.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.

Re: .338lm

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.
