    Myself and a buddy are looking to dive off into the custom 700 action world. Looking at the Kelbly, Borden, Stiller, etc in 700 footprint. We both use picatinny rails for the scope mount and would like that in 0 MOA. And we both want a left port right bolt.

    Any opinions?

    defiance machine deviant sounds like what your wanting... integrated pic rail and recoil lug..

    I have two of them, great actions

    sounds like your building more of a hunting/tactical rifle to me. This is the perfect action for it!


    after that... if you were building a target rifle, competition gun... itd be the borden actions.

    kelbly panda actions are for BR style guns.

    stiller actions are good, hunting and tactical style.. but they dont have the integrated lug and rail parts. thats why Id pick defiance firat

    What type of shooting are you planning on doing.....B/R, PRS, a hunting scenario or just plinking?

    I am getting a Single shot for target, and it will spend most of its life in a benchrest stock. I will be shooting short line and 600 matches. I shoot 6BR and 243. Maybe even a 1000 yard this year. Probably get a Jewel varmint trigger or possibly the new Rifle Basix BR trigger.

    Sounds like a BAT action may be more in line with that type of shooting.

    You should look into Bix 'n Andy triggers as well.

    Wow the Rebel is truly a custom!!! they let you pick whatever option you want and it is included in the price. That is pretty cool.

    BAT Model VR. They will build you any configuration you want if time is not a consideration.

    BAT model VR if you want a short action & model HR if you want a long.
    Both available in Chrome Moly or Stainless plus what ever options you want them configured to.

    Actually, of the customs mentioned the Bat is very competitive price wise. It may very well may be the best value for under $1200.

    It is $1200 as I recall but nothing is included. But I will double check. As I recall it was like six months to get one too...
