I'm not really sure and don't believe it truly matters. Stainless alloys tend to be very tough and are a real problem to machine. Chromolly (4140) is a alloy steel and produces prodigious strength... Either material would not be the weak link as far as action strength... Design and tolerances are where actions are truly made..
