I am in the process on building my own tack driver. What is the better action to use. I am a lefty and am looking at either a Rem 700, Win 70 or maybe a Savage 10/110? Thanks for the input.

Remington 700. Just an opinion. It's the only one I'm familiar with, and I'm satisfied.

700 all the way, better stock and better trigger. Sgtar51

Have to agree with all the above post.Rem.700.

I like the Rem.700 for the basis of an accurate rifle. I've have a short-action (.22-250) and a long action (6.5-300WbyMag.), both customized, heavy-barreled M-700s, that shoot better than I am able. I attend a few benchrest matches and if it's not a true custom action, it's a modified M-700. Stock triggers are not only easily adjusted, but good replacement units are universally available too. Conversely, a buddy had built a .300WinMag around a Win.M-70 and it shoots very, very well.

Better to use a Hall or a Stolle Action

I have a 110 I plan to "build". A friend has one that will put every round in a dime at 100yds - all day long. He is never satisfied and has told me a new barrel has gotten him down to a single ragged hole - and I believe him although I have not witnessed the latest. Things sure are easy to work on!
