Stiller precision predator, least expensive custom action I found, $950, ship it to heart and have them screw a tube on it, $650, jewll trigger $230, McMillan stock $500. Save a hundred or so and go with a blind magazine. Save another houndred and go with a Rifle Basics trigger. Heart also dose coating. Ship the action and order the stock the same day and the stock will show up about a month before the barreled action. Hope it helps. Stiller's are made in Texas, which strongly influenced my decision.

I built mine on a Stiller Predator and am more than satisfied with it. Mike Bryant did the work and it is superb. I used the stiller on his recommendation. Mike builds precision rifles for a living and one of his rifles set the 600 yard BR world record, so he knows his craft. I have shot other custom actioned rifles (Nesika and Borden) and they are very nice too, but based on my sample of one, I can't see them being any better than the predator.

There are better designs. Go and look at some M70's, Ruger 77's, Kimber, Mausers etc and see that their extractors don't break as easy, bolt handles stay on, safeties work better and triggers are safer as well.

They don't double feed and jam as often either!

Hunters will do better shooting the most powerful rifle they can handle!
