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
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.
