Re: 7mm-mag to 338RUM?

Thanks for information, I think I will start gathering together my 338RUM. Since I already have a stock, and can get an action fairly cheap, I think I will save for a Jewel trigger, Vias break, and PacNor stainless fluted barrel. Maybe a Ken Ferrel base, and Burris tactical rings. How does this sound? Any suggestions?(this is a great forum)

Why Rifle Basix?

Re: 7mm-mag to 338RUM?

I got to play with a 1.25lb Jewell today, they will bring a tear to your eye they are so good. Only prob with them is i do think it would take some time to get used to how smooth they are. you honestly can barely feel the trigger break in anyway, you just hear the fireing pin release.

I know of a couple of guys who have the Vias brake and they like them but I would point you toward the Holland QD break. It is a partition style break and they work amazingly good and IMOP they are not as load as a port style break. They are also not ported anywhere on the bottom so there is no down blast, I dont know if the Vias is ported on the bottom or not.

I had a bottom ported break on my 300RUM and when you shot it prone with the bbl over ground you would have 3" of dirt land on you after every shot, or in Oklahoma cases sometimes red ants!!!!

I have a Rifle Basix on my 270AM and it is great as well, you will be happy with either trigger.

Get a good pillar bedding job done and break the bbl in properly and you will be good to go


take it easy

Re: 7mm-mag to 338RUM?

I have 2 Jewell triggers already, and also 2 Vias breaks. The Jewells and Vias are mounted on a 7MM-UM, and 6.5-06. They are both set at around 1lb. They are excellent triggers, but a little pricey. If the Rifle Basix is nearly as good, and a little cheaper, I would consider them. The Vias breaks are ported all the way around, and also on the muzzle. They are excellent. The shooting from prone is not a problem, as my 6.5 is a 1000 yard praire dog rifle, and my 7MM-UM is my long range deer rifle. I shoot both off of a homeade praire dog bench, or my deer stand on side of a bean field that is very solid, and allows use of sand bags.
How much do the Holland breaks usually cost, including installation?
Can you pillar bed the H.S. precision stock, that has the full length aluminum bedding block?

jewels will gum up with a little dirt and cold weather. great for a bench gun. rifle basix are made for hunting use.
