Borden Action FAQs:

What are the best Borden actions for improving rifle accuracy?

There is no “fits all” answer, because so much of it hinges on you. What is your shooting style? Are you competition target or hunting? What is your experience level with long range rifles  – and with single or repeater?

Borden crafts several distinct actions, in the two traditional styles:

  • Borden Rimrock Family: The Rimrock actions are available in multiple designs, as single-shot actions and repeaters designed for benchrest.
  • Borden Alpine Ridgeline: These are single shot and repeating actions, manufactured to benchrest tolerances – reliable for hunting and are inletted for short action.
  • Borden Timberline: Like the Ridgeline, the Timberline is traditionally a benchrest design but provides dependable action in the field, and is inletted for long action.

How often should you clean a bolt action?

We can’t stress enough that dirty actions will decrease accuracy. Forming a routine to clean and maintain your receiver in non-negotiable. A bolt action rifle needs to have a consistent cleaning schedule, whether hunting or competition shooting. Consider a routine that will be easy to form a habit once you’ve become accustomed to your rifle. Either way, always clean the bolt every time you clean the bore.


What is the best way to bed a Borden action?

Pillar bedding is our recommendation. But if you’re unsure, give us a call and a professional gunsmith will be happy to assist you. A stress-free bedding is imperative, so make sure to always use spec bedding screws. During bedding, there should be no pressure applied, except for the weight of the action and gravity. Careful and slow are your greatest allies in bedding.
