Remington seems the most popular, but what other stock actions are preferred? Is certain actions better with some calibers, and if so, which do you like for what caliber?

Savage, just because it is so easy to customize and change barrels.

Savage is great for a DIY and shoot very good to boot.

Tikka or Remington come in about the same. The tikka is more expensive initially but by the time the gunsmith gets the Remington up to par you will have spent the same or more money.

6.5, is the Icon still in production? I've nothing but positive reviews but don't see it on their website. If no longer in production, was it just too expensive for the market?

M70 actions have all the best features for a hunting rig.

No, the Icon is no longer in production. When Smith and Wesson bought tc, they canceled the Icon.

I bought my 243 icon at bass pro for 500 bucks new. Best 500 dollar rifle I have ever shot.

Sure wish I could have snagged a 6.5 creedmoor icon when I had the chance.

Also, take a look at the Icon Warlord. They had a great recipe for a rifle there.

Added features to the Warlord over the standard Icon.

Integral 20moa rail
Manners t2a stock
hand lapped 5r barrel
AICS mags

I don't give a damn. I can afford about any action I want, and that's what I choose to use. We can show and tell on the range.

Yup, built my 6.5 off a Savage action, very easy.

Might have to try Tikka though one of these days, I have not fired one but won't be long before I do.
