Our friends at Target Shooter UK Magazine recently reviewed an innovative new rifle action engineered and crafted in Canada. This features a Rem 700 footprint, with some clever features, including a 3-lug bolt with floating bolt head, dual ejection plungers, and integral recoil lug. The action is very smooth-running and seems well-suited to a variety of disciplines. It can take any Rem 700-compatible trigger. The reviewer tested this new action in a GS Precision rifle fitted with 26″ Benchmark barrel, KRG Whiskey 3 stock, and 10-oz. Trigger Tech Diamond trigger.

The Target Shooter Magazine reviewer was impressed by the Ultimatum Action and its features:

“I’m holding one of the first Ultimatum Precision actions to arrive in the UK and they are even more gorgeous than I remembered. The action is called the ‘DEADLINE’ – which is neatly incised into the multi-flat action body. The fluted bolt-body is a beefy 21mm diameter (most custom actions are 18mm) and the bolt-shroud and rear tang have been tastefully re-designed.”

“The Ultimatum Precision Deadline action is a joy to use with its slick, short-throw [60-degree] bolt-lift.”

“The action is machined from 4340 HTSR steel with a LHN (Liquid Hard Nitride) coating, which gives the action an attractive black sheen and is wear-resistant and corrosion resistant. The fluted bolt incorporates a floating bolt-head design – similar idea to the Savage – which means that caliber changes are a cinch, especially with the option of a Savage-type, barrel-nut fixing. The Ultimatum Precision bolt is however a three-lug bolt, which usefully keeps bolt-lift to 60 degrees. Other useful features are the integral recoil-lug, dual ejection plungers in the bolt-face, and a pinned +20 MOA Picatinny scope rail.”

From Canada, with Lugs — New Ultimatum U300 Action

Canada Ultimate Precision U300 Bolt Action 3-lug

There is a new tactical action from Canada with some very interesting features. The innovative U300 Bolt Action from Ultimatum Precision features a Rem 700 footprint and three-lug bolt with 60° bolt lift (like a Barnard). The floating bolt head is quickly removable, so you can swap to a different rim size in a few minutes. Another interesting feature is a special “Battery Safety”. The firing pin can only protrude from the bolt face if the lugs are locked and in battery. This ensures that if the bolt head is not properly installed, the rifle does not fire.

The black Cerakoted U300 action is strong and tough — the 4340 steel is hard-nitrided for surface durability. The action-maker says the hard nitride and Cerakote coatings improve wear resistance, corrosion resistance, chemical resistance, and hardness. The U300 action fits AICS-compatible detachable box magazines.

Designed for Savage-type Barrel Nuts
The Ultimatum U300 system was design to accept a barrel nut so “pre-fit” barrels (configured for the U300 bolt) can be easily installed (or swapped) by the owner with no gunsmithing required. The U300 uses standard 1-1/16″ x 16 Remington 700 tenon threads, so it can fit pre-chambered barrels with Remington-style threading. NOTE: Barrels headspaced properly by a smith can also be mounted conventionally without a nut. The user can choose the system he prefers.
