.338lm

Hi y'all from PA, just joined the site looks great, and lots of good information here! Anyway the time has come for me to invest in a new gun, I'm currently shooting a custom. 308 that I built myself to get my feet wet per say, but I was looking into a bigger gun, most likely the. 338LM for which I will do all my own reloading. My question is should I bother attempting to build it myself or buy from a smith. I think with the investment it would benefit me to have it built for I am not that good yet. Can anyone suggest where to start contacting for the build? And what I should expect. Thanks everyone

    Tons of good gunsmiths are sponsors on this website. Look at the sponsor profile page and contact some of them.

    Id give Kevin Cram ( http://www.montourcountyrifles.com/ ) a call; he's right in your neck of the woods and a sponser here... He's doing a build for me now and I can tell you he's a great guy to talk with and work on a build with you...

    Scroll down till you find the thread on the Savage .338LM.

    A lot of people are extremely happy with their's and they come at a fraction of the cost of having one built.

    Also check the LRH classifieds as you will occasionally find very nice custom or semi custom 338 LM's for sale there.

    When you say you built your current rifle yourself what does that mean, Savage with a prefit or do you have a lathe and the capability to chamber and fit a barrel.
