is obviously used and the barrel has been recrowned (horrible job). With my plan to have a laminate stock made and a new barrel installed, this looks like a great deal. Is there a better chance of the rifle shooting more accurately with a 700 or a model 70 action than the Savage or does it all come down to personal preferance?
