Default Which action to "re-use" ?

I want to build a 260 Remington, basically rebarrel a rifle I have, question is which action to use...
I have four possibilities for sacrifice, a Weatherby Vanguard, a Savage 110E, a Savage 11 and a Howa 1500, all that I can part with their current configuration and still be OK
All ideas and reasons behind would be appreciated. Thank you.

The weatherby and Howa have metric threads.

Are they short actions? You might be able to do the swap yourself with the Savage actions.

Yup, you can find barrels, wrenches, and headspace gauges online.

Why .260? Seems like 6.5 Creedmoor can do everything the .260 does and more.

If you are planning to make this a long range build keep in mind most short actions wont be long enough to load the long heavy bullets in a 260. I would use the 110E given your options and plan on single loading.

Use the Savage (either one) and do it youself. If you don’t like it then swap it again.

All long actions, which I considered for the longer bullets in the mags too

I already have a 6.5 and have the reloading gear for 260 now, from an estate sale, so I figured why not, as I've read great things about the 260, and wanted a new tester.

That's how I was leaning, I have a 110 in 308, but it's the old original action and barrels are few and far between for that action unless I go custom... And the 110E is in 30-06, so the bolt works for the 260...
