It is much better to Hit the Animal in the right place, with a Rifle you can shoot well, then to hit it poorly with a Large Calibre..John Nosler

Probably not a helluva lot in the sense they're both heavy unless you stump up for a Ti version

Price and the NZ $ getting worse against the US $ and 15% GST make them expensive , probably better to get a titanium Rem action and have it tuned

Not a big problem to get one, nice actions.

Depends what you are wanting it for, re Titanium VS Stainless

If its for a magnum the action weight is immatertial

Defiance are the best out there.

Probably not much difference in price unless you can find a real cheap Rem Ti action that's in good nick

They are all getting old now & Ti wears really quickly compared to CM or SS actions

The imported custom actions are much better & stronger
