Regardless of price what would be the rifle action you would stick on a gun. I personaly like weatherby/howa 1500. I know most people are going to stick to their rem 700 which i like too. I played with a savage 111 lrh the other day and its action wasnt bad either but ive also held a couple savages that weren't near as smooth as others. I know a lot of people start building guns up from savage/stevens actions. I've heard weatherby mark V actions are like cutting through hot butter but they don't seem to be used as much as others. So if you could have your pick of any action whose would it be and it doesnt have to be one i mentioned.
